This is certainly a strange one.
Once the number one women’s tennis player in the world, Jennifer Capriati has apparently fallen on tough times. Or desperate ones, at least. Capriati has been charged with stalking and battery of her ex-boyfriend, who is eight years her junior, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
I’m not sure what to make of all of this, but at the very least this is extremely embarrassing for her. Her thirst-level has been exposed to the world.
Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati has been ordered to appear in a Palm Beach County court to answer allegations she sent hundreds of texts to an ex-boyfriend and then punched him four times while he was working out.
The former world No. 1 tennis player was charged with misdemeanor battery and stalking by the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office Tuesday, according to court records.
Capriati, who lives on Singer Island, was sent a summons to appear in county court in Palm Beach Gardens at 9:30 a.m. on April 17.
Prosecutors filed the charges after a series of incidents in which an angry Capriati confronted ex-boyfriend Ivan Dwight Brannan, 28, after they broke up in February 2012.
In addition to the alleged battery, Capriati also sent 283 texts to Brannan between Dec. 25, 2012 and Jan. 8, police said.
