Police were called to Jose Canseco’s Las Vegas home over the weekend after his fiancee accused him of threatening her life.

Police responded to an emergency call placed by Leila Knight late on Saturday, after she ended her engagement to Canseco.

She told officers Jose had “threatened to kill me and my mother” and had repeated the words “like, 20 times” after revealing she was leaving him.

Canseco and Knight were questioned but no arrests were made after cops decided instead to issue warnings to both parties.

Leila said she had left him and was moving back to Los Angeles to resume her modeling career.

Knight says she dumped the former MLB star because “he’s an a–hole”.

In response, Canseco took to Twitter to confirm the split, but denied making threats.

The former baseball star stated, “She’s slandering me because I don’t want to be with her… I fell out of love with her because she’s too controlling.”
