Jenn Allen, the ex-girlfriend of TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington, has accused him of mentally and physically abusing her. In a rambling Facebook post, Allen laid out her claim:
It hurts when you love someone borderline and they can’t feel anything at all for you, and threaten to murder you if you told anyone about the physical abuse – all for keeping his reputation. The emotional abuse was equally bad. On a positive note, it can’t get any worse than this and I can’t get myself of this bed.
In the update, Allen says that she dated Arrington for eight years, but Gawker suggested that might not be true.
Arrington — currently a columnist for AOL-owned TechCrunch — hasn’t commented on Allen’s very serious words, but we’re sure he will. We’ll update when any more details emerge.
