Fitness trainer Jivesh Shetty denied the charges; lawyer says wife filed a case as she did not get along with Shetty’s mother.
Popular fitness trainer and former Mr India, Jivesh Shetty has been accused of domestic violence by his wife Avanti, who claims that he tried to assault her when she objected to his spending huge sums of money on ‘banned steroids and body supplements’. Avanti, 30, has also accused him of shirking his responsibilities as a father by not paying their 5-year-old daughter’s school fees.
In a case filed before a metropolitan magistrate in Girgaum, Avanti has further accused her 37-year-old husband of using his build to intimidate her. Saying that their daughter stands to lose a year as Shetty has ‘refused’ to pay her school fee, she has sought Rs 1 crore in damages and Rs 45,000 and Rs 40,000 as maintenance for her daughter and herself. She has also named his mother in the case filed under Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act of 2005, claiming that she would verbally abuse and taunt her.
