Jenna Renee Webb slams Travis Browne's manager for 'absurd' comments, explains why she went to Instagram instead of police

Fitness model Jenna Renee Webb came forward earlier this week to accuse her ex-boyfriend, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight contender Travis Browne, of abusing her during their relationship, even going so far as to post photos of her alleged injuries on Instagram.

See them here.

Not long after, Browne's manager, John Fosco, came forward to refute the allegations, suggesting that Webb's injuries may have been self-inflicted or perhaps the byproduct of a career in fitness (read it). He also suggested that a man the size of "Hapa" -- had he actually hit her -- would have sent her to the hospital.

Webb fires back on Instagram (via Hardbody News):

"My response to John Fosco's assertion that I may have personally inflicted these bruises and wounds on my body is totally absurd. I challenge anyone to view the photographs of this abuse and conclude that I did this to myself. I would take issue with anyone that would suggest that these bruises came from any type of workout that I would do in my fitness profession. Furthermore, I find it utterly ridiculous that you would admit infidelity on the part of Travis as a way to make him look better in this situation. I never said a word about infidelity, I didn't play that card. I was only concerned about the issue of domestic violence and how it affects other people. The infidelity that you refer to is not brought up by me. It happened and I know it happened, however that is a personal issue that I have to deal with. Travis abused me. He abused me physically. He abused me mentally and emotionally. However, I find it unbelievable that you would be suggesting that I should have considered going to the authorities instead of social media. Going to the authorities means having Travis arrested, going to jail, charged with a felony, losing his career and possibly losing his kids. I chose not to do this, and continue not to do this because I have addressed my message to domestic victims everywhere. My goal is not to hurt Travis but to help present and future victims by creating awareness. Domestic violence is not acceptable and he will be held responsible in the court of common morality."

There's your "Instagram vs. police" explanation.

Browne has not commented on the allegations and has since been removed from all fight week activities. "Hapa" was in Las Vegas, Nevada, for International Fight Week ahead of this weekend's UFC 189 pay-per-view (PPV) event, but has since been sent home as the promotion investigates.
