Utah Jazz center Jeff Withey has been accused of domestic violence in a police report filed by his Playboy Playmate of the Year ex-fiancee, Kennedy Summers ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Law enforcement sources confirm the report was filed in Manhattan Beach, CA on Tuesday and references multiple alleged incidents. We're told cops are focused on one alleged incident from 2016.
Our law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to an incident involving Withey and Summers last year, but no report was made at the time and nobody was arrested.
The two had a contentious relationship ahead of their engagement. In 2016, Kennedy publicly accused Withey of cheating on her on social media, but eventually deleted the posts. A few months later, they got engaged, but broke up the relationship altogether in October.
Withey and the Jazz are heading back to Salt Lake City for the next two games in the first round playoff series, after a split with the Clippers in Los Angeles.
