*Stacey Dash’s estranged husband Jeffrey Marty claims he was hypnotized into marrying the actress two years ago. The couple tied the knot on April 6, 2018, only 10 days after they met. 

The “Clueless” star filed for divorce last year, and announced her separation from Marty in a statement shared on her Instagram account. 

In a new court filing, Marty asks the judge to grant a speedy annulment, PEOPLE reports. In the court documents obtained by TMZ, he claims the two only married 10 days after Dash’s pastor “unexpectedly and suddenly proclaimed that it was God’s will” for them to wed. The former couple married on April 6, 2018, which Marty claims was influenced by “hypnotic prayer techniques.”

In response, Dash’s publicist Claudia Greene said, “In our country, people are free to say whatever they want regardless if their statement is baseless. That’s what makes America so great. With that being said, Stacey also filed her response in saying that she was unaware of her estranged husband mental state at the time of her marriage. With the line made famous by the film War Games “Sometimes the only way to win is not to play.” Stacey hopes her case will be finalized soon.”

STACEY DASH, MARTY

Dash filed for divorce from Marty in June, nine months after she was arrested over an alleged domestic violence incident at their Florida home. 

We previously reported… Marty called police and Dash was arrested following an alleged physical altercation with him.

“No charges were pressed by her husband, however, Deputies arrested Ms. Dash peacefully, as a formality,” said a statement obtained by PEOPLE at the time.

“The marital dispute, while personal and unfortunate, has since been blown out of proportion” the statement continued. 

Following her arrest, Dash tweeted, “Like normal married couples my husband and I had a marital dispute that escalated. Thank you for your support and love. Please give him the same.”

As noted by TMZ, prosecutors in Florida dropped the domestic violence case because there was no way to prove Stacey caused the single scratch on Jeffrey’s arm.

Dash announced her separation from Marty in a statement shared on her Instagram account. 

“Hello Everyone, My husband and I have made the hard decision of ending our marriage,” she wrote. “After much prayer, I feel this is the right path for both of us. I wish him nothing but the best.”

She added, “Thank you everyone for your support and respecting our privacy during this difficult time.”
