Following a social media post, McKenzie reported multiple cases of domestic violence involving Edwards to police since they married in 2017 after meeting him at a gym in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Mackenzie told police her estranged husband “punched holes in the walls and doors” and grabbed her “by the neck against the wall” during an altercation last month.

Mackenzie has been granted a temporary protection order.
