Variety reports The Bachelor and The Bachelorette creator Mike Fleiss has been accused of attacking his pregnant wife Laura Fleiss at their home in Hawaii. The incident allegedly took place on July 4.
According to documents obtained by Variety, Laura has since filed for an emergency domestic violence restraining order against Mike. She alleges Mike became enraged over pregnancy and attacked her, demanding she have an abortion.
"While we were at our house in Kauai, Mike demanded that I get an abortion. Our son Ben was in the house, seated in another room nearby. Mike told me, 'If you have an abortion, then we can just go back to the way we were,'" Laura claims in the documents.
Laura's statement further alleges her husband "grabbed her body" and "forcibly pinned her up against the wall." She says he also threatened to punch her in the face and stole her cell phone.
"While Mike has frequently been verbally abusive towards me during our marriage, in recent weeks, he has become enraged, due to the fact I am pregnant with our second child. Mike told me many times that he did not want us to have a second child. He also repeatedly told me throughout our marriage, and prior to our marriage, that he knew he would 'have to have' one child with me because I was 26-years-old when we got married, did not yet have any children, and he knew I wanted to have a family. Mike, however, being 55-years old, did not want to have more than one child together," Laura's statement continues.
Laura was granted the temporary restraining order pending a court hearing on August 6th. Neither Mike or Laura have addressed the matter publicly.
