The Daily Mail is reporting that Bray Wyatt and wife Samantha Rotunda are getting divorced because of Wyatt’s alleged relationship with WWE ring announcer JoJo Offerman. According to the report, Wyatt’s wife is claiming that she filed because of adulterous behavior. Samantha and Bray are college sweethearts and have been married for five years.
It’s worth nothing that JoJo, 23, is not named in the court documents but had been identified by the lawyer of Wyatt’s wife and the Daily Mail reports that Wyatt and JoJo have managed to keep their relationship a secret until now.
Samantha Rotunda’s lawyer Ray Rafool told the Daily Mail that he was able to get phone records to show that Wyatt had been in “continuous contact” with JoJo. The divorce papers say that Wyatt walked out on her and their two daughters in March. The daughters are age 6 and 4.
In response to the story, Bray Wyatt’s attorney was quoted as saying, “I do represent Mr. Rotunda in his dissolution of marriage case in Hernando County, Florida.” He continued, “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.” As of this writing, there have been no public statements from Wyatt himself or JoJo Offerman.
Wyatt’s attorney has filed a counter-petition for divorce with an injunction to force his wife to keep quiet and claims that she made “defamatory statements about the husband to several people in the community in an effort to ruin his reputation.” He is accusing her of spreading lies on social media in an effort to damage his business ventures in the entertainment industry.
Samantha responded: “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.” Her statement continues “…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.”
Samantha accuses Wyatt of “adultery and misdeeds” and she is asking the judge to award her their marital home. She is also asking for child support and alimony and wants custody of the kids for the majority of the time.
