Former Grand Slam tennis champion Jennifer Capriati is fighting back against accusations that she got into a fight with her ex-boyfriend Ivan Brannan.
Capriati and Brannan allegedly got into an altercation at the Oxygen Health & Fitness Gym in North Palm Beach, Fla., one that may have turned violent.
Brannan states that the world’s former top-ranked player stalked and punched him in the chest with her fist before a yoga instructor called the cops.
According to initial reports, Capriati fled the scene before the police arrived, but there is a warrant out for her arrest. Her camp denies this is true.
A lawyer for Capriati said in a statement:
“There is no arrest warrant for Jennifer Capriati. The case between Ms. Capriati and Mr. Ivan Brannan has not yet been assigned in Palm Beach County and has not been reviewed.”
“The current facts being circulated by Mr. Brannan are an over exaggeration and the police report is one-sided in Mr. Brannan’s favor since they failed to get Ms. Capriati’s side of the story.”
Jennifer Capriati, 36, was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame last July, but has run into occasional personal problems over the years.
Four months after receiving that honor, Brannan sought a restraining order against her, claiming she called his office more than 100 times in a single day.
