In accordance with docs out of Nashville, obtained by TMZ, on Thursday at around 2 AM police were called with their home for a possible domestic disturbance. Michelle admitted she had slapped Patrick in the facial skin “one or two times,” in accordance with court docs.
Patrick didn’t have any visible injuries and Michelle was taken into custody. Her bail was set at $1,000 … also it appears she premiered from custody early because she’s breastfeeding the couple’s 6-month-old.
TMZ broke the story, Branch and Carney are splitting after three years of marriage. She told us Thursday, “To state that I’m totally devastated doesn’t even come near describing how Personally i think for myself and for my children. The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and today I must work out how to progress. With such small kids, I require privacy and kindness.
The split announcement came just hours after Michelle tweeted accusing Carney of cheating.
Michelle was previously married to Teddy Landau from 2004 to 2015, but married Carney in 2019.
We reached out to Michelle’s rep … up to now, no word back.
