Jim Brown’s wife Monique Brown was apparently threatened with murder by Brown in 1999, but she later recanted the statement. Mr. Brown has a long history of allegations and disturbances centered around violence towards women. The debate whether the NFL should reconsider its relationship with Jim Brown has been brought up recently after the Ray Rice incident. Considering that he’s one of the greatest pro athletes ever and that he’s an old man now, I’d say it’s unlikely the NFL will change anything.
Jim Brown’s wife Monique Brown did not know him when he was a skull-splitting force of nature in the NFL of the 1960’s. He would basically run over people and get at least 5 yards every single time he touched the football.
Monique was 25 years old when her then 63 year-old husband apparently threatened to “snap her neck” in an argument they had in the Hollywood Hills. Monique also told the police Brown had smashed her car with a shovel. Monique later claimed that she was angry at Jim Brown for cheating on her and wanted to “provoke some type of response.” She had told police that Brown had choked her, given her a black eye, and stood over her at one time with a metal spear.
Brown later was sentenced to a 6-month jail sentence and served less than four months at Ventura County Jail. It’s anyone’s guess what Jim Brown’s wife Monique Brown actually thought of the prison sentence. For me, I realize that Brown is a famous NFL star and actor, but the guy seriously creeps me out. I can’t understand why any intelligent woman would go anywhere near this guy except because of fame and money. He threw a woman off a balcony in 1968. Of course, she denied it afterwards because Brown seems to be able to find the women who will blame themselves for getting beat up. Seriously, you “slipped off the balcony?”
