Travis Browne accused of domestic violence after photos surface on Instagram
UFC heavyweight Travis Browne was accused of domestic violence last night after an ex-girlfriend posted pictures of her bruises on Instagram.
The photos, assembled in a collage, were posted by Instagram user JennaReneeFit. The account is owned by Jenna Renee Webb, a personal trainer and fitness model. In October of 2014, Webb also posted a photo annoucing her engagement to Browne, but that post has since been deleted.
Webb claims in the description that walking away from a life of abuse was "probably one of the hardest decisions" she’s ever made. When asked by multiple commenters if it was Browne she was referring to, she replied, "yes, it was Travis."
The photos show multiple bruises on Webb’s arms and legs, and slight markings on her face.
