Not only is Jesslyn Taylor not over it, but she's back with a vengeance. And, she's armed with a lawyer. She told RadarOnline.com:
“He slapped my hand away then he turned back slapped me in the head very hard,” she claimed. “I fell backwards. And then he actually reared back to hit me again, but a fan on the opposite side of the stage grabbed his arm and stopped him.”
Taylor's attorneys said she initially just wanted an apology from Tim, but in the days since, she has seen a doctor and reportedly has injuries related to the event.
Tim spoke about the incident in an interview reported by Taste of Country after it had happened.
“Sometimes things can lose context and perspective. I reacted in an instinctive, defensive way from my perspective of what was going on,” he said. “I think it was an unfortunate situation, I think all the way around. But it happened, it happened in a split second, it was pure instinctive reaction, I think you just got to move on. It is one of those things that happen, nobody feels good about it, but there’s nothing that could be done about it. You are in that position, you are out there, you are vulnerable, things happen and sometimes you react. There’s nothing to be said about it.”
Tim was a victim of domestic violence himself, and even spoke on his experience at an award ceremony in his honor at the Men Stopping Violence awards dinner four years ago.
“I am a product of domestic violence,” McGraw said at the time. “It is a learned behavior. I learned a lot. I learned how not to treat my wife, how not to treat my family.”
