Sorensen's ex-wife, Jessica Corbett, accused him of verbal abuse and physical violence during their stormy 2 1/2-year marriage, the Post reported, including running over her foot with a car and extinguishing a cigarette on her hand.
Sorenson denied the allegations, instead blaming Corbett for the physical violence.
He said in a statement he “never committed violence of any kind against any woman” and said he was “the victim of repeated physical violence” during his marriage to Corbett.
White House officials told the Post they only learned about the allegations against Sorensen Thursday night and immediately confronted. He resigned Friday.
