Arrest Warrant Sought For ex-Tennis Champ Jennifer Capriati

An arrest warrant is being sought today by the North Palm Beach Police Department for former women’s tennis champ Jennifer Capriati, Gossip Extra has learned.

Tennis Hall of Famer Capriati, 36, could be charged with battery and stalking in connection with a Valentine’s Day incident at one of the village’s gym. FSU golfer Ivan Brannan

According to the police report exclusively obtained by Gossip Extra, the former winner of two Australian Opens and one French Open caught up with an old boyfriend at the Oxygen Health and Fitness gym on US 1 — and things didn’t turn out too well.

She and ex-beau Ivan Brannan, a former Florida State University golfer, had an argument near the men’s locker room and Capriati allegedly hit Brannan’s chest with her fist several times.

A yoga instructor, who told cops that Capriati definitely struck Brannan, intervened — and Brannan, 28, ran into the locker room for cover and called 911.

Capriati left in her Porsche SUV but cops stopped her a few miles away. They only verified her identity and let her go while the warrant is being considered by the Palm Beach County State Attorney. Mike Edmondson, a spokesman wit the SAO, declined comment on whether a warrant would be issued.

Capriati, meanwhile, got lawyered up. Steve Sessa, the attorney, has no comment.

As Gossip Extra reported exclusively, the former No. 1 player in the world sold her Singer Island penthouse at a $600,000-loss last year and moved back to Tampa.

About the same time, Brannan asked a Palm Beach County Circuit Court judge for a restraining order against Capriati.

The judge declined the request despite the fact that police in Riviera Beach and Palm Beach Gardens investigated two incidents between the two.

In one, Capriati was accused of calling Brannan at his workplace more than 100 times in one day.

A pro at 16, Capriati’s early career made news as much for her tennis as for her arrests. She was nabbed in 1994 near Tampa in two separate incidents involving shoplifting and possession of weed.

Sad. I liked Jennifer.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 103/08/2013

I guess we can add "crazy" to "right-wing, homophobic cunt".

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 203/08/2013

Didn't she become an Episcopalian monk(ette)?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 303/08/2013

Sounds like the guy's a big drama pussy.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 703/08/2013

Oh Noes, she hit him a few times in the chest.

Did he cower in the corner of the locker room or drop to the floor and curl up into the fetal position?

What a PUSSY!

How about a "knock it off, bitch" and then an exit.

But No, drama pussy had to dial 911.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 1003/08/2013

Is Capriati more than one person r8? You're right, so many men get beat up by women and not vice versa, when will the downtrodden men be heard!

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 1103/08/2013

Why was she always so chunky? She was a tennis player for pete's sake. I say lock her up!

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 1203/08/2013

UHHHHHHHNNNNH!

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 1303/08/2013

I thought she was gay. Who is the closeted lesbian that tried to kill herself?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 1603/08/2013

Andrea Jaeger?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 1703/08/2013

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 1803/08/2013

Capriati overdosed on pills in 2010.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 1903/08/2013

Even though she was sometimes unfit before she retired, she could really hustle and scramble to get balls back (especially when playing Venus & Serena.) There was diva tension when Venus & Serena's tennis games and skills eclisped hers.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 2003/08/2013

There are several female tennis players who played near the peak of their game despite carrying extra weight: Capriati, Davenport, Seles, Serena Williams, among others.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 2103/08/2013

A yoga instructor had to come to his defense?

Psycho bitch

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 2303/08/2013

Wht R16 said. Could've sworn she was a lesbian.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 2403/08/2013

She's a hardcore Republican. She also made really shitty, homophobic statements about Amelie Mauresmo.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 2503/08/2013

I thought it was Martina Hingis who said that stuff.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 2603/08/2013

Jennifer has a history of swinging at men -- she once threw a punch at her boy friend and hit a waitress instead. Waitress sued; it was settled.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 2803/08/2013

No, Martina Hingis was too busy doing blow. She was also retired during the higher points of Mauresmo's career.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3003/08/2013

Are there any tennis insiders who can give us true gossip on tennis stars and their behind the scenes diva behavior?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3103/09/2013

yes, charlie.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3203/09/2013

I thought I should just BREAK into this thread discussion to assure all you tennis JUNKIES that I am a red-blooded all-American chick who happens to love the PEEN. They can be big-Hewitt sized BEER CANS, or itty bitty Federer PINKIES. Doesn't matter, love 'em all. So being such a loving dame, it UPSETS me to see Jennifer so troubled. Perhaps I should console her in the LOCKER ROOM; a hot shower can be so relieving. And if Serena's there watching with her MASSIVE mammaries and Wozniacki with her PERT bosom, well who am I to say no? Plus, it would remind me of the old days when Billie, Martina, Rosie, and Wendy would put on those SHOWER shows...

Oh, look at me, off-topic AGAIN. Anyway, good for Jen popping that dude. Wish I had slugged LAZENBY.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3303/09/2013

R14 and your friend at r27, no one said women abusing men should get away with it, but your attempt to make it seem like men get beaten by women all the time yet the women get let off the hook is bullshit and pathetic. More like the reverse is true and I didn't notice anyone say she should get away with it, as you falsely claim. There's an arrest warrant out for her, as there should be. Just as there should be for anyone who physically abuses or stalks someone else.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3403/09/2013

R33 lmao

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3503/09/2013

What R10 said. Bitch needs to keep her hands to herself, but this is ridiculous.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3603/09/2013

r34 If you would stop falsely attributing things to me, you would see we are saying the same thing. Nowhere did I imply that women beating on men is a huge social problem. I was responding to other posters claims that the bf was a "pussy" or "dramatic" by doing the right thing and calling the police.

Another typical DL idiot trying to stir up shit where there is none.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3703/09/2013

Not necessarily, because it wasn't clear at all from your previous post that that was what you were trying to say, R37.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3803/09/2013

Agree with r38. It sure sounded like you meant that r37.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 3903/09/2013

Yep, pretty sure I read back when she tried to kill herself that it was partly because of her fundie christian upbringing not approving of her lesbian leanings (also heard she was obsessed with her trainer at the time).

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4003/09/2013

He totally deserved it.

She should have used a knife though.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4103/09/2013

I'm not sure why you guys are calling him a pussy. She's fucking crazy. With a long history of being a crazy bitch. Remember when she played "Bombs Over Bagdad" on the first night of Operation Saddam's Overpumping So Let's Destroy the Place and Drive the Price Up"?

If she stabbed him 50 times and the witnesses at the trial said "Oh yeah, she used to slap him around all the time" you would shriek "SHE HAD A PATTERN OF ABUSE, WHY DID HE NEVER THROW HER CUNT ASS IN JAIL!!?!"

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4203/09/2013

R34, your nuts. Capriati's violence has been IN PUBLIC, officially reported on with police reports. Capriati has a history of drugs too.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4303/09/2013

OMG, r43, your reading comprehension is as bad as your friend's at r37. I wasn't referring to Capriati's personal situation - aside from saying it's absolutely right that this arrest warrant has been put out for her. I was responding to the post at r14, which seemed to be a random comment about how society somehow ignores women's violence towards men.

R8 is an idiot too.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4403/09/2013

Ah Jenny! Still the stupid white trash queen of tennis.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4503/09/2013

Aw, what's the matter r44 , someone misrepresenting your statement?

You, of all people, had it coming cunt.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4603/09/2013

"You, of all people, had it coming cunt."

You sound incredibly violent, r46. Is that what you say to people before hitting them?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4703/10/2013

She should have shoved a fucking tennis ball down his throat!!!

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4803/10/2013

Did she turn herself in yet?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 4903/10/2013

His ex-fiancé -and mother of his child- has been on twitter saying he's pulled the same thing on her. He had called the cops on her and tried to get her arrested after they had arguments. Meanwhile Capriati was surprised to learn her boyfriend has a child.

He sounds like a real winner.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5003/11/2013

She did struggle with her weight, but she had powerful arms.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5103/11/2013

Capriati's lawyer says it's all bullshit.

And, well, she hasn't been arrested yet because there is no warrant out.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5203/11/2013

Like I said....

Ivan Brannan is a BIG DRAMA PUSSY

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5303/11/2013

Would love a link r50. I want to partake in the mocking of this flowery, little drama King.

He obviously thinks 911 is his mommy!

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5403/11/2013

Thanks r50. I found this.

Ex-gf Christine Corley, who starred on Gordon Ramsey's MasterChef, says Brannan also accused her of stalking and assault.

"He's doing to Jennifer Capriati what he did to me! This man is just a master manipulator."

Ms. Corley, who has a 3 yr old son with Brannan, tweeted on Saturday.....

See I'm not crazy! This is the father of my child. HILARIOUS

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5503/11/2013

they both sound like incredible losers.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5603/11/2013

More detail from the gf.

LMAO at his star wannabe picture at the link. What a douche!

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5703/11/2013

shit, let me try again

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5803/11/2013

Because it's so fucking hysterical, I want to see if this works.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 5903/11/2013

perhaps it was Halloween that night

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6003/11/2013

r47 No need for you to worry, I don't hit women.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6103/11/2013

But you hit men, right? Maybe we should start getting angry about men who hit men, not just women who hit men.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6203/11/2013

HA

ex made a point of giving them the most ridiculous picture she had of him.

I mean, really, he does look like a deluded douchebag. Who the hell wears THAT to a bar?

What a BOZO!

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6303/11/2013

Has the big pussy spoken up yet?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6403/19/2013

Take the money away and it all sounds very white trash.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6503/19/2013

Why is this--"former Florida State University golfer"--listed as if it's prestigious?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6603/19/2013

Capriati has been officially charged with stalking and battery of the golf pro and wanna-be celeb ex-boyfriend.

Can Lyme Disease cause someone to behave like J-Cap?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6703/21/2013

Asswipe was NEVER a pro golfer.

He played a few yrs for Florida State and then quit the team.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6803/21/2013

Anything new?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 6911/16/2014

I thought she became a nun.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7011/17/2014

Capriati has been talking about making a tennis comeback, apparently to honor her father Stefano, who she calls "the only man who's never let me down".

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7111/17/2014

[quote] I thought she became a nun.

That was Andrea Jaeger.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7211/17/2014

Thanks r72

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7311/17/2014

Jennifer making a tennis comeback? At her age?

On a sidenote, has anyone noticed how skinny Monica Seles has become. Too bad she was seriously overweight when she came back from the backstabbing. She was never such a good mover in the first place (esp. compared to Steffi), but after that it turned into her most glaring liability.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7411/17/2014

An update on Andrea Jaeger.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7511/17/2014

Monica got very skinny after she retired.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7611/17/2014

Unfortunately, Capriati is still a little too sensitive/borderline psycho. Soon after she took to twitter to announce her comeback, there were a few tweets expressing some surprise at the announcement and questioning how competitive she could be. (She turns 39 in March.) Nothing rude or harsh, but certainly asking about the potential success of this endeavor. Her responses were a little... extreme, ripping into her "haters" and how the "press" was always out to get her.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7711/17/2014

pre-stabbing Monica wasn't half the pure athlete as someone like Steffi and others. But, she was a fierce competitor and had excellent footwork.

She wasn't bad right when she returned from the stabbing. But, eventually she balooned via depression, eating disorders, and a foot injury which kept her from training to her fullest (though, maybe she would not have anyway). Though she's skinny now, I'm not sure it's in the most healthy way possible. I hope it is, but I can see her being borderline anorexic.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7811/17/2014

The thing is hat Monica could be somewhat competitive despite being rather overweight. Some of the other players, including Jennifer, also were competitive despite carrying excess weight.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 7911/17/2014

that, not hat

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 8011/17/2014

She's special, as in slow.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 8111/17/2014

Maeanwhile in Spain, Arantxa Sánchez Vicario still looks quite lovely.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 8211/17/2014

Supposedly Jennifer is trying for a comeback.

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 8304/23/2015

At 57 years old?

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 8404/23/2015

39

by Brooklyn Decker Roddickreply 8504/23/2015

Please keep this fat, trashy, right-wing pig where she belongs: Florida.
