Who Is Alex Lovell? Man Survives Samurai Sword Attack By Angry Girlfriend

A Washington state man, who survived a samurai sword attack last week by his now ex-girlfriend while he was asleep, revealed his rigorous video game training regime left him with a lack of sex drive, and this resulted in his former partner thinking he was cheating on her.

“It killed my sex drive. I was training too hard, it exhausted me. I felt bad because she needed the affection. I just couldn’t keep up,” 29-year-old Alex Lovell told Buzzfeed News of his video game training regimen, which led to the attack by his ex-girlfriend March 3. “She thought I was having sex with other people,” Lovell added.

He was found by police curled up and bleeding in his bedroom in Camas, with three of his fingers severed and several life-threatening injuries in the middle of the night. Lovell told reporters he was able to wrap his girlfriend in a bear hug in order to stop her from continuing the attack.

“I saw the look in her eyes, and it scared the living poop out of me,” he told the Oregonian. “I told her I loved her, and she was killing me. She needed to call police, or I was going to die.”
