Nina Koupriianova is accusing her husband, white nationalist leader Richard Spencer, of being “physically, emotionally, verbally and financially abusive," in divorce filings, according to a new report.
BuzzFeed News reported that Koupriianova alleges that Spencer physically abused her, including instances where she was “being hit, being grabbed, being dragged around by her hair, being held down in a manner causing bruising, and being prevented from calling for help.” The filings include photos of bruises on her jaw, chest, and leg.
She also alleges he dragged her down the stairs, tried to punch her in the face while she was nine months pregnant, and held her down while she was four months pregnant, among other incidents and including in front of their two children.
Koupriianova and Spencer married in 2010. She filed for divorce in June.
Spencer denied the allegations in another court filing. “I dispute many of her assertions,” he said, adding he “denies each, every, and all allegations.”
Neither Spencer's nor Koupriianova's attorneys commented to BuzzFeed.
