– Rhaka Khan gave the following statement to Gerweck.net after it was reported that she was on El Passo’s most wanted fugitives list:
My ex-husbsnd who is on probation for beating me unconscious made 100 false police reports against me. We have been in a domestic violence shelter after i caught him stalking again. Listen to the recording of me being beaten unconscious. This will backfire on him when the truth gets out. Listen to the recording, publish it for me please. That is the person who filed 100 false police reports against me. My abusive ex husband who is on probation for assaulting me.
