According to the paper, in documents filed last week in Fayette County Superior Court, Candi Holyfield accused her 47-year-old husband of a violent act against her in the presence of the couple's two children.
Holyfield's publicist, Belinda Foster, said in an e-mail Wednesday night to the Associated Press that she'd spoken to both of them and that they remain "a strong married couple."
In a statement released by Foster, Candi said there were misunderstandings about what happened between her and her husband.
The Holyfields were married July 1, 2003.
Police did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press.
