The woman who claimed professional boxer Gwenta Davis beat her up in Parkland this week has now said she and her daughter were never harmed and the couple is in counseling.
In a statement released Friday through her attorney, Lindsay Lawrence Chase of Fort Lauderdale, the woman, identified as “DP” in court documents, said the couple’s relationship ” Being vulnerable all the time, fault that Gwenta and I are arguing about.”
The situation, she said, “is the last thing I want to go public.”
But the argument led her to frantically call 911 for help on Tuesday, telling the operator that Davis, 28, was trying to kill her at the Parkland boxer’s home.
The Broward Sheriff’s deputy who responded to the call wrote in an arrest affidavit that Davis allegedly “slapped the victim’s right side of the victim’s head in a closed palm motion,” causing “a slight Scratch”.
Davis was jailed Wednesday and released on $1,000 bond.
But now, under the state’s Massif law, the woman, whose name has been withheld by authorities, said she and Davis “have sought the help necessary to move our lives forward.”
“I am confident that with the counseling provided to us, we will be successful in our shared parenting journey,” the woman’s statement said.
Chase had no further comment.
Davis, who angrily denied any wrongdoing in social media posts, could not be reached for comment Friday night.
However, domestic violence charges against him remain, according to Broward County Court records.
