The couple's divorce comes on the heels of Branch's arrest Thursday, which saw the 39-year-old singer taken into custody for misdemeanor domestic assault by offensive/provocative conduct.
According to docs obtained by TMZ, police were called to Branch and Carney's home at around 2 a.m. on Thursday for a possible domestic disturbance. Per the docs, Branch admitted to slapping Carney in the face "one or two times," though the 42-year-old Black Keys musician did not have any visible injuries.
According to the outlet, Branch was taken into custody and had her bail set at $1,000, but was released early because she's currently breastfeeding her and Carney's 6-month-old daughter, Willie. The pair also shares a son, Rhys, who will turn four later this month. Additionally, Branch is mom to a 17-year-old daughter, Owen, from her first marriage to Teddy Landau.
The couple's separation and Branch's arrest follow cheating claims. In a quickly deleted tweet posted on Wednesday, Branch accused Carney of cheating on her over the past several months while she stayed home to care for their infant daughter.
In a statement shared with ET Friday, Branch said she's totally "devastated" for both herself and her family.
"To say that I am totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family," the "Everywhere" singer shared. "The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and now I must figure out how to move forward. With such small children, I ask for privacy and kindness.”
Branch and Carney began dating in 2015 after meeting at a GRAMMY party in Los Angeles. The two got engaged in July 2017 and tied the knot at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans in April 2019.
