Tampa Bay, Florida millionaire, 45-year-old Scott Mitchell, has released the footage of his ex-fiancee, 29-year-old Mary Hunt, brutally hitting herself after she claimed he abused her and left her with black eyes.
The video will be used as evidence during their bitter legal battle as the businessman accuses her of stealing $2.1million worth of jewellery from the safe at his home before they split. Mitchell, who is the CEO of Simply Organic, also accuses Hunt’s parents of helping her hide the haul that included 99 three-diamond necklaces, 147 gold rings and 172 loose diamonds.
Mitchell claims throughout their two-year relationship he paid for all her expenses including her mortgage, credit card and health insurance. He trusted her so much he even gave her the combination to his safe room.
Hunt countered his claims alleging he was violent towards her before he broke off the engagement. She told local newspapers: “There were so many times when I wanted to give up, but I couldn’t do it anymore and I think about how much he would have wanted this.”
His attorney Todd Foster told FOX 13: “The explanation for the black eye is now very different. There is no evidence that he ever beat her. This video now demonstrates that she is striking herself in the same area of the face and head that they allege Scott struck her.”
