Boxer Andy Ruiz Sued for Alleged Rape, Assault by Ex-Girlfriend Julia Lemus


Recommended Posts


The ex-girlfriend of former heavyweight boxing champion Andy Ruiz Jr. received a temporary restraining order against him after accusing him of abusing her throughout their relationship and multiple instances of rape.

Per TMZ Sports, Julia Lemus filed for the domestic violence restraining order in San Diego earlier this month, stating he "sexually, physically, and psychologically abused me, making me feel like feel like I had to walk on eggshells around him."

Lemus also alleged Ruiz pointed "an AK-47 at my face" when she expressed discomfort with the number of firearms he was buying.

The restraining order requires Ruiz to stay at least 100 feet away from Lemus and prohibits him from owning any firearms.

In response to Lemus' court filing, Ruiz said in documents he filed that he "categorically denies that he ever has abused Julia Lemus or his children."

Ruiz also said in his documents that Lemus stabbed him with a knife in February 2020, and he also made a separate allegation that she "entered my hotel room with a loaded gun in her hand, and screamed, 'everybody get the f--k out of here.'"

Ruiz alleged Lemus hit one of his friends in the head with the gun in the hotel room and broke furniture in the room. He also accused her of stealing $250,000 worth of jewelry from him in March.

As part of the temporary restraining order, Lemus was given sole legal and physical custody of the couple's children.

According to TMZ, a court hearing is scheduled for Monday.

The problem he will have is that he will automatically be assumed to be guilty off the back of the allegations, if he is or not who knows but the two of them, but I would have thought his ability to fight could be brought into question whilst he is under police investigation.
