Ennis says she and Foster had taken a break and he started seeing other people.

"He invited me to come see him in Florida and I came and he took one of my phones, and he slapped me and pushed me. I told him that I was going to tell his new girlfriend that he paid for my flight out there, so that's what triggered it," said Ennis

Ennis claims the incident left her with bruises on her neck and face.

Earlier this year, Ennis accused Foster of battery but later recanted her story and dropped the allegations.
