CELEBRITY Relationships

When it comes to celebrity couples, it's easy to imagine they haven't a care in the world. With all the glamor and opportunity present in their lives, you might think they'd never have anything to argue about. The reality is, of course, that celebrities experience ups and downs in their relationships just like regular folk.

A video surfaced of UFC President Dana White and his wife Anne getting into an altercation on New Year's Eve during a celebration in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, forcing the two to address the incident to the public. The footage from TMZ  showed Dana leaning in to say something and Anne slapping him, then Dana slapping her back. People around them stepped in before he could slap her again. In a statement to TMZ, Anne said, "Unfortunately, we were both drinking too much on New Year's Eve and things got out of control, on both sides," adding that "Nothing like this has ever happened before."

In his own statement Dana said, "You've heard me say over the years, 'There is never, ever an excuse for a guy to put his hands on a woman,' and now here I am on TMZ talking about it." He continued, "My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years. We've known each other since we were 12 years old. We've obviously been through some s—t together. We've got three kids." He said that while it was the first time that had ever happened, he wasn't making excuses for his actions and added "Whatever people say is deserved. I deserve it." Their focus, however, is on their children right now, who have seen the video.
