The ex-girlfriend of the now deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev claims that he tried to “brainwash” her into being Muslim. She also alleges that he wanted her to “hate America.”
Nadine Ascencao, 24 spoke with “The Sun” regarding her relationship with Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Ascencao contends that she was dating Tsarnaev while he was romantically involved in Katherine Russell.
Katherine Russell is the “all-American” girl that Tamerlan eventually married according to Ascencao. Nadine Ascencao stated that she began dating Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2006 when she was still a minor.
Ascencao revealed, “Tamerlan had taken my virginity and said he loved me because I was pure and hadn’t been with any other guys. I went to his mosque a couple of times and even looked into converting to make him happy.”
“I thought, ‘This is crazy’ but I still did it for him. I was in love and scared he’d leave me if I didn’t do what he said. Looking back I had a lucky escape.”
Nadine went on to describe how volatile Tamerlan could be during their relationship. “One minute he’s this funny, normal guy who liked boxing and having fun.”
“The next he is praying four times a day, watching Islamic videos and talking insane nonsense. He became extremely religious and tried to brainwash me to follow Islam.”
“Tamerlan said I couldn’t be with him unless I became a Muslim. He wanted me to hate America like he did.”
Tamerlan Tsarnaev would refuse to let Nadine watch television or listen to music. She goes on to say that he insisted that she cover herself up and wear a hijab.
Nadine Ascencao stated that her relationship with Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev ended when he slapped her one night. She explained that she called the police which led to Tamerlan spending the night in jail.
She claims that even though she dropped the charges, he dumped her and moved in with Katherine Russell whom Nadine alleges he was secretly dating.
