Chris Benoit Reaction: Ex-Wife, Father Speak Out




From; The Hollywood Gossip

A couple family members of Chis Benoit are speaking out on the horrific events of the past week.

The wrestler’s former wife, Martina Benoit, said the WWE star “was the most loving person anyone could imagine. I love him.”

Reached at her home in Ardrossan, Alberta, Canada by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Benoit called reporting of the killings in Fayette County “crap.” She did not elaborate before ending the call.

The ex-wrestler had two other children with Martina Benoit, who has not remarried. Chris Benoit married Nancy Benoit in 2000.

Meanwhile, Chris’ father cannot comprehend the events that took place approximately one week ago.

“We have no understanding of why it happened,” Michael Benoit said. “We need some time to gather our thoughts and wait and see. There’s still more information that’s going to come out from toxicology tests that will give us some understanding of why this happened.”

The patriarch, who lives near Edmonton in Ardrossan, said blood test results, which could take several weeks to be completed, “could give us closure.” He said his son had seemed fine when they spoke on Father’s Day, and had even said he regretted having to work instead of spending the day with his family.

“That really wouldn’t give you an indication of someone who would do what he did a week later,” the father said.
