AK denied being abusive to her and claimed Nellie was suicidal and she had tried to commit suicide multiple times. He said moments before she took her fatal fall, they had an argument, and he decided to book himself another room in hopes the situation would calm down.

"I told myself it would be best if I remove myself from the situation, and I gathered my belongings and booked myself into another room, hoping things would calm down. It got worse, she took off her ring and threw it at me. I came back to the room because I had taken her phone. Things took a turn for the worse where Anele kind of threatened to kill herself, jump off the balcony... she didn't say it in those words though." he said.

AKA said he was in a bathroom trying to call hotel security when Anele cut her life short. “When I came out of the bathroom she wasn’t in the room. I look around the room and she’s not there then I go to the balcony and look over the balcony and down to the street and that’s where she was,” said AKA.
