Sky claims her husband, Josh, physically abuses her, and that their altercations often leave her covered in bruises. She claims the abuse started about six months after they married, soon after she relocated to the United States from Australia to be with him. Josh admits to some of Sky’s claims, but denies others.

Sky claims that she and Josh were having an argument in the car and that Josh then hit her for the first time.
“He was driving like a maniac on the highway. I told Josh to let me out” claims Sky. “Josh then punched my upper arm with his right arm and then held me down in the seat. The only way I could get away was to wriggle down in the seat and then bite his forearm as hard as I could.” She says he later apologized and promised never to hit her again.
Josh claims that Sky “deliberately provokes” him to the point of physical violence. Tune in to Tuesday’s Dr. Phil.
