Police investigating 'Bachelor' creator Mike Fleiss and wife Laura's alleged altercation
'Bachelor' creator Mike Fleiss and wife Laura reconcile after dramatic split
Sometimes I wonder what will it finally take to be done with the Bachelor franchise? But I swear, every time I give it a chance, another scandal or toxic character emerges. As Variety reports, Laura Fleiss has accused her husband of attacking her and demanding that she get an abortion. She filed—and was granted —a restraining order. He reportedly feuded with a neighbor in Malibu by launching an aggressive noise war.
After an altercation outside their Hawaii home once owned by Julia Roberts! She claims he threatened to divorce her after she refused to abort a pregnancy that occurred after he had made it clear he did not want a second child and later became physically abusive after grabbing her cellphone. He denies the abuse, stating that he became angry after learning that, according to him, she had lied when she said she was on birth control and took her cellphone to see if there was anything else she was hiding. His wife, he says, then attacked him in an effort to retrieve the phone, following him to his truck and jumping on the running board. Whether or not this is a case of criminal domestic abuse will be determined by the Hawaiian authorities currently investigating the case; but it is clearly a case of a man who wants control but no responsibility.
Still, Clare had her doubts. However, a source close to Dale denied the accusations. Fans first learned the season 16 stars ended their engagement after Dale shared a statement on Instagram Jan. Meanwhile, Clare remained silent on the split until Jan.
