On Tuesday, a damning report came out that Brent Hundley’s ex-wife had accused him of abuse and giving her an STD in a damning lawsuit.

Less than 24 hours later, Hundley’s lawyer spoke to TMZ Sports and not only fired back at the lawsuit, but accused the unnamed ex-wife of extortion.

“She threatened to file this lawsuit (three years after her most recent alleged event) unless the sum of $750,000 was paid by Brett,” Hundley’s attorneys said. “This is IN ADDITION to over one half a million dollars she stands to receive from their brief 2-1/2 year marriage and the $13,000 a month she received for spousal support.”

“She also begged Brett to reconcile as recently as September 2019 to which he was not interested.”

The attorneys added Hundley will be filing a countersuit … saying, “Brett is known for being of SOLID character. We will absolutely defend Brett’s character against this malicious effort to extort him and/or disparage his excellent reputation.”

“Brett will be responding with a Cross Complaint … for Malicious Prosecution, as well as a claim against her counsel … for a baseless lawsuit that is among other things TIME BARRED.”

His ex-wife , who is identified as Jane Doe, claimed the Arizona Cardinals choked her and threw her around their bedroom during a heated argument in 2016, only letting up off his grip after she told him, “I can’t breathe.” She stated she suffered mental trauma and a broken ankle.

11 months later in December of that same year, she claimed another argument happened where Hundley pushed her through an open garage door, which caused her a back injury in the process.

3 months later in March 2017, she also alleges Hundley charged at her during an argument and threw her onto a pool table and repeatedly shoved her against it.

One of the most damning allegations was Hundley giving her an STD after having extramarital sexual activity.

The accuser is suing for battery, domestic violence, emotional distress and negligence.
