As the 38-year-old continued her shocking story, she said her ex’s parents witnessed the violence themselves and did nothing to stop it:

“I remember his parents were watching it and didn’t do anything. And it wasn’t like he was hitting me. He was whipping me.”

Disgusting. How could they not do something?! Ch-ch-check out the full preview (below):
