Holyfield's Wife Requests Restraining Order
EVANDER HOLYFIELD's wife has requested a temporary restraining order against the boxing champ after he allegedly hit her in the face.
Candi Holyfield called cops on 1 February (10) following a late-night bust-up at their Georgia home, according to legal documents obtained by RadarOnline.com.
According to Candi, the fighter's third wife, the couple began arguing after she complained the house was too cold and he accused her of being disrespectful.
She alleges Holyfield then demanded to see proof she was donating money to their church and struck her when she refused.
Her official statement reads, "He told me that I was only thinking about myself... I pulled the covers over my head and he said that I was being disrespectful. He started telling me that I needed to start putting God first in my life. He asked me if I had been tithing. He wanted me to show him the check stubs of my payments to the church. I told him I was not going to show them to him.
"He then hit me in the face, the back of my head twice and in my back... He got up and turned the light on and started looking at my face and told me he was sorry, that he knew he shouldn't have done that."
A source tells RadarOnline.com that Candi, a nurse, wants a divorce and is looking to move out.
