CelebNSports247.com has learned that a video surfaced on social media that of two women fighting over their man Big Papi, the problem is neither of the women was his wife.
It has only taken 24hrs for the dirt to begin to surface and what we have learned is that David ‘Big Papi’ Ortiz was allegedly shot as a result of dealing with the wife of a drug lord. This might explain why the shooter came into the bar and only targeted him.
Now that David and his wife Tiffany Ortiz are back in the US in Boston, his wife released a statement in regards to ‘Big Papi.’
Tiffany assures fans and family that her husband is ‘resting comfortably’ after having a second surgery upon arriving in Boston on Monday. Yesterday he was in ICU in a DR clinic.
Mrs. Ortiz first thanked the Boston Red Sox franchise for their efforts to have a plane ready for him to take him from his hometown in Santo Domingo to Boston in her statement.
The statement reads as follows:
He’s is stable, awake and resting comfortably this morning in the ICU where he is expected to remain for the next several days. On behalf of me and my family, I want to thank John and Linda Henry, Tom Werner, Sam Kennedy and the Boston Red Sox for all that they are doing for David and our family, as well as Dr. Larry Ronan and the amazing staff at Massachusetts General Hospital.
What Tiffany did not speak on was that her husband has allegedly been dealing with the wife of a drug lord which might explain the women fighting below:

We have also learned that Big Papi’ life was in danger before the shooting:
A report from Diario Libre, one of the leading newspapers in the Dominican Republic, had the details.
The report has been translated from Spanish to English:
The investigations into the attack against David Ortiz are moving fast. The Attorney General Jean Alain Rodríguez had already warned this morning that the case did not correspond to a robbery or an action of street violence. Everything pointed to the fact that it was a personal settling of accounts.
Big Papi friends count, asking absolute confidentiality, that they had already warned him of the danger he was running. Ortiz would be seeing a woman, related to a suspect being involved in matters related to the world of drugs. Despite the warnings from his inner circle, these sources comment, Ortiz continued to frequent the company of the woman. This would have incited crime.
