The Daily Mail newspaper based in the United Kingdom is reporting that Bray Wyatt’s wife Samantha Rotunda has filed for divorce in Florida accusing her husband of adultery.
In a counter-petition filed in Hernando County, Wyatt has requested an injunction to force his wife to keep quiet about the split and accused her of making “defamatory statements about the husband to several people in the community in an effort to ruin his reputation.”
Wyatt is being accused of having an affair with 23-year-old Raw ring announcer Jojo Offerman. Wyatt’s affair with Jojo has been kept a secret but his wife’s high-profile Miami attorney Ray Rafool told the Daily Mail that he obtained phone records showing that Wyatt is maintaining “continuous contact” with Jojo. Rafool was the divorce attorney of Linda Hogan in the ugly court battle against her ex-husband Hulk Hogan.
“Samantha is saddened by the divorce as she and the husband have been together since college,” said Rafool. “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.”
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, 6 and 4. She is now asking the judge to award her their marital home as well as child support and alimony. She also wants custody of the girls for a majority of the time.
Jim Knox, Bray Wyatt’s attorney, confirmed with the Daily Mail that he is taking care of the dissolution of marriage case on behalf of his client. “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,” he said. Attorney Paul Duron considers it a favorable resolution, too.
