Today in “NOOOOOO!”, Michelle Branch has called off her divorce from her no-good, allegedly cheating husband, Patrick Carney, aka one of the guys from The Black Keys. Well, at least for now. TMZ reports that Michelle, 39, and Patrick, 42, will press pause on divorce proceedings for at least six months as they attempt to reconcile. After that, the couple will decide if they want to call the divorce off entirely or move forward with the split. I think I can speak for everyone, including Haley McDonald from Full Stop Management, when I say: dump his ass, Michelle!*
*but also, like, do what’s best for you and your kids? Sigh.
Last Wednesday evening, Michelle Branch tweeted, then deleted, that her husband, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, was cheating on her with his manager, 27-year-old Haley McDonald “while I was at home with our 6 month old daughter. *shrugging emoji lady*” Later that night at 2:00 AM, the cops were called to the couple’s Nashville home, where Michelle admitted she’d slapped Patrick “one to two times.” She was arrested for domestic violence but released from custody early because she’s still breastfeeding. The following morning, 39-year-old Michelle informed TMZ that she and 42-year-old Patrick were splitting, and she was devastated for herself and her family. Now People is reporting that the very next day, Michelle filed for divorce from Patrick in Davidson County, Tennessee after three years of marriage. Michelle wanted to write, “Haley McDonald from Full Stop Management” as the reason for the split, but she had to settle for “irreconcilable differences.”
Michelle Branch Was Arrested For Domestic Assault After Accusing Her Husband Patrick Carney Of Cheating On Her
Michelle Branch hasn’t really been in the spotlight since the early aughts, when you couldn’t flip to any radio station without hearing her scream-singing her smash, Everywhere. These days, you might be lucky to hear one of her handful of moody singles in the grocery store while perusing for the perfect endive. She’s kept a relatively low profile since then, probably happy to count her money and go out in public without being recognized–that is, up until the last 24 hours. TMZ reports that Michelle believes that her husband of three years, Patrick Carney (who drums for The Black Keys), has been cheating on her with his manager, Haley McDonald. So, she put him on blast on Twitter and then gave a statement confirming their split. But it didn’t end there. Michelle was later arrested for allegedly slapping Patrick early yesterday morning.
