New York June 13 (TNS): The wife of WWE star Bray Wyatt has filed for divorce, claiming he walked out on her and their two daughters — ages 6 and 4 — after having an affair with a young ring announcer.
Samantha Rotunda, who was married to Wyatt for five years, filed court papers in Florida recently that outlined the wrestler’s alleged relationship with 23-year-old JoJo Offerman, as well as her divorce demands.
She is currently asking a Hernando County judge to award her their marital home, child support and alimony — along with “majority” custody of their children.
Rotunda’s lawyer, Ray Rafool, told the outlet that Wyatt, whose real name is Windham Rotunda, had left her to be with Offerman back in March and been maintaining “continuous contact” with the WWE starlet ever since.
The sultry ring announcer and backstage interviewer has amassed a huge social-media following of well over 470,000 people thanks to her skin-tight outfits and daily selfies.
She is the daughter of former Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Jose Offerman and has appeared on the E! reality show, “Total Divas.”
Photos posted on Twitter Monday just hours before “Raw” showed Offerman and Wyatt arriving at an arena together, though it was unclear if it was the one where the show was being taped.
According to the divorce documents, Rotunda and Wyatt tied the knot in 2012 and later separated in March, after the self-described “Eater of Worlds” allegedly cheated on her with Offerman.
In April, Rotunda filed for dissolution of marriage and claimed their relationship was over. Wyatt reportedly followed that up with more legal documents, accusing her of making defamatory statements about him in public “in an effort to ruin his reputation.”
The former WWE champion then asked a judge for an injunction to silence his wife, claiming she blasted him on social media and was posting lies in the attempt to “damage his business ventures in the entertainment industry,” the Mail reports.
Rotunda was said to have filed for divorce in response.
“It is a shame that the Husband would make such false claims and attempt such media gaming,” Rafool stated in the court documents.
“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,” he said. “[Wyatt’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.”
Sources told Pro Wrestling Sheet that Rotunda at first didn’t want to bring up Wyatt’s alleged affair in court documents, but she apparently changed her mind after the wrestler filed for the injunction to keep her quiet.
“Samantha is saddened by the divorce as she and the husband have been together since college (Troy University in Alabama),” Rafool told the Mail. “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.”
Wyatt, formerly known as Husky Harris, has been wrestling under his current persona for several years now after making the jump from NXT to WWE. He has locked up with some of the industry’s biggest names, including John Cena, Randy Orton and the Undertaker
