Darius McCrary Denies Dislocating Daughter’s Elbow, Accuses Estranged Wife Of Trying To Make Him Look Like A “Monster”
Darius McCrary is firing back at his ex, Tammy Brawner. The “Family Matters” actor was accused, by his wife, of dislocating their daughter’s elbow, but according to McCrary, he thinks his wife is pulling a stunt. According to reports, in March, after documents were filed, Zoey was diagnosed with Nursemaid’s Elbow; reportedly, a common childhood injury when children dislocate their elbow. While Brawner believes McCrary was the culprit, McCrary is humming a different tune. He says,
None of these allegations are true. It really saddens me, and it hurts me, actually. Basically, the way it happened when we were done visiting my family, she asked me to take the baby to the bathroom. And when I took the baby to the bathroom, the baby just said ‘ow’. I never pulled the baby. I’m a father first.
It’s more frustrating than anything is having to explain that you’re not this monster. The baby was never put over a boiling pot of water. In fact, if anything, I may have been showing what hot and what cold is, and pointing to a pot. I would never do anything to harm my child, this alleged injury, it didn’t happen. It never happened. In fact, it was really disturbing, in the hospital that night, she reached into the baby bag and pulled out this huge bag of sour patch kids and gave our daughter a sour patch kid, and the baby magically started moving her arm.
McCary also says,
I do believe it was premeditated. The ride from Beaumont all the way to West Hills is where this whole thing was concocted and planned out. I think she had to think of what she was going to do and this is what gave her the time, if you look at a map and look at where Beaumont is, it’s almost a three hour ride. There’s plenty of time to figure things out. I’m hurt and im devastated. I’m praying for her and she’ll be able to get her mind right and I’m praying for our daughter.
In June, McCary was court ordered to pay $30 for child support.
