Gervonta Davis’ accuser now says that boxer ‘did not harm me’
The woman who said Gervonta Davis struck her Tuesday in Parkland, Florida, said Friday that Davis did not assault her.
The woman called 911 after accusing the lightweight contender of hitting her in the face amid an argument, after which he was arrested, jailed and then released.
On Friday, she wrote on Instagram that Davis ‘did not harm me or our daughter.’
The woman, whose identity was confirmed to ESPN by her attorney, wrote on her Instagram account: ‘These past days have been hurtful, and extremely exhausting for all parties involved. I pride myself on being extremely private; this situation was the last thing I wanted to be made public. The state of our relationship has been in a fragile space and Gervonta and I were both at fault for the argument.
‘While the emotions were running high I made an unnecessary call to law enforcement in an intense moment while I was frantic. Gervonta did not harm me or our daughter. Today, we have sought the help necessary to move forward with our lives. I am confident that we will succeed within our coparenting dynamic with the counseling provided to us.’
Davis denied the allegations.
‘I NEVER PUT MY HANDS ON MY CHILD MOTHER NOR MY … DAUGHTER … IM NOT A MONSTER,’ he wrote on Instagram.
He also seemed to say in the post that the incident was an attempt by his accuser to get money out of him.
Davis was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence after allegedly slapping the woman on the right side of her face by what was described in a police report as a ‘closed hand,’ which caused an abrasion in her upper lip.
The police report indicated that he ‘did actually and intentionally touch and strike (the woman) against her will (and) did intentionally cause bodily harm to her.’
Davis is scheduled to face Hector Luis Garcia in a 135-pound pay-per-view bout Jan. 7 in Washington, DC.
The 28-year-old also has agreed to meet fellow social media star Ryan Garcia next year.
Davis is due in court on Feb. 16 for an alleged hit-and-run accident on Nov. 5, 2020 in his hometown of Baltimore. Four people were injured in the crash.
