Prominent podcaster Akademiks, whose real name is Livingston Allen, finds himself at the center of controversy as his ex-girlfriend, Ziya Abashae, took to Instagram Live to make serious accusations against him and two friends.
While these claims are serious, it’s important to note that they are allegations, and the situation remains complex. This incident follows Akademiks’ previous controversial moments, including a physical altercation caught on video in 2022.
In a recent Instagram Live session on December 30, Ziya Abashae accused Akademiks and two friends of sexually assaulting her. She vehemently stated that the encounter was not consensual, refuting Akademiks’ earlier claim of consensual engagement in an orgy.
Abashae shared her side of the story, asserting that Akademiks and his friends assaulted her and that he later tried to cover it up.
Abashae mentioned a rape kit being conducted after the alleged incident, emphasizing her determination to speak out against what she believes to be a false narrative. It’s crucial to treat these claims with sensitivity and await further developments.
This recent controversy adds to Akademiks’ troubled history, as he faced public scrutiny in 2022 when a video surfaced of a physical altercation with another ex-girlfriend. The video captured a heated argument between Akademiks and his partner after recording an episode of The Fresh and Fit Podcast.
During the altercation, Akademiks can be seen shouting aggressively at his girlfriend while holding a Louis Vuitton bag that appears to belong to her. The argument escalated, with Akademiks shoving his girlfriend against the wall.
The situation intensified further when a scuffle broke out, involving another woman and security guards stepping in to separate the parties.
