Jahmene Douglas is one of the most shy acts on this years X Factor.
But he’s been trying to keep his past childhood hush hush hush as Jahmene has recently oped up about his father trying to kill him and his mother.
In a interview with The Sun the X Factor hopeful said:
‘Every day I thought, ‘I’m going to die today’.’
‘Once, because I bit my nails, he put a knife under my nail until it started bleeding. Another time he stopped me from eating for two days. I was about seven or eight.’
Eustace Douglas (his father) is now in prison and he controlled the family with such a maniacal grip both Jahmene and his mother had to change their names.
His father has four children once e attacked Jahmene’s mother with a blowtorch and drove his brother to suicide after the pressure became to much.
Eustace would often find anything he could get his hands on to beat the family he once used kitchen utensils and leather belts to abuse the family. Jahmene’s mother was abused so much by his father Jahmene could hardly recognized her after she was assaulted and tortured for three days as she was locked in the bedroom luckerly after that the police where called and that was the last time the family saw Eustace.
