Millionaire releases footage showing his ex-fiancee ‘beating herself up’ after she accused him of attacking her in bitter legal row (watch)

Lawyers for a millionaire businessman embroiled in a bitter legal battle with his ex-fiancée have released video footage of the woman appearing to hit herself amid claims he beat her up.

Scott Mitchell was previously accused by ex Mary Hunt of physical and psychological abuse, telling reporters she suffered a black eye at the hands of the beauty products mogul.

Now Mr Mitchell's legal team have published security footage from inside the couple's Tampa Bay home, seemingly showing Ms Hunt having a meltdown and beating herself up.

The clip shows Ms Hunt sitting on a bed and shouting, before striking herself several times around the face and head.
Mr Mitchells' attorney Todd Foster said the footage was proof his client did not strike Ms Hunt.
He told Fox 13 :

"The explanation for the black eye is now very different.
"There is no evidence that he ever beat her. This video now demonstrates that she is striking herself in the same area of the face and head that they allege Scott struck her.”

Mr Mitchell, 45, is chief executive of Simply Organic Beauty, which makes naturally-sourced salon and beauty products.
He is suing 29-year-old Ms Hunt, 29 and her parents, claiming she stole more than $2m worth of jewellery after the couple split last summer.

Mr Mitchell's lawyers have previously produced CCTV footage allegedly showing Ms Hunt stealing valuables from his mansion.

But Ms Hunt's lawyers have contested the images, hiring a video expert who suggested the footage could have been doctored.

Ms Hunt's legal team have also released private security footage, showing Mr Mitchell having an angry meltdown on his drive way, in an attempt to demonstrate his fiery temperment.
