This past weekend, Vektor frontman David DiSanto was accused of violent physical assault, sexual assault, and verbal abuse by his wife Katy, who posted a statement detailing the history of abuse and a video of David physically and verbally abusing her. As MetalSucks points out, she has now posted a new statement, thanking the metal community for support and giving an update on her legal battles with David. The statement reads:

Thank you to everyone who’s been supportive throughout this. I’m truly blown away by the reaction of so many people – I’m so glad the metal community has shown me the same love that I have for it. I’ll try to get back to all of your individual comments and messages as soon as I can.

This week alone, I’ve spent 12 hours in courthouses, with more to come. I slept on a plastic bench in a police station as the sun came up. I’ve been in front of judges and back and forth to municipal buildings all over the city. I had to watch as two police officers evicted the person I tried to build a life with from our home. This isn’t just some social media posts – it’s a real situation that’s being processed through the judicial system. With any luck, it will involve David finally getting the professional help that I tried to help him get for years.

There’s so much more to the story that I haven’t revealed publicly. What you see on the internet is just part of this.

To anyone who has been critical, negative, threatening or otherwise vicious to me directly – these two sentences are all the attention I’m giving you. I’m happy that you nor anyone you know has been in my situation, and I sincerely hope you never have to know what it’s like.

Thank you again.

Stay tuned for any further updates.
