She explained that he used to be very aggressive and that she used to hide from him to protect herself from being harmed. 

She added that the incident has killed her confidence, and she still suffers from post-traumatic stress syndrome because of those past events. 

She said that she wanted to call the police, but she used to fear him a lot, which killed her confidence and she assumed that the police won’t help her. 

Dre denied all the allegations and said that he always cared about her personal safety and never abused her during their marriage.
