On Growing Up Hip Hop tonight, Mary J. Blige’s stepdaughter Briana Latrise talks about the domestic abuse incident which left her battered and bruised earlier this year.

The shocking incident came to light in July when Briana posted horrific images on Instagram of her swollen face after the attack.

She said: “Great another scar from another n***a beating up on me. I sure know how to pick them.”

And tonight the aftermath of the incident unfolds as she talks about it, saying: “I just have bad taste in men. I just really don’t know how to pick them, clearly.”

Asked if it was the first time it had happened, she said: “No.” Asked to clarify if she meant it wasn’t the first time with the boyfriend who did it, she said: “Yeah.”

Questioned as to whether the first time it happened had made her want to walk away, she said: “Well, it did…”

With her face visibly bruised, she then breaks into tears and says: “I’m sorry…I’m sorry.”

Briana is the daughter of label executive Martin “Kendu” Isaacs, who has been married to Mary J. Blige for 13 years. The pair are currently going through a divorce.

Growing Up Hip Hop airs Thursdays at 9/8c on WE tv.
