She bounced around a few promotions, ultimately dropping out Sports Entertainment, only to return sporadically at the convenience her bookers. She was arrested in 2012 for disorderly conduct. A week later she was fighting charges theft. In 2013 she served 114 days in Jail for violating a protective order. That’s only half the story.
