Amy Polinsky made the claim in a since-deleted Instagram post, which also mentioned Graves' alleged alcoholism and previous suicide attempts.
"This may be totally below me to do but I'm hurt. I’m sad. I've put 11 years into supporting a man to accomplish his dream only for him to punch me in the gut!" she wrote in a caption of a family photo. "I've been through suicide attempts, alcoholism, among so much more with him and stuck by his side. The kicker is finding out that he’s been sleeping with one of my daughters role models all along. @carmellawwe and @wwegraves I hope you guys are happy. I really do!"
Polinksy shared screenshots of alleged messages sent from her estranged husband. One of the shots showed a series of disturbing texts from someone listed as "Hubs." The sender made statements that suggested he was considering killing himself: "I'm dead [...] I just kinda wanna disappear forever. Legit, I can't do any better than what I've got. I think this is it for me," the messages read. "[...] I've come to terms recently, that I need to shut it all down. All of it. I'm going to sleep. Maybe I'll wake up. Maybe I won't. I don't wanna wake up anymore. Just make sure the kids know I loved them."
Shortly after her initial post, Polinsky returned to Instagram to share a text message from someone with the contact name "Matt," which is also Grave's birth-given name. The sender asks Polinsky if she's drunk before warning her about potential legal action.
Graves and Carmella have not publicly responded to Polinsky's allegations.
