Bad Wolves frontman Tommy Vext has made an official statement regarding the domestic violence claims brought against him by his ex-girlfriend, model and personal trainer Whitney Johns.
On Wednesday, a representative for Vext emailed Metal Sucks, saying:
“The allegations made against me by my former girlfriend are not true. Given the ongoing civil dispute between us, I am not at liberty to say any more at this time. I look forward to resolving this matter in court.”
Earlier in the day, Vext informally addressed the allegations on Twitter. After a fan asked him “So is this true or what?” about the story, he responded, “Fake AF News.” Responding to another fan tweet, he wrote, “Not even worth addressing this fake news bs.”
Metal Sucks first broke the story on Tuesday after obtaining documents from the Superior Court of California on the matter. According to the documents, Vext is accused of assaulting Johns multiple times both during their relationship and after it had ended. Johns’ claims include Vext hitting her in the face with enough force to draw blood, dragging her by the hair and choking her until she almost lost consciousness.
A domestic violence restraining order against Vext was partially granted back in April, mandating that the singer refrain from contacting Johns and stay 100 yards away from her at all times. It has since been extended multiple times due to both the pandemic and requests from Vext’s lawyer. The final hearing on the matter took place on November 17.
The case is still ongoing, with Vext’s latest court appearance having taken place on Wednesday.
