Brendan Schaub calls Ronda Rousey hypocrite for dating alleged wife beater
Ronda Rousey managed to keep her love life under wraps for a long time, but the gossip is slowly starting to trickle out with the help of people like her ex-boyfriend Brendan Schaub.
We learned a couple of weeks ago that Schaub, an ex-football player turned MMA fighter, used to be in a relationship with Rousey that he did not enjoy for very long. Shortly after that, Jenna Webb, the wife of UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, ripped Rousey for allegedly sleeping with her husband after a man posted a photo on Instagram that showed Rousey and Brown dining together.
To make the situation even more sticky, Webb posted photos on Instagram last month of injuries she says she sustained when Browne beat her. That brings us to Schaub’s “The Fighter and the Kid” podcast from Thursday, during which he called Rousey a hypocrite for some of the things she has said about Floyd Mayweather Jr.
“It’s tough when you’re like, don’t be a do-nothing bitch and you hate on Mayweather, and then your boyfriend’s over here beating the sh– out of his wife,” Schaub said. “Not to mention, he’s still married. So it’s tough when you’re a role model.”
The relevant portion of the podcast was deleted — likely due to pressure from the UFC or the potential for a lawsuit — shortly after a Reddit user shared it.
Schaub was, of course, referring to Rousey’s insistence upon bringing up Mayweather’s history with domestic violence.
The more fame Rousey gains, the more she is going to have to deal with stuff like this. It’s almost impossible to keep your private life separate from your career when you’re a full-blown celebrity, and Rousey has certainly reached that status.
