Former governor’s ex-wife accuses him of physical violence toward their children

Former Missouri Republican Gov. Eric Greitens’ ex-wife has accused him of physical violence toward her and their children.

Sheena Greitens filed for divorce in 2020. A report by the Associated Press noted that the divorce proceeding included claims that he assaulted her and their children.

“Prior to our divorce, during an argument in late April 2018, Eric knocked me down and confiscated my cell phone, wallet and keys so that I was unable to call for help or extricate myself and our children from our home,” Sheena Greitens wrote in the filing, according to the report.

“I became afraid for my safety and that of our children at our home,” later adding that his “behavior included physical violence toward our children, such as cuffing our then-3-year-old son across the face at the dinner table in front of me and yanking him around by his hair.”

In addition to the serious nature of the claims, the report is important as Eric Greitens is now running for the U.S. Senate.

The controversy is also not the only one involving Greitens. He resigned as governor in 2018 following accusations of sexual coercion and blackmail from a former hairdresser.

The important matter will now draw further attention that could have strong consequences for Greitens personally as well as in the upcoming Senate primary.
