Jack Johnson Says Madison Beer Actually Abused Jack Gilinsky, Too
Madison Beer‘s mom, of all people, came to the defense of Jack Gilinsky after audio footage of him verbally abusing her daughter leaked. But Tracie Beer isn’t the only one who stepped up to try to get people off the former Vine star’s back — his best friend and bandmate, Jack Johnson, made an entire video spilling “the truth” about what really went down in the Jadison relationship.
The 21-year-old uploaded a quick vid to YouTube in which he says the couple often fought during their 3-year romance, but the arguments have “never been a one-sided thing” and the recording was “the first time [he] heard Madison bite her tongue in an argument.” He clarified, “What my man G said was not cool; you cannot be saying sh*it like that to your significant other in any circumstances,” but he needed to be the voice of his BFF.
He explained further, “This toxic relationship was fully mutual and her trying to act like some angel, just like some perfect pure angel that helped Gilinsky out of this dark spot in his life, I’m just not gonna let that fly, ’cause that’s just not true. I’ve heard Madison call Jack things and just say things about people in general that would undoubtedly put her in this exact position right now.”
The rapper also provided text messages between the 18-year-old and a group of fans that allegedly prove she was the one who provided the audio of the altercation to the @hackedmadison Twitter account AND actually wrote some of the text that was posted.

7 female stars who spoke out about being in an abusive relationship:
Disney Channel star Debby Ryan seemed to have it all: A hit show, a budding music career and thousands of adoring fans. But, like many others, she was facing demons behind closed doors that no one was aware of. The 22 year old revealed:
"Love is freaking hard, and fighting for a relationship is so much work and can be so beautiful, and if you’re going to fight so hard for something that does not make you stronger and better and build you up, something’s wrong…I got to a point of being grabbed, being locked out of rooms, being screamed at, having things thrown at me, cussed at, begged for forgiveness, cried to, all while trying to keep it together and justifying this relationship. And that was the point that I realized maybe there was a red flag...I’m very fortunate because I had people help me get this person out of my life, out of my house — like physically lock the door.”
The actress is now working closely with Mary Kay and Loveisrespect for the Don’t Look Away campaign where she's "raising awareness and hoping to end abuse in dating relationships, especially with young teens and young people.”
