Beauty and the Beast
Julie Donaldson has accused Ivan Lattimore of beating her. The 32-year-old blonde, blue-eyed former Miss Florida USA winner had been dating the professional Slamball player since November 2007 and been beaten four times since then. The interval between beatings was only because he lived in California and had to commute to visit her. Her 6 foot 4 inch, 215 pound boyfriend first bruised her arms at the Super Bowl in Arizona. The second time, Lattimore grabbed her hair and forced her to punch herself.
Finally, Julie Donaldson had enough after the latest incident, which took place the night of her birthday, when Lattimore threw her five feet against a wall. After locking herself in the bathroom, the brutal boyfriend kicked in the door and punched her twice. He also bit her left cheek. Luckily, the assault occurred during a party, and one of the other guests called the police. After he was arrested, he even had the nerve to call Donaldson 47 times on her cellphone.
Born in Ponte Vedra, Florida, Julie Donaldson graduated from the University of Florida and went on the participate in several beauty pageants. After being crowned Miss Florida USA 2000, the beauty queen went on to compete in the Miss USA 2001 contest, but didn't place. For a career change, she went into the sportscasting business, working as an anchor for SportsNet in New York before leaving to report for WHDH-TV in Boston.
