The estranged Russian wife of the white nationalist leader Richard Spencer has detailed allegations of their violent and insulting marriage, because their bitter divorce is still in court.
Nina Kouprianova, who married Spencer in 2010 and is the mother of his two young children, applied for a divorce last year in Whitefish, Montana.
She has previously claimed in interviews and in court documents that her 40-year-old estranged husband physically, verbally and emotionally abused her during their eight-year marriage.
In an interview with HuffPost, Kouprianova described specific allegations of abuse she had in the hands of Spencer and dates back to the early days of their relationship.

The couple married in August 2010 in Niagra Falls but had a larger ceremony planned in Whitefish, where they lived in January 2011.
Kouprianova said she was in bed a few days before the ceremony in 2011 with a belly bum, when Spencer asked her to watch a James Bond movie in the basement with him.
When she said no, Kouprianova claims that Spencer dragged her down the stairs with her legs and hair.
They continued the ceremony days later, and Kouprianova said she hoped the incident would not happen again.
Kouprianova claims that he also held her by the neck and jaw when she was four months pregnant in July 2014 and pushed her into another stove when she was pregnant.
She claims to have hours of recordings from Spencer who shouted at her and told her to commit suicide.

She has previously claimed in interviews and in court documents that her 40-year-old estranged husband physically abused her, verbally and emotionally during their eight-year marriage.
In a series of text messages that Kouprianova exchanged with Spencer in 2016, he tells her: & # 39; F ** k you. Please kill yourself & # 39 ;.
I hope you kill yourself. I would really respect you, & read another message.
She reportedly responded: "I apologize for entering into an argument with you. I was hurt by your lack of simple five minute attention.
Spencer wrote back: & # 39; You are a disgusting c ** t & # 39 ;.
He also said to her: "The fact that you are in the mid-thirties and you are still so pathetic means that you will never change … so again, suicide seems to be your best option."
Spencer denies that he physically abused his wife, but admitted that she had yelled at her.
& # 39; I get frustrated. She makes me frustrated, "he told the HuffPost.
& # 39; It's hard to talk, words said in anger. There is a red line between actually doing something. & # 39;
Kouprianova currently lives in Whitefish in an apartment with the two children of the couple and her dog.
She said that Spencer had taken their car when she cracked and she received only $ 550 a month for child benefit and no alimony.
At this moment Spencer is only allowed to supervise visits with their two children. He will soon receive unguarded visits to his mother's house.
She claims that she is afraid of her children with the change in supervision while their divorce proceedings are still in court.
Their divorce proceedings are still running in court because Kouprianova is violating and offending marriage. Emails and text messages between the couple are included in previous court documents (pictured above)
Spencer was one of the organizers of the 2017 Unite-the-Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a woman who protested against white supremacy was killed when a car overtook her and he claims the term & # 39; alt-right & # 39; to have invented
The couple, who initially met on Facebook in 2009 and started exchanging messages, separated in 2016.
Her lawyers said in the newspapers that Kouprianova was reluctant to call the police or to seek a protection order for fear of further reprisals by Spencer & # 39 ;.
Spencer, who is the brave & # 39; brave & # 39; a white nationalist has been mentioned and is a figurehead of far-right groups, popularized the term "alternative law & # 39; to describe a marginal movement that blends white nationalism, anti-Semitism and other extreme-right extremist views.
He is the president of the white nationalist think tank of the National Policy Institute.
Spencer has previously said that he rejects the label of white supremacist and considers himself a white nationalist or "white identityist".

The & # 39; controversial public life & # 39; van Spencer was mentioned as a reason for the divorce proceedings, because it had meant that his entire family was the target of violence & # 39 ;.
In an affidavit of Kouprianova she said: "Despite the risk for his family (Spencer), he continues to engage in an extremely polarizing public speech calling for & # 39; peaceful ethnic cleansing & # 39; and a white-only & # 39; ethno-state & # 39; who tends to invite passions and violence.
& # 39; Most, if not all, (Spencer & # 39; s) public lectures result in violence. & # 39;
