Adriana Lima's Husband Accused of Sexual Assault

Are newlyweds Adriana Lima and Marko Jaric already headed for splitsville? It's a possibility after these allegations.

According to Sports Illustrated, the 30-year-old guar Memphis Grizzlies basketball star is under investigation for sexually assaulting a woman in Philadelphia.

The alleged assault reportedly happened when Jaric was in Philadelphia to play the 76ers back in February.

The couple secretly wed in a private civil ceremony in Jackson Hole Wyoming on Valentine’s Day. Some honeymoon phase!


Marko Jaric's lawyer claims his client is 100% innocent. He released the following statement: "I received official word from the Philadelphia District Attorneys office that after a thorough investigation no charges will be filed against my client, Marko Jaric, in connection with the alleged incident with an unnamed female on February 11, 2009 while his team was in town to play the 76ers.

"Persons in Marko's position are often the target of malicious statements and it is not unusual for the police to be asked to investigate.

"However, these allegations were proved to be completely false, and while Marko is extremely unsettled by these accusations, he is happy that the law enforcement authorities have cleared him of any criminal conduct and the issue can now be put to rest."
