It hasn't been an easy week for Katy DiSanto, wife of Vektor vocalist/guitarist David DiSanto. She alleged that her husband constantly harassed and assaulted her and taped the latest incident over the weekend, where he threw her, berated her and threw a pillow at her face while she was sleeping.
Since this weekend, Katy has posted a new update. She thanked the metal community for the outpouring of support. She noted that her case is “being processed through the judicial system” and “with any luck, [the legal outcome] will involve David finally getting the professional help that I tried to help him get for years.”
Perhaps not too surprisingly, she also noted she's been getting quite a bit of hate online, receiving “critical, negative, threatening or otherwise vicious” messages in response to what she revealed this weekend, but she is not letting those comments get to her.
Here is her full statement:
“Thank you to everyone who’s been supportive throughout this. I’m truly blown away by the reaction of so many people – I’m so glad the metal community has shown me the same love that I have for it. I’ll try to get back to all of your individual comments and messages as soon as I can.
“This week alone, I’ve spent 12 hours in courthouses, with more to come. I slept on a plastic bench in a police station as the sun came up. I’ve been in front of judges and back and forth to municipal buildings all over the city. I had to watch as two police officers evicted the person I tried to build a life with from our home. This isn’t just some social media posts – it’s a real situation that’s being processed through the judicial system. With any luck, it will involve David finally getting the professional help that I tried to help him get for years.
“There’s so much more to the story that I haven’t revealed publicly. What you see on the internet is just part of this.
“To anyone who has been critical, negative, threatening or otherwise vicious to me directly – these two sentences are all the attention I’m giving you. I’m happy that you nor anyone you know has been in my situation, and I sincerely hope you never have to know what it’s like.
“Thank you again.”
