James Brown has filed for an annulment of his marriage to wife Tomi Rae as a police report revealed more about the altercation that led to the soul legend being arrested on domestic violence charges last week.
The police report alleges that the 70 year old singer pushed Mrs Brown to the floor during an argument at the couple’s South Carolina home. He then threatened to kill her while holding a chair over her. Reports say Tomi Rae had scratches and bruises on her right arm and hip when she arrived at Augusta hospital later that day.
Brown is denying the domestic violence allegations, and is filing for annulment on the grounds that Tomi Rae never divorced a previous husband. Brown’s lawyer, Jim Huff, told reporters that Tomi Rae never sought a divorce from Javed Ahmed, a man she had married in Houston in Feb 1997.
