    Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati faces charges of battery and stalking for two incidents in Florida involving her ex-boyfriend, authorities said.

    Capriati, 36, intentionally touched or struck Ivan Brannan Jr. on Feb. 14, 2013, Assistant State Attorney David Aronberg wrote in a court document filed Tuesday.

    On Feb. 14 she allegedly punched Brannan, who is her ex-boyfriend, at a North Palm Beach gym, The Palm Beach Post reported.

    She also willfully, maliciously and repeatedly stalked Brannan from Feb. 16-Feb. 18, 2012, according to Aronberg.

    The couple broke up in February 2012, according to the Post.

    Both charges are misdemeanors.

    Capriati declined comment to the Post Thursday, and Brannan hung up on a reporter from the paper after she identified herself, the Post said. A Capriati spokeswoman has previously said that the allegations against her were an "overexaggeration" and denied them.
