“He hurt her back. Gave her bruises, contusions and a black eye.”

But Lyssa didn’t want to tell the police about the abuse because at the time she didn’t want it in the press. Everyone in her family who knew about it, though, wanted to go after Bo, according to the source.

“She was confused,” the source said. “But then they went to counseling a few times. Even the counselor told her to get out of the marriage.”
