GLOBE, Ariz. -- You never know who's watching you these days, but if you step onto Bobby Brown's property in Globe, east of Phoenix, make sure to look up, because you're on camera.

That's something Jason Moss didn't know when he was caught on surveillance video punching his estranged wife in the face, chipping her tooth and giving her a black eye.

"He should not have hit her, but she should not have been doing what she was doing," said Moss' aunt, Phyllis Ester. "She goes back to her ex and then back to Jason and back and forth, keeping him tied up in knots."

Moss' estranged wife is caught in a love triangle between her husband and her current boyfriend, Brown, who posted the video online.

The video is getting a lot of comments on Brown's Facebook page.

"They're just saying what a POS he is," Brown said.

Moss' sister, Dayna Corn, believes her brother is remorseful.

"I know he loves her," Corn said.

"We just want people to know that Jason is not a monster," Ester said. "When you find your wife with another man repeatedly you're gonna snap, and he snapped."

Moss is in jail facing child endangerment and assault charges because his wife was carrying her 2-year-old son and a puppy when he punched her.

The estranged wife said Moss showed up to her boyfriend's home when he was out of town to ask her to come back to him. When she said no that's when things got ugly.

According to Corn, that's not true.

Instead, both Corn and Ester suspect Moss was set up by Brown.

"He (Brown) wanted her to call Jason, have Jason come over there and the rest is history," Ester said. "It's a big setup."

Brown told 3TV he put up the cameras to watch his son play outside while he's working inside.

Moss declined to share his side of this story.
