Wilder’s Fiancée Granted A Restraining Order For Domestic Abuse

Telli Swift, Deontay Wilder’s fiancée, has a restraining order against the boxer. 

According to the order, which was granted two days after Wilder’s defeat to Zhilei Zhang, the boxer has been accused of domestic abuse. Swift alleges the abuse has been ongoing for six years. This includes choking her “at least five times,” spitting and shoving her face into a pillow, almost making her suffocate.

Wilder is also accused of accessing Swift’s laptops without her consent, sending ‘disturbing’ messages to her contacts. Additional allegations include Wilder threatening to destroy her property. Swift further states she was evicted from their home in Atlanta, as she lives in their LA home currently with their 6-year-old daughter.

The order claims Swifts has fear of violence once Wilder returns from Saudi Arabia. The surveillance system at their LA home is allegedly being used by Wilder for spying. According to the order, Wilder has to be at least 100 yards away from Swift and their daughter. They will appear before a judge once the order expires on June 25. Wilder has yet to respond to the allegations, but Swift has spoken out. 

“I believe Deontay is capable of being physically violent towards me upon his return in June because he has expressed that he is furious with me since April and has been physically abusive with me in the past,” Swift stated
