Matt Riddle is suing indie wrestler Candy Cartwright, real name Samantha Tavel. She made accusations about him during the #SpeakingOut movement.
Daniel Rose, Matt Riddle’s attorney released a statement on the matter. It is very to the point and painted their timeline of events.
There was a restraining order filing that was going to be heard in court, but they rescinded it. It was thought that Tavel had moved on. Now Matt Riddle is suing her as she has “continued false and defamatory statements” about the Original Bro.
“On July 14, 2020, our client Matthew Riddle only sought a cyberstalking injunction against Samantha Tavel. The Court set it for hearing as they found probable cause for the matter to be heard. It was represented to our client and our firm that Ms Tavel had moved on with her life and our client would no longer need to continue with the cyberstalking injunction. Our client then dismissed the cyberstalking injunction (without prejudice) which left all of his legal remedies open and allowed for closure. Today, our client has elected to file a civil suit against Ms Tavel for her continued false and defamatory statements that our client sexually assaulted her. No further statements will be made on social media on this matter at this time.”
No monetary amount was included in Daniel Rose’s statement on behalf of Matt Riddle. We will continue to monitor this ongoing story for any further information.
Matt Riddle did admit to having an affair with Candy Cartwright. He denied ever sexually assaulting anyone in his video admission.
