Niecy Nash Opens Up About When Her Mom Was Shot By Her Boyfriend
Niecy Nash is opening up in a very deep way on TVOne’s Uncensored.
In the episode, she discussed a terrifying incident she witnessed as a kid when her mother’s then-boyfriend shot her, before turning the gun on himself.
Thankfully, her mom survived.
“When I was 15, I saw my mother get shot,” she said in the clip. “Her boyfriend was very abusive, and he shot my mother with a sawed-off, double-barreled shotgun in front of her children, Easter Sunday morning, shot her down like a dog in the street.”
“I heard him say, ‘I did something I didn’t want to do. I shot Margaret,’” Niecy said, adding that she hid underneath her mom’s bed during the incident. “He said, ‘God forgive me,’ boom!”’
“I heard him fall on the hardwood, and then I heard him drag [himself] right in front of the room that I was hiding in,” she said.
“He stopped. I could hear my mother wailing in the backyard, ‘Help me! Jesus, help me!’ to the top of her throat… I was under that bed, and I was shaking, I have never been that scared in my life.”
Wow. It just goes to show us that we never truly know someone’s backstory, especially Hollywood celebrities.
Thank you Niecy for sharing your story.
