‘Married to Medicine’ star Dr. John Connors needed a doctor of his own after he was allegedly attacked by his wife, Jill. The Bravo reality star has been charged with assaulting her husband after he discovered she was allegedly having an affair! We’ve got the juicy details here.
The biggest drama on Bravo’s Married to Medicine happened off camera, with newest cast member Jill Connors, 38, under arrest for allegedly assaulting her husband. Not only was she reportedly cheating on Dr. John Connors, 46, but she allegedly physically attacked him in front of two of their children.
John allegedly found out that his wife of 11 years had been cheating on him this summer, when he discovered text messages between her and an unidentified male, according to the police report obtained by People magazine. On the night of Aug. 13, John stated he and Jill “started arguing about the matter in the kitchen.” He also told her “that she could not cheat on him,” and if she did, he “would take the children.”
That’s when Jill lost it big time, according to the report. Her husband told the Alpharetta, Georgia Police that “Jill immediately became violent and started striking him in the face with closed hand punches. Jill then started to tear his T-shirt, and she scratched him all over his neck and upper body with her fingernails. He had no choice but to call 911, because he was being attacked.”
After he did that, she apparently tried to fake that she was the one being assaulted.”He called 911, Jill grabbed a knife or sharp object and started to cut herself on the arm and chest. John said while she cut herself, she yelled, “He’s cutting me!” according to the police report. He then fled to another room to escape his crazed wife. When police arrived, John allegedly had red scratch marks on his chest, neck, and back, as well as a swollen lip from where Jill reportedly punched him.
Jill Admits To The Attack, Files For Divorce
For Jill’s part, she admitted to attacking her husband with the newest member of the Married to Medicine cast, telling police, “I hit him. I started it, I know.” She claims she went berserk when John claimed he’d take the children from her. But that’s already happened. John won a restraining order shortly after her arrest, according to TMZ. He was granted the couple’s home, cars and temporary custody of the pair’s three kids.
But Jill is fighting back on her own. According divorce papers she filed last week, Jill is seeking primary custody of the kids as well as spousal support and the couple’s home. She won’t have an easy task at getting full custody of the kids though. When she was arrested for the assault, she was also charged with cruelty to children. A spokesman for the Alpharetta Police told People, “There were no injuries to the children, but they witnessed what occurred, and therefore that falls under cruelty to children in the third degree.” This story is so sad.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Jill Connors should get her kids back after putting them through such an ordeal?
