Breakups are tough. And when there is millions of dollars at stake, people do some incredible things in order to get their hands on the money.
Recently, Florida millionaire Scott Mitchell released some very interesting surveillance footage. His girlfriend, Mary Hunt, had issued claims that he abused her during their bitter legal battle. But the video footage has a much different story to tell…
After their relationship went into a tail spin, Scott Mitchell called off his engagement to Mary Hunt last summer. That’s when the blonde accused Mitchell of beating her.
She said he left her covered in bruises and gave her a black eye.
Mitchell was incredulous. He had never hit his ex-fiance and needed a way to prove it. Thankfully, he had security video footage to prove it wasn’t him…
In the footage that 45-year-old Mitchell released, you can see 29-year-old Hunt beating herself up in order to squeeze more money out of her rich ex-fiance.
The footage has since gone viral.
The businessman who is located in Tampa Bay, Florida has also accused hunt of stealing more than $2.1 million worth of jewelry from the safe in his huge Florida mansion when he broke up with her last summer.
Hunt decided to lash back with her own allegations. She said her ex was violent toward her. She said he gave her bruises and black eyes before he broke off the wedding last August. She then proceeded to beat herself up to prove that her injuries were real. Except she did it all on Mitchell’s security camera…
The recently released video clip not only proves that Mary Hunt not only has a screw loose, but that the injuries were clearly self-inflicted.
Mitchell’s attorney, Todd Foster, told FOX 13: “The explanation for the black eye is now very different. There is no evidence that he ever beat her. This video now demonstrates that she is striking herself in the same area of the face and head that they allege Scott struck her.”
Mitchell and his legal team have hired a forensic expert who used to work for the FBI to take a look at the footage as the couple’s legal battle continues to heat up.
In June, the 29-year-old blonde told the TV station, “There were so many times when I wanted to give up, but I couldn’t do it anymore and I think about how much he would have wanted this.”
Earlier in 2016, Mitchell filed a lawsuit against his 29-year-old ex along with her parents Linda and Michael Hunt. He claims her parents helped her hide his high-end jewelry which includes 99 three-diamond necklaces and 147 gold rings and 172 loose diamonds.
After Hunt was kicked out of Mitchell’s mansion, surveillance footage captured Hunt and her mother mailing a package at a UPS store on August 11.
A week later Mitchell received an intoxicated phone call from Hunt’s father. He told Mitchell that a box of jewels was delivered to his home in Pirates Point, Virginia.
Mitchell recorded that conversation where Michael Hunt says: “These are bracelets, these are diamonds, they’re every … thing.”
The millionaire checked the safe room and found the jewels missing.
Mitchell is the CEO of the salon products company Simply Organic and funded Mary Hunt’s life completely for two years.
In October, Hunt was charged with grand theft. She has been arrested.
