WWE star Paige's fiancé Alberto Del Rio is reported to be under investigation following an alleged incident of domestic violence at the Orlando airport on Sunday, 10 July. An audio clip of the incident has now been released by TMZ, with a witness claiming that Paige was with Alberto on the day.
However, amid the allegations against the wrestler – who is signed to Impact Wrestling as Alberto El Patron – Paige took to Twitter to explain her side of the story. Not only did she deny reports of any physical abuse, but also urged her fans to give them privacy.
"WE got the cops involved. I'm crying cuz I found out bad fam news & a lady tries take a pic. She gets angry throws a drink on @PrideOfMexico," the 24-year-old English wrestler explained adding, "Please leave us alone. That's it."
The audio clip that revealed a female companion – believed to be Paige – screaming at Alberto and asking him to leave her alone was released by TMZ just hours after her response on Twitter.
"Stay out of my life. Leave me the f**k alone," the wrestler, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, allegedly yells out in the audio.
An eyewitness is said to have recorded the alleged altercation between the couple, in which an upset Alberto says, "Call the cops. Let's do it. Get the cops."
He reiterates some time later, "I'm pressing charges against you."
While the matter is currently under investigation, no arrests have been made.
"There was an incident at Orlando International Airport at about 3 p.m. Sunday involving Jose Rodriguez. The reported incident was a domestic violence battery, and it is still under investigation. No arrests have been made as of this time, but the case remains open. That is all the information we have for release at this time," the Orlando Police Department said in a statement.
