New York City real estate bandleader Chris Brinkley, 37, has reportedly made millions after suing his former girlfriend and roommate for assault and battery and threatening to kill her.
According to TMZ, Brinkly sued his ex-girlfriend, who has since been placed on paid administrative leave, and her roommate, who was also injured during the incident.
Brinklyn also filed a $10 million civil suit against the two roommates, alleging that they were the aggressors.
Brinksley is the husband of Nicole Kidman, and has appeared on the show for the past two seasons.
“I have no idea how this all happened,” Kidman told TMZ.
“We have nothing to hide.”
“As the mother of three young children, it was never my intention to hurt my former girlfriend or her roommate.
I am shocked and heartbroken by this.”
According the complaint, the alleged assault happened in August 2015 when Kidman and Brinkleys ex-lover, the former singer of the band The Black Eyed Peas, were having a late night drinking session.
According to the suit, Kidman said that the couple had a heated argument in which Brinkes “began to slap her in the face.”
Kidman alleges that Brinkys then pushed her into the bushes and then started yelling “this is not happening,” according to TMZ.
Brinkerley allegedly began hitting his ex, yelling “I don’t want no trouble,” and punching her in her face.
The lawsuit then says that Brinks was arrested on charges of assault and domestic battery, but the New York Police Department has since disputed the charges.
Brinkingley has since filed a countersuit against the alleged victim.
In addition to Kidman’s suit, Brinks reportedly also filed the first lawsuit against the woman, claiming that she was a liar and a liar’s ass.
Kidman also alleges that she is a victim of domestic violence.
Brinkley’s attorney, Joseph Gazzara, told TMZ that his client has been drinking since November of last year.
Gazzara said that Brinkyley has been sober for nearly two years and is not currently suffering from alcohol addiction.
