Naya Rivera Charged with Domestic Battery After Alleged Altercation with Husband Ryan Dorsey
Former Glee star Naya Rivera was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery after an alleged altercation with her husband Ryan Dorsey on Saturday night in Kanawha County, West Virginia, police confirmed.
In a video captured by local news station WSAZ (who was first to report the news), a soft-spoken Rivera is shown handcuffed and dressed down in a hoodie and dark pants while being arraigned. The outlet reports Rivera was released on a $1000 PR bond and picked up by her father-in-law.
A rep for Rivera did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The past year has been drama-filled for the star, who called off her divorce from Dorsey — with whom she shares 2-year-old son Josey — last month. Dorsey, 34, and Rivera first dated in 2010 before going their separate ways while she starred on Glee. They later wed in July 2014, just three months after her engagement to rapper Big Sean ended.
In their statement about the divorce last November, the couple told PEOPLE, “After much consideration, we have made the decision to end our marriage. Our priority is and always will be our beautiful son that we share together. We will continue to be great co-parenting partners for him. We ask for respect and privacy for our family during this difficult time.”
Rivera briefly opened up about their reconciliation to PEOPLE last month, saying “It is what it is, but I’m glad that my family is together.”
