Welp this story just continues to get worse. Last week news broke of Matt Hughes getting hit with a restraining order from his wife and his brother Mark.
Today (Mar. 6) new information has come to light about the alleged domestic allegations from Hughes’ wife Audra Hughes. The details are graphic, ugly, and point to more than one witness of the abuse.
Just not pleasant stuff all around.
According to documents obtained by our friends over at MMA Junkie, two of the alleged incidents involved Hughes texting or talking to other women.
“She said he choked her after she wouldn’t give him the keys to his truck.
“I was in the shower and he opened the shower and choked me,” she wrote. “Then he asked for the code to his gun vault and I said, ‘You just choked me. Do you think I’m going to give you the code?’
“He opened the shower door again and started choking me and he smashed my head against the shower and said, ‘This is what choking is!’”
The second alleged encounter occurred between Hughes, his estranged wife, and her stepfather Alan.
“Audra Hughes alleges two other incidents of abuse. She wrote that in July 2018, he told her, “I’m going to (expletive) shoot you!” after she took his cell phone for texting with other women.”
Five months later an third incident occurred.
“He hit me,” she wrote. “(My stepfather Alan) said, ‘Don’t lay another finger on her.’ He looked at Alan and grabbed my hand and tried to pull me closer to him. Alan told him to get his phone and leave. Alan and I followed him outside to make sure he didn’t do anything to our vehicles.”
These docs obtained by Junkie don’t include any of Matt Hughes’ altercations with his nephew or his brother.
Hughes filed for divorce back in February then was hit with a restraining order that required him to stay 500 feet away from his wife and two daughters five days later.
Still shocked. Still concerned for the mental health of Hughes and the well being of those around him/those around him.
Scary stuff all around and hopefully Matt Hughes is able to get the help he needs, before another incident occurs.
