But things are so much different with her second husband David “Dave” Bellinger who is the father of the couple’s young daughter.
“My body couldn’t take it. My mind couldn’t take it. I was very scared, so obviously I snapped,” she said. “I cut off his penis because he abused me that much. That’s what happens when a man pushes a woman so far and so low.”
