Ronda Rousey has been blasted for dating Travis Browne who was still married to Jenna Webb when he started dating the former bantamweight champ. But the fellow UFC fighters turned lovers can now take their relationship to another level, as Brown is already officially divorced from Webb.
According to TMZ, Browne is officially free from Jenna Webb, whom he married in January 9, 2015. The two separated in June of the same year, and Webb accused Rousey’s boyfriend of domestic violence. Browne denied the allegations and UFC backed up the fighter, saying that their investigation did not yield to any evidence that prove Browne attacked his ex-wife.
Despite being criticized for dating Browne, Rousey is proud of their relationship. In her recent interview with Ellen, she revealed that her boyfriend was the reason she shook off her suicidal thoughts after her Holly Holm loss. She emotionally recalls, “To be honest, I looked up and saw my man, Travis, and thought, ‘I need to have his babies, I need to stay alive [laughs].’ I haven’t told anyone that except him. That’s what I was thinking, I was meant to have him when I was at my lowest. I don’t know if I would have made it without him.”
In a separate interview, Browne said he is happy to have been able to support Rousey during her darkest moment.
“Obviously we love each other and I’m just glad I could be there for her. That’s what a partner is there for. They are there for support whenever you need them, for good times and bad. We dedicate our lives for this sport and I’m glad I could be there for her and show her that support.”
