UFC Flyweight Andrea Lee Releases Statement On Husband’s Alleged Domestic Violence
Earlier this month news emerged that UFC flyweight contender Andrea Lee assaulted by her husband and coach Donny Aaron. Lee’s roommate Andy Nguyen was the first one to speak about details concerning the incident. A police warrant since has been issued, and Aaron charged with one count of Domestic Battery and one count of False Imprisonment by Shreveport (La.) Police Department earlier this week.
Lee releases the first statement after being accused by husband via social media in which she asks for privacy, as she works toward the resolutions and closure.
“I want to thank everyone for their support and kind words over the past week. Every post, tweet, comment does not go unnoticed. My family and I are handling this situation to the best of our ability, as this is a very sensitive issue and one that as a public figure I wish was not taking place in a public forum, I respectfully ask that everyone respects our privacy at this time as we work toward resolutions and closure. I look forward to returning to the Octagon and resuming my winning ways in the near future. Competing has always been a sanctuary for me and brings great joy to my life.”
As of this writing, it’s unclear if Aaron has turned himself to police. On Monday, Shreveport PD said in a press release that Donald Aaron is believed to be in Georgia. Police opened up the hotline if anyone knows of his whereabouts call the investigators at 318-673-6955.
Lee is 9-2 in MMA, and coming off a decision win over Veronica Macedo at UFC Fight Night 129 back in May and winning “Fight of the Night” in the process.
