Jeff Withey's Ex-Fiancee Files Police Report Alleging Domestic Violence

Apr 20, 2017 1:34 PM

Jeff Withey has been accused of domestic violence according to a police report filed by his former fiancee Kennedy Summers.

Law enforcement sources confirm the report was filed in Manhattan Beach on Tuesday and references multiple alleged incidents most notably one in 2016. 

Withey got engaged last year before breaking up in October.

The Utah Jazz are playing the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the playoffs.

"Given the ongoing circumstances, our client now needs to protect herself and come forward about everything so this doesn't happen to her or others in the future," said Zack Teperman, who is represents Summers.

Withey's attorney responded with a statement.

“These salacious and patently false allegations appear to be nothing more than a vicious and calculated attempt by an angry former girlfriend to damage Mr. Withey’s good reputation," said Alan Jackson. "It is no coincidence that these fabricated claims conveniently come during the middle of the NBA playoffs, or that TMZ and the police department were notified on the same day. There is no truth to the accusations, and when the facts come to light we are confident that the falsity of the claims, and the true motivations of the person behind them, will be exposed.”
