I’ve already talked about how fucked up Jens Pulver’s life has been. But it looks like there’s always something new about his life to talk about. I have to wonder how the rest of the Pulver family feels about their shit getting all over CBS Sports and Yahoo every time Jens is about to fight. It’s not like they deserve privacy considering the situation. But most people try to keep those dirty family secrets as just that: secrets.
Not Jens, who dishes the latest dirt on his brother Dustin and his sister Jamaica (P.S to prospective parents: naming your child Jamaica = doomed from the start) :
For years the problem was his father, whose violent rampages against young Jens and his mother spurred Jens in 2003 to write a biography, Little Evil. In the past few years, however, the problem has become his other brother, Dustin.
Last month, Dustin Pulver was sentenced to 50 years in prison for a string of armed robberies, kidnapping and sexual abuse. Dustin Pulver appeared before the judge bearing one tattoo of a $100 bill and another that said, Drug Dealer. According to published reports, Dustin Pulver greeted the judge’s sentence by sneering back, “What do you want me to do, crack? Beg? I’m not going to beg you for nothing. You ain’t God.”
Jens Pulver smiles a different smile, a sad one, when he talks about his other brother.
“He’s beyond violent,” he says of Dustin. “Has he ever killed anyone? Put it like this: He never got busted for it. But he’s done some things, and he’ll spend the rest of his life in prison.”
Pulver says his sister, Jamaica, also is in prison. He says she lost her kids because of drug problems. Jens’ mother has been caring for Jamaica’s kids in a location Jens won’t reveal. He says his father, the other Jens Pulver, doesn’t need to know that kind of information.
