Pablo Popovitch Claims Ex-Wife Provoked Thiago Silva’s Crazy Violence Spree

More news to add to the Thiago Silva scandal as someone new has been added into the circle of events.

Apparently, Fabianna Popovitch, ex-wife of Pablo Popovitch, has been manipulating both sides of the twisted events. Pablo Popovitch of course being the aim of Silva’s anger and frustration as Pablo and Thiasa Silva (Thiago’s separated wife) had been believed to be having an affair. Thiasa had been dealing with domestic abuse from Thiago during the duration of their relationship.

Back on February 6, 2014 Silva arrived at the Pablo Popovitch Mixed Martial Arts Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Florida carrying a firearm, inebriated, and making threats. He was soon apprehended by police after barricading himself in his home.

Pablo took to to discuss how his ex-wife Fabianna manipulated both parties involved to simply make matters worse.

“Everything was settled for us, we made an agreement, we decided to get our own places. I waited till she found an apartment for her to live with my boys, paid for moving, the move in costs for the rental. Gave her the money we had agreed on that I would give her every month. I was taking my boys every other weekend, and seeing them twice a week. Everything was perfect. Then she started contacting Thiago Silva, sending him pictures and creating a bigger fire than it was on how long I have actually been with Thaisa. I guess she needed revenge for us not working out. When she found out that I was seeing Thaisa, she started calling my little sister, me and my brother-in -law, freaked out that she knew Thaisa’s ex-husband was crazy, and telling us to be careful. That if he found out, he would go insane. Later we found out, after he was arrested, that when the detective got ahold of his phone, it was Fabianna provoking everything. She would text me that she was scared of this guy, and right after text him egging him on to get pissed and come after me. I have evidence that the day Thiago Silva came to my gym, and threatened us. She sent a message to both my sister and brother in law scared for her life our families life because Thiago had threatened her and the family. The same day, at night he came to my gym with a gun, screaming out my name, and threating everyone at the school. Funny enough, last week, the mother of my kids, goes to court to defend this monster, that could have killed me, the father of her kids, or even her own kids, that were at the gym training jiu-jitsu just a few hours before. Why would she defend him, but yet try to scare the whole family that he could hurt anyone of us? What kind of games is she playing with this guy? What kind of mother is she? I don’t know who this person Fabianna is anymore. She jeopardizes everything, me seeing my boys, my business, our peace of spirit for her revenge. The crazy part is, I couldn’t understand why this guy came to my gym, he has a girlfriend, has another girl in Brazil pregnant of 5 months, why the hate towards someone he is clearly not with anymore for some time? It’s all clear now, Fabianna drove him so much over the edge, exaggerating how long I have really been with Thaisa, and everything else she did to persuade him to come to the gym with a gun.”

Pablo continĂșes on his Facebook for those interested in reading more on this MMA soap opera.

This could very well be simply adding more fuel to the fire. Only time will tell.

Silva, in the meantime, is currently on house arrest after being arrested for two counts of aggravated assault. He was immediately cut from the UFC following his actions and is not expected to be permitted to return anytime soon.

Its been reported that following Silva’s court date this week Silva’s manager will be attempting to salvage what is left of Silva’s MMA career and possibly schedule him a fight under another organization.
