The wife of Bray Wyatt has filed for divorce in Florida and accusing him of adultery.
According to divorce documents filed in Hernando County and obtained last week by Daily Mail Online, Wyatt, whose real name is Windham Rotunda, is being accused of cheating on Samantha Rotunda, his wife of five years.
A few days after the news broke, Samantha posted this message on Instagram describing how the situation has affected her and her two children. She claimed that her “cheating husband”‘s infidelity began a year and a half ago; potentially in late 2015.
“Its quiet, kids are napping and left alone in my thoughts I realize #ihateyou …the bubbly love, the tingles, the butterflies when you walked into a room…all gone. You made not a mistake but a year and a half in the making, life long decision, in front of the world that will forever change me and our girls lives. You were selfish; out and about with no care to who saw you two together. You hurt me, crushed me, shattered my world. YOU were my world; our world; #kingofourcastle…you lost us, our family we worked so hard to make and protect. You made a choice. I hate you for hurting us; in due time you’ll see what you’ve lost. I was loyal, faithful, and loved you for you not who you became. We found love when we had nothing and created a home, a family, a life together; you will never have that again. #lovedyouwhenyouwereanobody #ihateyou #youbrokemyheart #soulmatesnomore #youruinedus #imadeapromisetogod #asshole #stayathomemom #divorcesucks #cheatinghusband”

The woman is not named in the divorce documents but has been identified by Samantha’s lawyer as WWE ring announcer Jojo Offerman.
Until now, Wyatt and Offerman managed to keep their relationship out of the limelight. However, Samantha’s high-profile Miami lawyer, Ray Rafool, told Daily Mail Online he obtained phone records showing that Wyatt is maintaining ‘continuous contact’ with Offerman.
Jim Knox, Wyatt’s attorney, told Daily Mail Online, “I do represent Mr. Rotunda in his dissolution of marriage case in Hernando County, Florida.
“As you know, these cases involve the private lives of the participants and sometimes unpleasant disputes. I would ask that you respect the privacy of both litigants in this matter and I have no other comments to make.”
Offerman has not returned requests for comment, and Samantha referred questions to Rafool.
In his counter-petition for divorce filed in Hernando County, Wyatt requested an injunction to force his wife to keep quiet about the split.
He claims she made “defamatory statements about the husband to several people in the community in an effort to ruin his reputation.”
He also accuses her of posting lies on social media “in an effort to damage the husband’s business ventures in the entertainment industry.”
In Samantha’s response to Wyatt’s request for an injunction, she says, “It is a shame that the husband would make such false claims and attempt such media gaming. Ms. Rotunda will not only prove husband’s allegation and claims are nothing more than a media ploy and endeavor to create an offense to defend his adultery and misdeeds.
“…husband’s deceitful allegations and defamatory statements are decidedly an attempt to pull the wool over the public’s eyes when his antics and affairs become more public.”
Rafool described his client as “disappointed” with the pending divorce.
“Samantha is saddened by the divorce as she and the husband have been together since college (Troy University in Alabama),” said Rafool. “But she hopes that all may be resolved amicably and as soon as possible so that she and their daughters may move forward with their lives.”
According to Samantha’s divorce petition, she and Wyatt were married in 2012 and separated in March after Wyatt allegedly walked out on her and their two daughters.
In the divorce documents, Samantha accuses Wyatt of ‘adultery and misdeeds’ and asks the judge to award her their marital home as well as child support and alimony. She also wants custody of their daughters for a majority of the time.
