• Former tennis champion Jennifer Capriati faces jail over alleged assault on ex-boyfriend
• Accusations that Capriati also stalked Ivan Brennan
Capriati, 36, had reportedly been stalking Ivan Brennan, 28. According to local police, Capriati ‘screamed’ at Brennan before punching him four times as he was working out at a gym in North Palm Beach, Florida.
Capriati allegedly had to be physically separated from Brennan, who locked himself in the gym changing rooms and called the police.
Capriati has denied the allegations in a statement released by her publicist.
Natalie Mikolich said: “The current facts being circulated by Mr Brannan are an over-exaggeration and the police report is one-sided in Mr Brannan’s favour since they failed to get Ms Capriati’s side of the story”.
Capriati won three grand slam titles and a gold medal at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.
