Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed Bray Wyatt‘s wife recently filed for divorce … and even though her lawyer claims he was cheating with JoJo, the wrestler says his ex just wants to defame him.
According to court documents obtained by The Sheet, Samantha Rotunda filed for dissolution of marriage back in April and said their relationship was irretrievably broken.
The Daily Mail first reported that she wants their marital home, child support and alimony.
Bray Wyatt then filed legal docs claiming his ex-wife had been making defamatory statements about him to people in the community “in an effort to ruin his reputation.” He also claimed that she had been posting lies on social media to damage his business ventures in the entertainment industry.
Because of this, he’s asking the court for an injunction to keep her quiet.
Samantha is fighting that though. Her response states: “Ms. Rotunda will not only prove Husband’s misrepresentations and lies, but prove that Husband’s allegation and claims are nothing more than a media ploy and endeavor to create an offense to defend his adultery and misdeeds.”
“Husband is responsible for his own poor choices; Husband is responsible for their consequences.”
Rotunda’s lawyer Ray Rafool — who also represented the ex-wives of Hulk Hogan, John Cena and Alberto Del Rio — told the Daily Mail that WWE ring announcer JoJo is the woman Wyatt has allegedly been cheating with. Her name isn’t mentioned in the documents though.
Sources tell Pro Wrestling Sheet that Samantha didn’t initially plan to mention the adultery in court documents to keep the split as positive as possible for their kids, but that all changed once Bray attempted to tarnish her name in his response — causing his college sweetheart to enter her misdeed claims into court.
