Who is Kylie Strickland?
This is not the first time, that the TikToker has made headlines. She gained major media coverage last year for being a victim of domestic violence. This incident took place on April 11, 2021 when her then-boyfriend Cody Weems broke into her home and physically assaulted her as he suspected her of having a relationship with another man who was present in the house at that time. Although the man managed to escape, Cody purportedly showed his rage towards Kylie, who also happened to be pregnant at that time.
She claimed that when she told him about the news of her pregnancy, he started stomping on her stomach, according to LaGrange Daily News. Weems was later arrested and charged with aggravated sexual battery, aggravated battery on a child, kidnapping, and burglary.
