Impact Wrestling's Kimber Lee alleged Monday that her husband, WWE NXT's Nash Carter, physically assaulted her one year ago.

Lee tweeted two photos showing her with facial injuries and said Carter split her lip open:

Hey <a href="https://twitter.com/WWENXT?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@WWENXT</a> this is my face after your tag champ <a href="https://twitter.com/NashCarterWWE?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@NashCarterWWE</a> got wasted and hit me so hard he split my lip open. He told me I’m a wrestler so I’m always marked up. I’ve hid this for a year and even forgave him. But I can’t hide it anymore. <a href="https://t.co/qdYjcneAwC">pic.twitter.com/qdYjcneAwC</a>

Carter previously competed in Impact Wrestling under the name Zachary Wentz before moving in 2020 to WWE, where he is now one half of the NXT tag team champions with his MSK partner Wes Lee.

Last week, Kimber Lee tweeted: "I would love to be excited for @NashCarterWWE right know but I've hid his abuse for too long. No one should be abandoned. And silenced in hopes of keeping a career."

She later deleted the tweet.

After MSK defeated Imperium and the Creed Brothers in a Triple Threat tag team match for the NXT Tag Team Championships at NXT Stand & Deliver on Saturday, Lee tweeted that she was proud:

Proud 💜💚

Lee then responded to some who questioned her support for Carter and seemed to suggest that she and Carter were working things out:

Say what you want. Think what you want. The truth is nothing on this app matters. You have your minds made up because I put out a little too much personal information the other day. But I did not lie. I’m gonna go back to the people that matter, thanks 😘 <a href="https://twitter.com/NashCarterWWE?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@NashCarterWWE</a>

On Monday, Lee wrote that Carter had been lying to her in an effort to prevent her from speaking out:

You all wanted the proof. There it is. I’m sorry I backed out but he was telling me lies all weekend to get me to not say anything.

At the height of the #SpeakingOut movement on Twitter in 2020, several wrestlers from promotions across the world faced allegations of physical, mental and sexual abuse against women.

As a result, WWE released NXT UK performers Travis Banks and El Ligero, as well as 205 Live's Jack Gallagher.

The company has yet to release a statement on the allegations against Carter.
