Kris Smith Opens Up About Experience With Domestic Violence
Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence.
We were given a stark reminder of that fact in last night's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here episode.
Kris Smith opened up about a past relationship from when he was around 25 years old that ended in a physical altercation.
“I was going through that stage where I was like, you know what, your wild child days are over now, have a family, 25 is a great age,” he said.
“It didn’t last long.”
Smith allegedly met a professional kick boxer through work contacts and they became dating.
But things turned violent one day.
“She busted my nose. She busted my lip,” Smith said.
“She could throw a punch as well. I went to walk off and she booted me right up the arse and I turned around and she punched me again.”
Thankfully he had the courage to leave her and he never went back.
While the 38-year-old only faced the horror that is domestic violence once, it's one time too many.
The model is now an advocate against domestic violence and his charity while on the reality TV show is fittingly White Ribbon.
