Believe it or not, former “Baseball Wives” star Anna Benson claims she still loves her estranged husband.
Anna was arrested on Monday after she allegedly donned a bulletproof vest and burst into Kris Benson’s home, threatening him with a gun.
“I’m a good girl, a nice girl,” the 37-year-old former stripper told the New York Post. “I would never hurt [Kris]. I am still in love with him.”
Benson insisted to The Post that the former major league pitcher has repeatedly cheated on her, something she told FOX411 about when they first announced their split last year.
“It started with sexy text messages and that kind of stuff,” she told FOX411 about her husband’s alleged affair with her friend. “[My friend and I] were very close. Her mother was my nanny during ‘Baseball Wives’ – that’s how close we were.”
Anna ranted to The Post that the two “have been married for 15 years, and he can’t keep it in his pants. He can’t stop f**king my friends, in my house.”
Anna claims, according to a police report sent to FOX411, that she went to Kris’ house late at night to discuss the couple’s issues.
According to the report, once there, Anna smashed his computer with a metal baton and wore an ammo belt, which police later found when they searched her. They also found that she had a knife with her.
Kris claims Anna—while holding a gun—demanded he fork over $30,000. He appeased her by claiming he was going to get the money and then escaped and called police.
Kris filed for divorce from Anna last year but their split has not been finalized. He was recently awarded custody of the couple’s three children, according to The Post.
Anna is currently residing at the Cobb County Jail in Marietta, Ga.
