Earlier this month, a report detailing court filings where Bad Wolves frontman Tommy Vext was accused by his former girlfriend, fitness model and personal trainer Whitney Johns, of assault. Vext previously released a public statement saying the accusations were not true, calling the case an extortion attempt. An LA court disagreed with his assessment and granted Johns a two-year domestic violence restraining order against Vext (né Cummings).

MetalSucks reports the trial lasted five days and was overseen by Judge Joshua D. Wayser. Johns' lawyer noted to MetalSucks that the arguments made by Vext's attorney  “sent us not back decades but centuries in their inappropriate and unacceptable attitudes towards victims of domestic abuse.”

Johns accused Vext of four different instances of assault, including being struck in the face leading to bleeding, hair pulling and dragging, and being put in a chokehold that almost knocked her out. MetalSucks writes that the court filing includes "time-stamped photographs of Johns’ injuries" as well as threatening emails from Vext.
