Actress Jennifer Freeman accused of attacking her NBA player husband ... but it's OK now

jennifer-freeman-earl-watso.jpgNBA player Earl Watson says his wife, former "My Wife and Kids" star Jennifer Freeman, attacked him earlier this month.

The incident was so bad that the former UCLA point guard filed divorce papers -- but he's since decided he wants to work things out.

The alleged Aug. 1 attack, as described in court documents, happened after Freeman, 24, received a text message late on Aug. 1. The 31-year-old Watson, who played for the Indiana Pacers last season, says he was suspicious and grabbed her phone to see who sent the text.
