Michelle Branch was arrested for allegedly slapping her ex-husband, Patrick Carneyto the face…that as a result of her claim, he cheated on her.
According to Nashville documents, obtained by TMZ, around 2 a.m. Thursday, police were called to their home for a possible domestic disturbance. Michelle admitted she slapped Patrick in the face “once or twice,” according to court documents.
Patrick had no visible injuries and Michelle was taken into custody. Her bail was set at $1,000 … and it appears she was released early because she is breastfeeding the couple’s 6-month-old child.
TMZ broke the story, Branch and Carney are separation after 3 years of marriage. She told us on Thursday, “To say I’m totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family. The rug has been completely pulled out from under me and now I have to figure out how to move on. before With such small children, I ask for intimacy and kindness.
News of the split came just hours after Michelle tweeted accusing Carney of cheating.
Michelle was previously married at Teddy Landau from 2004 to 2015, but married Carney in 2019.
We contacted Michelle’s rep…so far no response.
