Known more for his off-court issues with stress and anxiety disorders, Royce White is under investigation as his ex-girlfriend, Maxim model Tania Mehra, is alleging that he hit her earlier this summer.
In late June, police arrived to look into a possible domestic abuse case, as Mehra had a bruise and cut above her right eye. At the time she told authorities that it was caused by falling down, but now she is claiming that White struck her.
As reported by TMZ, The new statement claims that Royce and Tania were in a heated argument after he made an advance on her friend, which eventually led to him striking her. At this time no charges have been filed, but police are investigating.
According to law enforcement, records show someone called 911 on June 22, 2013 to report a laceration above Tania's right eye. Cops say at the time, Tania claimed she suffered the injury from an "accidental fall." But Tania changed her tune last week ... and filed an incident report in which she claims she LIED on the night of the incident -- and says in reality, Royce is to blame for her injury. Cops tell TMZ, "The victim said she had lied earlier because the suspect played for the NBA and did not want the incident to damage his career."
