Grammy winning rapper Queen Pen is calling on New York governors to implement tougher domestic violence laws in the state, after suffering at the hands of a former boyfriend last year (08).
The star, real name Lynise Walters, was badly beaten and knocked unconscious when the unnamed ex-beau broke into her home.
The man is still at large, and Queen Pen is making her voice heard by leading a rally and holding a press conference advocating stricter legislation on the topic in Brooklyn on 16 January (09).
