The incident was so bad that the former UCLA point guard filed divorce papers — but he’s since decided he wants to work things out.
The alleged Aug. 1 attack, as described in court documents, happened after Freeman, 24, received a text message late on Aug. 1. The 31-year-old Watson, who played for the Indiana Pacers last season, says he was suspicious and grabbed her phone to see who sent the text.

She also tried to hit him with an iron, according to the legal papers, but he managed to knock it out of her hand. The alleged attack led Watson to file divorce papers, but soon after TMZ posted its story, Watson’s lawyer, William Briggs, called and said his client had changed his mind and would stick with the marriage. “The couple has reconciled their differences and plans to make their marriage work,” Briggs tells the site. Watson and Freeman, who played Damon Wayans‘ older daughter on “My Wife and Kids,” married in May 2009 and have a 10-month-old daughter.
