Metal Sucks reports: In a series of posts to social media, Katy DiSanto, the wife of Vektor vocalist/guitarist David DiSanto, has accused her husband of a consistent pattern of violent and abusive behavior.
(Warning: this post contains violent depictions of domestic abuse.)
Katy has shared a minute-long video she filmed with her cell phone that shows David picking up Katy and throwing her, loudly verbally berating her and throwing a pillow at her face while she quietly cries, after which sounds can be heard of someone (presumably David) hitting something off-camera very hard. A caption accompanying the video states that the couple was arguing because “he let his dog go to the bathroom in the house and was refusing to clean it up.” A separate photo shows a door with four holes in it, with the caption “I was later reminded ‘it could have been my face.’”
The video also shows photos of two court documents. One document, filed in Philadelphia, appears to be a lawsuit against David in family court. The other is a Temporary Protection From Abuse Order that was issued against David this past Tuesday, June 11th, 2019. According to Katy, David is currently “out of the house for now.” Katy credits the Women Against Abuse organization for their help with her legal matters.
In a separate post, Katy describes in detail several incidents of abuse perpetrated by David against her which she says were fueled by his alcoholism. Among her allegations are that David stole their wedding money because he’d been fired from his job for showing up hungover too many times, that he strangled her in a San Antonio hotel room until another room called the cops, that he sexually assaulted her in Salt Lake City then locked her in a basement and told her not to talk about it, and that he vandalized the couple’s house with spray paint and insisted she clean it up. She also claims he regularly lied about his drinking and hid bottles of booze, drove drunk on numerous occasions and often flew into jealous rages over perceived infractions.
