Evander Kane says his estranged wife, Anna Kane, is straight-up lying … saying in a statement Wednesday he NEVER sexually or physically abused her during their relationship.
Anna, though, says he did in fact do those things … spelling out the allegations in new court docs, according to the San Jose Mercury News, that were filed in Santa Clara County earlier this week as part of her divorce case against Evander.
In the docs, Anna claims Evander forced her to have oral sex with him in March 2019 — just after a funeral for their baby daughter.
Anna alleges the San Jose Sharks player then forced her to have intercourse again days later … writing in the docs that Evander told her when she denied his advances, “you can’t rape your wife.”
“Evander again forced me, against my will,” she said in the documents, “to have sexual intercourse with him even though I had not healed.”
Anna claims Evander also roughed her up after one of his playoff games against the Las Vegas Golden Knights.
In the docs, Anna says after Evander had found out she had been drinking before the game with some of the other players’ wives — he snapped.
She says after the game, which the Sharks had lost, the 30-year-old winger, “began screaming at me and punching me on the upper side of my head above the hairline.”
She added, “Evander grabbed my blouse forcefully and pushed me into the wall of the room, slapping me across my face. Evander was screaming at me and threatened to hurt me even worse if I ‘disobeyed’ him and had any drinks without him.”
Evander, though, says it’s all B.S. … denying the claims in a lengthy statement issued by his attorneys.
“To be clear,” Evander’s attorneys said, “Evander denies ever abusing Ms. Kane or their daughter Kensington, whom he cherishes.”
“He recognizes that they have many years ahead of them as co-parents, during which they will have to work together, which makes it that much more frustrating that she has chosen this path.”
The attorneys added they’re confident Anna’s “lack of credibility” will be exposed at future court hearings.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Anna has hurled accusations at Evander … earlier this summer, she claimed the hockey player would bet on his own NHL games from to time.
Evander has vehemently denied those allegations, saying, “I love the game of Hockey and would never do any of what was alleged.”
The NHL has launched an investigation into the claims.
Meanwhile, Evander, in his own court filings, has accused Anna of getting violent with him on several occasions in the past, including an incident where he claims she punched him in the face multiple times.
The next hearing in the couple’s divorce case is slated for next week.
