NHL Star’s Wife Says Teammate’s Fiancée ‘Wished My Unborn Child Dead’; Files Restraining Order
What’s beef? This is beef and a little bit more.
The wife of Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson has had enough and she has filed an order of protection against the fiancée of one of Karlsson’s teammates, alleging harassment and cyberbullying. The allegations are disgusting in nature.
Melinda Karlsson alleges that Monika Caryk took the time to post hundreds of derogatory online messages aimed at her and her husband. Caryk is the longtime partner of Senators forward Mike Hoffman.
“Monika Caryk has uttered numerous statements wishing my unborn child dead,” Karlsson said in the sworn statement. The Karlssons’ first child, a son named Axel, was stillborn in March.
Karlsson also claimed that Caryk “uttered that she wished I was dead and that someone should ‘take out’ my husband’s legs to ‘end his career.’
“Monika Caryk has posted over 1,000 negative and derogatory statements about me as a professional.”
Earlier this week, the Ottawa Senators sent out a statement that the NHL club is “investigating this matter in co-operation with the NHL and will take whatever steps are necessary to protect the safety and privacy of our players and their families.”
Hoffman has since denied the allegations in a statement to the Citizen.
“There is a 150 per cent chance that my fianceé Monika and I are not involved in any of the accusations that have been pursued (that are) coming our way,” he said in the statement.
Back in March, the Karlssons were the target of cyberbullying after a horrible comment was left on Erik Karlsson’s Instagram account after the defenseman made a post acknowledging the support he and Melinda received following their son’s death.
