Arrested on the night of Friday, 16, he went through a custody hearing and was imprisoned by the courts; Iverson is investigated in two investigations
Iverson de Souza Araújo, the DJ Ivis, was transferred late this Friday, 16, from the Police Station, in the center of strength, to the Sister Imelda Lima Pontes Prison, in the Metropolitan Region of the capital of Ceará. The singer went through a custody hearing shortly after being arrested and the courts decided to keep the prison. He is responsible for assaults against his ex-wife Pâmella Gomes de Holanda, recorded on video and posted on social networks. Two inquiries for assaults were opened and information from the artist’s defense reveals that Ivis would be emotionally shaken and feeding like all the other prisoners. His lawyer, André Quezado, also said he would ask for the singer’s preventive detention to be converted into precautionary measures, such as the use of electronic ankle bracelets.
The case gained repercussion this week after Pamella shared videos on a social network in which she appears being slapped, punched and kicked by the artist. The images were recorded at the then couple’s residence. In one of them, the victim is even raped alongside her nine-month-old daughter Mel. The DJ also shared videos with the woman trying to assault him and an image from a police report made in March. To police, he said he had argued with her and that he was “embarrassed” and “afraid of his wife’s unbalanced behavior”. Ivis confessed to the attacks, but stated that he went through blackmail and threats. “Many people will judge me, but I couldn’t stand it anymore, I received blackmail, a death threat with my daughter. Nobody knows what this is what I went through.” Pamella went to the police on July 3 and filed a police report for assault. The following day, the Public Ministry requested a protective measure for the woman and daughter, which was granted by the Court of Justice of Ceará.
