Ex-tennis star Martina Hingis 'beat up husband
The husband of the former Swiss tennis champion, Martina Hingis, has accused his estranged wife and her mother of assaulting him, claiming he fled to France to escape the pair.
Thibault Hutin, a French equestrian, told the Swiss newspaper Blick that Ms Hingis and her mother, Melanie Molitor, had beaten and scratched him during a dispute at an apartment the couple once shared in the Swiss village of Feusisberg. He also accused Ms Molitor’s boyfriend of hitting him in the head with a DVD player.
“I have bruises and scratches on the neck, head and right forearm,” he was quoted as saying. “I’m really scared and asking myself, what comes next – a bullet?” Mr Hutin, 27, said he had to ask police to retrieve his passport and credit cards from the apartment, and had travelled from Switzerland to Paris where he felt “safe from them”.
Blick reported that police in the central Swiss canton of Schwyz had received a complaint against Ms Hingis, Ms Molitor and her partner Mario Widmer. Ms Hingis would not comment, while Mr Widmer referred to the allegations as “ridiculous”, Blick reported.
In July Mr Hutin claimed in Swiss media that Ms Hingis, 32, had cheated on him. The pair separated earlier this year, and are in the process of getting a divorce.
