Megan Wants a Millionaire' star Ryan Alexander Jenkins eyed in murder of model Jasmine Fiore
A reality TV contestant being sought for questioning in the grisly murder of his swimsuit model ex-wife was accused of beating her before, court records revealed Wednesday.
Ryan Alexander Jenkins was charged in June with battery on Jasmine Fiore, who was found dead in a Dumpster on Saturday near Los Angeles.
Jenkins was charged with domestic abuse after he allegedly hit Fiore in the arm, Nevada court records say. He is awaiting a nonjury trial in December on the charges.
A contestant on the VH1 reality show "Megan Wants a Millionaire," Jenkins married the slain stunner in a quickie Las Vegas wedding in March, records show.
Fiore's mother pleaded for cops to track down Jenkins, who has been on the run since reporting Fiore missing over the weekend.
"I want to find this guy," said Lisa Lepore, Fiore's mom.
The heartbroken mom blasted Jenkins as a controlling type who was "insanely jealous."
"I never had good vibe with him," Lepore said. "They didn't get along. He's really cheap and just weird."
The mom said Fiore had the marriage annulled in May.
Jenkins, who previously served 15 months' probation for a 2007 assault on a woman in Canada, took off after reporting Fiore missing on Saturday - the same day she was found dead.
"He was the last person seen in the company ofour victim, in San Diego, at some sort of poker party," said Lt. Gary Worrall of the Buena Park, Calif., police, who described Jenkins as a "person of interest."
"We're characterizing the fact that we're not able to find him as suspicious," Worrall said.
Fiore, 26, was strangled and her nude body wasfound stuffed inside a suitcase by a bum looking for recyclables, cops said. She was identified on Tuesday.
Jenkins, a 32-year-old Canadian, is believed to have slapped the license plate from his BMW on Fiore's 2007 white Mercedes-Benz before heading north for the border.
TMZ.com reported that Jenkins flipped out after intercepting a text message to Fiore from her former flame.
"Suck it," Jenkins reportedly replied, using Fiore's phone, according to TMZ.com.
Fiore grew up a "wild child" in Santa Cruz, Calif., where she was raised by a hippie mom who insisted on being called "Spirit" and who lived - for a time - in the woods, a former work associate said.
"It's so sad because I knew this girl growing up," another family friend, Elizabeth Ngo, said. "She was so genuine. Everyone fell in love with her."
Fiore, who boasted 34DD-26-34 measurements and once appeared in an ad for Howard Stern's radio show, had recently changed her last name to Kinkade and moved to L.A. to launch a career as a personal trainer.
"She would walk into a room, and everybody would turn their head," Ngo said. "She remained good friends with all her ex-boyfriends, and they're all here in Los Angeles now, infuriated."
Jenkins' profile on VH1's site describes him as an investment banker from Calgary. He crassly claims that "he has left many amazing women in his life primarily because he wanted more women."
