Jeff Withey Accused Of Domestic Violence

APRIL 21, 8:10am: Withey’s attorney, Alan Jackson, has issued a statement calling the allegations against his client “salacious and patently false,” suggesting that it’s not a coincidence that the accusation came during the playoffs (Twitter link via HoopsHype). Jackson added that he’s confident the “falsity of the claims… will be exposed.”

APRIL 20, 4:06pm: Jeff Withey‘s former fiancee, Kennedy Summers, has filed a police report accusing him of domestic violence, according to TMZ Sports.  Sources tell the publication that the charges, which were filed in California on Tuesday, reference multiple incidents, though one 2016 incident is law enforcement’s focus.

Summers filed the police report this week because the Jazz are traveling to Los Angeles, where she lives, and she’s concerned for her safety, sources tell TMZ. “Given the ongoing circumstances, our client now needs to protect herself and come forward about everything so this doesn’t happen to her or others in the future,” Summers’ lawyers contends. The publication reached out to Withey, but received no response. The 27-year-old has seen extra playing time

The 27-year-old center has seen playing time this postseason with Rudy Gobert sidelined. In 18 minutes over Utah’s first two playoff games, he scored five points on four shot attempts. He also pulled down four rebounds.

  1. I deplore abuse. I’m also not convinced when the abused come forward well after the fact.

      Yeah I’m not saying Withey is innocent for sure, but former fiancée may be important here. Maybe he did something and that’s why they split, or maybe they had a clean split and she’s looking to stir the pot. Only time will tell.

    I just don’t think he did it. It is like she is mad that she didn’t end up marrying someone famous so she is trying to ruin his career. And come on she fears for her safety. I think She would be the last thing on Jeff’s mind(if she didn’t make these claims) and he would be focused on trying to replace Gobert and help his team advance to the next round. I think that is why she made these claims. I look at it like as someone trying to get fame(and money) from someone while their popularity is at an all time high. I bet that if Gobert never got hurt she would not have made these claims. I see this ending with her looking like a fool and getting proved wrong. But who knows what actually happened and I don’t approve of any form of DV and if this actually happened I feel sorry for the victim and lose all respect I had for Jeff. But just going off the time and deco stances that this was reported and how it supposedly happened a while ago I have serious doubts about these claims. If I was a victim of DV I would report it pretty soon after and not wait a year to report it
