In October 2020, Mayoks Michael, Camille’s manager, and brother had accused Lil Frosh of beating her up.

In the statement by Cammille against the singer, she was quoted as saying: “He consistently slapped me on the face, kicking, pushing me on other sensitive parts.”
She had claimed that she had been in a relationship — which was marred by assaults — with Lil Frosh since January 2020.
“The recent attack happened in September 2020, when he attacked me and rained blow on my head with bruises on my face. I partially lost my sight and had sleepless nights,” Camille added.
“He repeatedly boasted that since he is a well-known musician he is untouchable.”
When contacted, Muyiwa Adejobi, spokesman of the Lagos police, couldn’t immediately verify details of the case.
The new frenzy tailing Lil Frosh comes after he denied beating Camille and linked her swollen face to an allergy.
“I didn’t do it. I didn’t beat this girl up. She’s my girlfriend. She called me saying she noticed she’s having a boil at the back of her ear. I asked what it was and she said maybe it’s an allergic reaction,” the singer had explained.
“I called her once to ask how she was doing. And she said she’s not feeling fine. She said that thing is getting worse.
“She’s sending pictures to me day by day. The progression of the allergic reaction. Yes. It happened for seven days. I love her so much even after all these, I’m speaking my truth. I didn’t do it.”
