Michelle Branch was arrested on Thursday morning for domestic assault amid an unpleasant separation from her husband, Patrick Carney.
The Davidson County, Tennessee, Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Fox News Digital that the singer was arrested early in the morning for domestic assault. She was released the same day on $1,000 bond.
The Nashville Police Department responded to a 2 a.m. call and Branch admitted punching Carney “once or twice,” according to court documents obtained by Fox News Digital.
In a since-deleted tweet, Branch accused Carney of cheating on her while she was home with their 6-month-old.

Reps for the singer confirmed the couple’s split with Fox News Digital in a statement from Branch which reads, “To say I’m totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel about myself and my family. The rug has been completely pulled out from under me and now I have to figure out how to move forward With such small children I ask for privacy and kindness.
The couple met in 2015 at a Grammy party when Branch was in the process of divorcing her former husband Teddy Landau. Two years later, Carney and Branch got engaged and they married in New Orleans in April 2019 in a ceremony attended by friends and family.

The couple share two children: a son, Rhys James, and a daughter, Willie, who was born in February this year.
“Michelle said she wasn’t sure about the name about 15 minutes before the C-section, and I said to her, ‘Are you serious?’ We didn’t know if it was a boy or a girl, it was a surprise. The girl’s name was Willie, and she was like, ‘I don’t know about that,'” Carney said in a podcast shortly after the birth of their daughter.
