Despite the claims of abuse, the reality star says he was the victim in the attack.
“In defending myself, she obtained some bruises and swelling on her face,” he said in a statement.
“I did not strike her.”
He continued, “I was raised to protect women, and if not provoked and feeling I was in danger, I would never have defended myself in this manner."
