WWE star Bray Wyatt's wife Samantha Rotunda filed for divorce from her estranged husband in Florida, accusing him of adultery. Rotunda, who was married to Wyatt for five years, filed court papers in Hernando County on Monday.
In the court documents, Rotunda has demanded their marital home, child support, and alimony — along with “majority” custody of their children, according to reports. While the court documents did not name Wyatt's alleged girlfriend, reports claimed that the woman is WWE ring announcer Jojo Offerman.
Rotunda's high-profile Miami lawyer, Ray Rafool, told Daily Mail he obtained phone records showing that Wyatt is maintaining "continuous contact" with Offerman.
"Samantha is saddened by the divorce as she and the husband have been together since college," Rafool said. "But she hopes that all may be resolved amicably and as soon as possible so that she and their daughters may move forward with their lives."
Meanwhile, Jim Knox who is representing Wyatt, told Daily Mail: "I do represent Mr. Rotunda in his dissolution of marriage case in Hernando County, Florida. As you know, these cases involve the private lives of the participants and sometimes unpleasant disputes. I would ask that you respect the privacy of both litigants in this matter and I have no other comments to make."
Wyatt has filed a counter-petition for divorce, requesting an injunction to force his wife to keep quiet about the split.
He claims she made "defamatory statements about the husband to several people in the community in an effort to ruin his reputation."
Rotunda responded to Wyatt's request for an injunction, via a statement from her attorney saying: "It is a shame that the Husband would make such false claims and attempt such media gaming. Ms. Rotunda will not only prove 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's deceitful allegations and defamatory statements are decidedly an attempt to pull the wool over the public's eyes when his antics and affairs become more public."
According to Samantha's divorce petition, she and Wyatt were married in 2012 and separated in March after Wyatt allegedly walked out on her and their two daughters, aged 6 and 4.
Rotunda was not initially planning on mentioning the adultery, but she changed her mind when Wyatt started accusing her of lying.
“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,” Pro Wrestling Sheet reported, citing sources.
