Images of the notorious Korean Air heiress Heather Cho subjecting her husband to verbal and physical abuse has recently emerged online.
On Wednesday, a video purportedly shows Cho, a former Korean Air VP also known as Cho Hyun-ah, shouting “Die! Die!” at her husband which was aired on local broadcaster KBS.
Along with the footage were some photos showing the man’s injuries, including marks on his neck sustained from apparent strangulation.
The husband, identified Park, is a plastic surgeon who reportedly filed for divorce last year citing physical and verbal abuse against him and their twin sons, according to AsiaOne.
Park submitted the photos and video footage to the court on Tuesday as evidence for assault and other charges he filed against his wife.
Park claims Cho choked him and threw a tablet PC at him. He further alleged that she threw silverware at her children because they ate slowly, and verbally abused them when they went to bed late. Cho also made international headlines back in 2014 for infamously throwing a tantrum during a flight over macadamia nuts in an incident now known as the “nut rage.”
Cho, who has denied the allegations, accused Park of making false accusations to gain leverage in their divorce proceedings. She also claimed Park was addicted to drugs and alcohol, accusing him of destroying their marriage by being negligent of their children.
Based on Park’s complaint, Cho, the daughter of Korean Air chairman Cho Yang-Ho, became more violent after the infamous “nut rage” incident in 2014, in which she forced the cabin crew chief off of a Korean Air plane because her macadamia nuts were not served on a plate.
Cho was suspended for two years and sentenced to one year in prison after being convicted of violating aviation safety, coercion and abuse of power in 2015, but only served 5 months after an appeal.
