AceShowbiz - "90 Day Fiance" star Yvette Arellano a.k.a. Yve Arellano faces a legal trouble. The reality TV star was charged with battery and assault on August 15 in connection with alleged domestic violence.
Yve, who is married to estranged husband Mohamed Abdelhamed, was charged with one count of assault against a household member. New Mexico court records, which were obtained by Page Six, also revealed that she's charged on one count of battery (household member).
In a statement to PEOPLE, Yve's representative, Dominique Enchinton of Dominton Talent House, clarified that Yve was not formally arrested. "The domestic abuse allegations have been falsified by Mohamed," Dominique said, "Mohamed and the woman he has been cheating on Yve with have discussed his options from the very beginning."
"They specifically discussed a U-Visa and how Mohamed could qualify for this just in case Yve found out about his indiscretions," the rep alleged. He also claimed the alleged abuse was "false and just a ploy to keep him in the U.S."
The rep continued, "Yve was not arrested on August 15 or any other day." He also denied that "Yve has never been abusive toward Mohamed and just wants this chapter in her life to be done so she can move forward."
The TLC reality star has a bond arraignment hearing scheduled for September 6.
The alleged woes came three weeks after Mohamed was involved in a digital cheating scandal. He was accused of texting inappropriate messages to another woman shortly after he and the 48-year-old got married.
Addressing the cheating scandal, the Egypt native admitted in the Sunday night, August 21 episode of "90 Day Fiance" tell-all that he did text other women. He said he met a woman online, and while he initially thought they were "just friends," their rapport turned into something "bigger."
"You know, it's very shocking, raw, disappointing, saddening," Yve said of his infidelity. "He chose to spend his time focused on starting other relationships and engaging in activity that a married man should not be engaging in."
The Albuquerque native then thanked her fans for their support, posting on Instagram Story on Sunday, "Thank you ladies for sharing your stories of infidelity, heartaches, & pain. Obviously, we are not alone. Why commitment for some isn't a commitment. There's lots of healing that needs to happen in this world on so many levels. If you don't want to be exclusively just say so, so people can make their own informed decisions…." Meanwhile, Mohamed hinted at their split on social media as he wrote on Monday, "A lot of people asking, why I'm not saying my part of the story, that's because I was trying my best to end my relationship with respect, that's all."
