According to the piece, which was written by Michael McKnight and L. Jon Wertheim, Bradley was both physically and verbally abusive towards (his wife) Monique during their marriage. On a number of occasions, he allegedly broke her things, hit her, and even threatened her life. The entire report is extremely sad.
But on one occasion in September 2011, Bradley reportedly took his relationship with Monique to a new low. After the couple had separated and filed for divorce, he discovered that Monique's parents were living in the couple's home and helping take care of their kids. So he sent his father-in-law this series of disgusting text messages:
MILTON BRADLEY: And u mfs need to get the f--- out of my house. And that goes for your ho of a daughter, too. Try me.
BRADLEY: I'm gonna embarrass your whole family when I prove what a groupie ho your daughter is.
Then he sent Roger Williams a video of himself and Monique having sex.
BRADLEY: That's your daughter getting f----- ... and there's more where that came from.
And believe it or not, the story actually gets even worse after that. Sadly, much worse. You can read it here - http://www.si.com/mlb/2015/04/08/milton-bradley-domestic-abuse-mlb-monique-bradley. But we're going to level with you and let you know that if you don't want your day to be ruined—and if you don't want your faith in humanity to be shattered—then you probably shouldn't read it. The ending is truly heartbreaking and a reminder of just how devastating domestic violence can be.
