Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss’s messy divorce is settled and instead of a final rose his newly minted ex-wife, Laura, got a $10 million dollar divorce settlement and Mike got his temporary restraining order and domestic battery charges dropped. It’s a good thing for Laura that she can move on from this drama that was even messier and chaotic than the scripted Bachelor finale last night.
According to TMZ:
‘Bachelor’ creator Mike Fleiss has fully settled his divorce case with wife Laura, and she has dismissed her domestic violence claim against him.
Laura, who is 11 weeks pregnant with their second child, alleged in legal docs he demanded she get an abortion and attacked her. She got an emergency temporary restraining order, and a hearing was set for August 6. Fleiss denied her allegations and claimed she physically attacked him.
This is some dark stuff, Laura has accused Mike of trying to force her to have an abortion, taking her phone, and physically attacking her. Mike pulls a page from the blame-the-victim handbook and claims she’s crazy and is probably having an affair and he doesn’t even know if the baby is his. Classy to the end!
The good news is that they have come to agreement and it seems like justice will prevail. Or more accurately Mike paid his way out of this .
It feels fitting that the creator of America’s #1 dating show would be involved in a messy, scary divorce filled with restraining orders and alleged domestic abuse. He’s basically one of those people who try to make their lives look super perfect on social media, but you know some dark shit is happening behind those perfectly crafted pictures. Anyone who spends their career on The Bachelor trying to showcase a perfect love story between two fame hungry dum-dums is basically Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. I’ve seen UnREAL!
I’m glad Laura and her children broke free and got some of that Bachelor cash while doing so. Hopefully these two can keep it civil for the kids and Laura can find true love on a competing dating show.
