She said she wanted to prevent other women from becoming victims after they broke up after a year and a half, during which time she said a doctor told her she was “lucky to be in. life “.
“This is my before and my after,” said Miss Rochus, who is from Belgium. “No happy ending, no real happiness, just pain and sadness. “
Miss Rochus met her ex-boyfriend on vacation almost two years ago, calling him ‘love at first sight’ and adding that they ‘started living together almost immediately’.
However, her partner, who initially showered the model with gifts and compliments, quickly showed that he had a short temper and a jealous side, she claims.
She said, “Suddenly, I was no longer allowed to wear makeup and I couldn’t wear the clothes I wanted. ”
The model claimed that her boyfriend became more and more aggressive, removing his frustration with the furniture at first.
After punching a hole in a door and knocking a lamp down from the ceiling, he reportedly turned his attention to his young girlfriend.
Miss Rochus said: “He saw me smoke a cigarette with a friend at a party and blew a fuse.
“At home, he grabbed my hair and smashed my face against the heater. I went to my mother’s house that night with my face covered in blood.
She also claimed that the violent episodes became more frequent after that night.
In the summer, Miss Rochus ended up in hospital after another alleged beating.
The model said, “The doctor who checked my injuries was very clear,” you suffered a hard blow to the temple. If it had been a little harder, you might be dead by now ”. ”
Miss Rochus said she filed a complaint against her ex-boyfriend with the police and an investigation into her allegations is underway.
“Watch the #MeToo movement,” she says. “Every woman now knows she shouldn’t be going through this. “
