UFC Octagon Girl Brittney Palmer is alleged to have been the victim of attempted murder at the hands of her husband, Aaron Zalewski, TMZ Reports.
The incident is believed to have occured at the couple’s home in Los Angeles on June 11th, with an argument breaking out after Zalewski overheard an agent calling Palmer, “Babe” over the phone.
Zalewski is alleged to have attempted to wrestle the phone from her hands, while the Octagon girl was attempting to record the argument. He then threw her, resulting in Palmer hitting her head on a bed post according to an LAPD report.
Palmer’s husband is then alleged to have told her to, “pack your f*cking bags and go”, but then wouldn’t let her leave and instead threw her again before pinning her down with a knee on her back. At this point Palmer said she struggled to breathe for two minutes while she was pinned down against the bed.
Bizarrely, Palmer also claimed to the LAPD that Zalewski scratched his own arms and shouted, “Why are you making me do this? I just wanted you to love me.”
Palmer finally managed to get out of the house at around 1.25am in the morning and immediately called the police who promptly arrested Zalewski for attempted murder, spousal battery and criminal threats. He’s since been released on $1 million bail.
The 28 year-old married Zalewski, a wealthy finance expert, in May of last year. Previously she had been romantically involved with UFC star Donald Cerrone.
Palmer has been a well known face among MMA fans for many years, having initially been a ring girl with the WEC promotion before moving over to the UFC. Palmer has since appeared on the cover of Playboy magazine and has been rated in both Maxim and FHM’s top 100 lists.
