According to the police website, Michelle Branch is scheduled to appear in court on November 7. But the musician was released early because he was still breastfeeding his 6-month-old daughter, Willie Jacquet Carney.
Michelle Branch’s arrest came two days after her tweet was deleted. The tweet was about her husband Patrick’s infidelity. She said her husband cheated on her while at home with their newborn baby.
The following day, the 39-year-old musician announced that he and the Black Keys drummer had split. The two have been married for 3 years.
In a statement, Michelle Branch said her heart was “devastated” by her husband’s affair.
“I’m completely devastated and can’t describe how I feel for myself and my family. My rug has been completely pulled from the bottom and now I have to figure out how to move forward,” she said.
“With small children like that, I ask for your privacy,” he continued.
Michelle and Patrick, who is the drummer for Black Keys, first met in 2015 at a Grammy party. Three years later, the couple announced in 2018 that they were expecting their first child together, son Rhys James Carney, who is now 4 years old.
