          Why A Woman Says She Lives ‘In Constant Fear’


          September 5, 2017

          Sky says that she believes her husband, Josh, is intent on destroying her life. The Australian native, who immigrated to the U.S. when she married just over two years ago, claims he’s “a Narcissist, a compulsive liar, an abuser and a psychopath.”

          “I live in constant fear,” says Sky of the alleged physical abuse. She also claims that Josh has fabricated his own injuries just to get her arrested and thrown in jail for domestic violence, which Josh adamantly denies.

          “He was attacking me, and in self-defense, I got him in a neck lock”, claims Sky. “The police thought that Josh was a great guy – and I was arrested.” She spent five and a half days in jail.

          Sky further claims that while she was incarcerated, her husband stole her identity and her life savings.

          Josh, who denies stealing from Sky admits to having become physical with Sky in the past, but claims it was her fault for “purposely pushing my buttons.”
