“A news site posted a video which supposedly depicts me abusing my estranged wife. This is nothing but a propaganda video. There was NO physical abuse.
“I simply took the phone from her to stop her from recording me after catching her in bed with a married man days earlier.
“I repeat there was NO physical abuse whatsoever and she had been insulting and subjecting everybody, including family members, staff and children, to PHYSICAL and VERBAL abuse the whole day. As usual, it was a nightmare.
“My words in the video are self explanatory. I urge those that watched it to listen to those words carefully.
“I told her that everyone wanted peace except for her and all she did was indulge in scandal after scandal. I have NEVER physically abused my estranged wife,”
said in the statement.
Precious has yet to speak on the alleged assault.
