Five Finger Death Punch Slam Ivan Moody Domestic Abuse Report
Kovac says in his statement that the woman's claims of domestic violence were dismissed and also says that Moody is not actually married to the woman that reportedly made the claims.
TeamRock reports that "The allegations surfaced... with celebrity gossip site TMZ claiming a woman called Holly Smith had filed for divorce, saying Moody had cheated on her and reacted violently when she confronted him. TMZ reported Smith's claims that Moody had choked her using a jiu-jitsu technique before punching her."
The manager had the following to say, "Holly Smith has made claims of domestic violence that were dismissed on July 14th, 2015. She has also claimed that she was married to Ivan Moody, which Ivan denies.
"A search of county clerk records in the location she claims to have gotten married showed no marriage certificate. Ms. Smith has also made statements alleging that Moody is the father of her child which has also been shown to be untrue.
"We look forward to proving that there are no grounds for divorce in this case and that Ms Smith is not a credible source of information. Nobody in Five Finger Death Punch condones domestic violence or abuse of any kind. The media attention is rife with false allegations and we hope that the media will start to follow the facts so that Ivan can move on.
"Given the shameless attempt to become a media star with these false allegations, I think Five Finger Death Punch can take this 15 minutes of fame and use the situation to promote their 6th album (GOT YOUR SIX, due out 9/4) and US tour (with Papa Roach, also starting on 9/4) as well. Early projections show the album looks to debut at #1 - we want to thank Ms Smith and TMZ for all their help!"
