The Christy Martin saga continues to grow stranger and more sordid. This much we know:
Now, according to a sheriff's report obtained by TMZ, Martin has stated the reason why her husband went off in the first place: she told James she was leaving him for a woman named Sherry.
In Martin's official statement, she told police she had been staying in a hotel during the days leading up to this violent incident. Allegedly, James was already aware his wife was having an affair and had threatened to release "incriminating videos of her over YouTube" in light of this news.
When Christy told James she was officially leaving him for Sherry, he took out a knife and and a black handgun that he kept in the house.
It's unclear how Christy got away from her attacker, but she made it outside, flagged down a car and arrived at the hospital in time to share her side of the story with authorities.
