Michelle Branch is popular for her songs, such as The Game of Love, All You Wanted, Leave the Pieces and Breathe. The Grammy-winning singer gained fame in the early 2000s with her two hit albums, The Spirit Room and Hotel Paper. The singer has once again gained the spotlight, but the reasons are not good this time.
Michelle Branch physically assaulted her husband for cheating on her
According to TMZ, the singer was arrested for physically abusing her husband, Patrick Carney. As per the report, the singer slapped her husband for allegedly cheating on her with another woman. TMZ received documents that stated that the police were called at 2 am on Thursday night after the singer slapped her husband “one or more times.”

According to the report, the husband did not suffer any severe injuries, and while the singer was taken into custody, she was released on bail shortly after. Even though the two have a six-month-old baby together and have been married for three years, the couple has decided to go separate ways.
In a statement to TMZ, the singer stated,
“To say that I am totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family. The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and now I must figure out how to move forward. With such small children, I ask for privacy and kindness.”
