If there is a Jennifer Capriati arrest warrant, her lawyer claims "no," reports TMZ, March 9. The 36-year-old tennis pro was reported to have allegedly beaten her ex-boyfriend. However, her lawyer says, "There is no arrest warrant for Jennifer Capriati. The case between Ms. Capriati and Mr. Ivan Brannan has not yet been assigned in Palm Beach County and has not been reviewed. The current facts being circulated by Mr. Brannan are an over exaggeration, and the police report is one-sided in Mr. Brannan’s favor since they failed to get Ms. Capriati’s side of the story."
When one reads the lawyer's statement on the woman who won two Australian Opens and one French Open, the report doesn't say that Brannan wasn't beaten. It simply claims that Brannan is guilty of an "over exaggeration" and "the police report is one-sided." What is the real story?
There may be no Capriati arrest warrant, but the woman who once ranked number one in the world has her demons. As early as 18, she was arrested for shoplifting and marijuana possession and eventually entered drug rehab. "She fought her addiction, she fought to get back into shape, and she fought her demons. And in the process she scripted one of the most remarkable comeback stories in recent sports history: three majors, the top ranking, a spot on the Federation Cup team . . . that is until her old friends showed up again," writes LZ Granderson, Senior Writer for ESPN The Magazine. Years later, Capriati allegedly overdosed on prescription drugs and supposedly suffers from anxiety about being in public.
