Celebrity singer Michelle Branch was detained for allegedly striking her ex-husband, Patrick Carney, in the face, amid her allegations that he had cheated on the pop singer, following their recent estrangement. She repeatedly slapped him, according to reports.
Police were called to their home on Thursday at around 2 AM for a potential domestic disturbance, according to documents from Nashville that TMZ was able to obtain. According to court documents, Michelle acknowledged slapping Patrick “one to two times” in the face.
The songwriter was taken into custody, and Patrick had no obvious wounds. The couple’s 6-month-old child’s bail was set at $1,000, and it appears that she was released from custody early due to breastfeeding.
In 2019, the All You Wanted singer wed the blues rocker. After three years of marriage, the singer and drummer Patrick Carney are divorcing. Teddy Landau is Michelle’s ex-husband, and they were married from 2004 to 2015.
The guitarist tweeted and then deleted a message on Wednesday night in which she claimed Carney had cheated on her while she was at home caring for their 6-month-old child. In April 2019, the musicians exchanged vows in front of friends and family at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans, including Owen Isabelle, her 17-year-old daughter from her prior marriage, and their 4-year-old son Rhys James. Carney at the time discussed parenthood and the significance of the name of his newborn daughter with Megan Holiday of Audacy.
The Black Keys’ eleventh album, Dropout Boogie, was released in May, and they are currently on tour in support of it. The celebrity revealed last month via Twitter that the first song from her upcoming album The Trouble With Fever, “I’m a Man,” was available. The release of her album is set for September 16.
