Who is Jim West and how is his relationship with Aspen Ladd?
Jim West has constantly supported Ladd through her career professionally as well as personally. FOr instance, recently after Miesha Tate took a jibe at Aspen for missing weights and called her a cheat. West was the first person to stand alongside her partner and supported her.
Cheat? You dumb fuck she weighed in with damp sweats, shorts, sock, sweats etc which was 4 pounds (141) if you can do simple subtraction that equals 137. Cheat? Please explain that fucking magic.
