A: It's alarming that your soon-to-be ex-wife is using her platform to incite bullying and potential harm towards you. Your safety is paramount, and it's essential to take immediate action to address this situation. Begin by documenting all instances of threats or harmful behavior, including screenshots or recordings of her TikTok videos and any messages or comments from her followers threatening you.

Contacting law enforcement in both Tennessee and Kentucky to report the threats and harassment may be necessary to ensure your safety. Provide them with the evidence you've gathered and explain the situation thoroughly, emphasizing the potential danger you're facing as a result of your ex-wife's actions. Additionally, consider seeking a restraining order or protective order against your ex-wife to legally prevent her from further inciting harm or contacting you.

While addressing the immediate threat to your safety, it's also important to consult with a legal advisor who can help you navigate the legal implications of your ex-wife's actions, especially regarding any potential defamation or privacy violations. They can provide guidance on how to protect your rights and pursue legal recourse against her for the damages she has caused. Remember to prioritize your well-being and seek support from trusted individuals or organizations who can offer assistance during this challenging time.
