Somy Ali has shared in a series of Instagram posts about the alleged domestic violence she suffered at the hands of Salman Khan.

The former actress explained:

“This is not breaking news by any means.

“Rummage through any tabloid or a film magazine from the early 90s to 1999, and you will read articles about Somy being physically abused by Salman.

“I simply stopped talking about it the way I never brought up being a victim of childhood abuse.

“But, now there is a reason to bring it up and a reason prominent enough where it is a matter of life and death for countless children, women and men.”

On what happened between her and Salman Khan, Somy said:

“The eight years spent with him were the worst years of my entire existence.

“In addition to tonnes of affairs and flings, he would constantly belittle me by calling me ugly, stupid, and dumb. Not a day went by that he wouldn’t make me feel worthless and small.

“He would not acknowledge me as his girlfriend in public for years, and when he finally did, he would insult me in front of his friends and berate me nonstop.
