Real Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter has hit another roadblock as she nears closure with her ex-husband Matt. On September 4, he was slapped with more charges from the Orange County District Attorney’s Office connected to his arrest for domestic violence on June 22.
The legal documents claim that he “inflicted corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition” to Gina. According to the RHOC star, the former couple allegedly has a history of abusive behavior, which Matt has denied.
Even though Matt was arrested in June, prosecutors did not charge him until September 4.
If Matt is found guilty, he can spend 4 years and 8 months in state prison, RadarOnline exclusively reported from Orange County D.A. spokeswoman Kimberly Edds.
When Matt was initially arrested in June, Gina accused him of hitting, choking and dragging her. She also alleged that he threatened to kill her during the horrifying incident, according to court documents from June 24.
The former couple reached a divorce settlement on August 20, which granted Gina primary custody and $10,000 in child and spousal support from her ex-husband.
Their marriage will officially be over on December 31. It remains unclear how these felony charges will affect their divorce details.
