Stacey Dash’s ex Jeffrey Marty ‘claims hypnotic prayer techniques were used and wants annulment’

Drama: Stacey Dash

Stacey Dash’s estranged husband Jeffrey Marty has asked a judge to annul their marriage after claiming he was ‘hypnotised’ into the union.

The lawyer is said to have claimed he only got married to the Clueless star, 53, in April 2018 – just 10 days after they first met – when ‘hypnotic prayer techniques’ were used by a pastor who put ‘serious religious pressure on him’.

The actress announced in April that the couple had ended their marriage and in June she filed for a divorce petition in Pasco County, Florida.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ on Wednesday, Jeffrey has now filed new court papers in response to her divorce petition. 

The website claims the lawyer only married Stacey as 10 days before their wedding her pastor ‘unexpectedly and suddenly proclaimed that it was God’s will’ that they got married.

Jeffrey has also reportedly cited that he was unable to consent to the nuptials as ‘hypnotic prayer techniques’ were used and there was ‘pressure from other clergies’.

TMZ claims that the lawyer hasn’t described the ‘hypnotic’ techniques used while Stacey’s attorneys ‘don’t fully admit’ to the claims.
