Alledged Spouse Abuse

Alex Diaz de la Portilla’s former wife tells us that she was in fear for her safety, and that her husband was especially a threat to her when under the influence of alcohol.

“She asserts that Diaz de la Portilla ‘has (or caused some one to) attempted to break into my office, my computer hacked, my house-bugged, my phone hacked, and up to last week, someone was beating on the back door of my house at almost midnight just to cause me to be totally in fear.’”

“...repeatedly stalked her since she filed for divorce...”

“... capable of doing anything, including great bodily harm...”

“My husband can be extremely explosive and violent especially when under the influence of alcohol.”
