Infidelity, betrayal and abuse are very difficult things to forgive, but most people resist the urge to cause a partner bodily-harm. However, there are some women that go against their better judgment and exact revenge on their guy. Most recently, the Premier of the Turks & Caicos Islands, Michael Misick, claims that his estranged wife, actress Lisa Raye McCoy-Misick, attacked him at his mansion in Turks & Caicos. She claims that she was refused entry to their home and was forcibly removed. In any event, both were taken to the hospital for bite injuries. “Whilst it is my sincere wish to avoid unnecessary conflict, I shall not be intimidated, nor shall those individuals whose job it is to protect and represent me,” said a statement released by Lisa Raye. The Misick’s separated after rumors of an affair between the premier and BET on-air personality Rocsi surfaced.
While I hate to admit that I’m throwing up a girl-power fist right now, I can’t help to think of all the other famous and not-so famous women that got revenge on their guys for infidelity or mistreatment, whether real or perceived. So check out this list after the jump.
- A Poulsbo, Washington woman was jailed after attacking her fiancé at a prenuptial party last week. Kitsap Sheriff’s deputies said the woman’s 12-year-old son told her earlier that day that he witnessed the fiancé kissing one of the woman’s friends. The woman kicked out her friends and told the fiancé to leave also, but then began hitting him in the face. When he left the house, she tackled him football-style, punched him some more, threw his watch into the bushes and broke his glasses. [HeraldNet]
- Who can forget the Lorena Bobbitt incident? On a June night in 1993, John Bobbitt returned home intoxicated after a night of partying and, according to his wife, raped her (he was later tried and acquitted). Afterwards she went to the kitchen for a drink of water and noticed a carving knife sitting out and “memories of past domestic abuses raced through her head.” She grabbed the knife and entered the bedroom where her husband was asleep and cut off more than half of his penis. It was later re-attached.
- Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes made headlines when she set fire to her boyfriend Andre Rison’s mansion and burned it to the ground. She claimed she was trying to burn his sneakers as revenge for his infidelity and abuse, but the fire got out of control.
