Former 'Selling Sunset' reality star Christine Quinn seeking divorce after husband Christian Dumontet arrested twice over domestic violence incident

 March 22, 2024

Christine Quinn, a former star of the Netflix real estate reality show "Selling Sunset," is reportedly planning to file for divorce from her husband, Christian Dumontet, following a domestic violence incident this week, according to the Daily Beast.

Dumontet, 44, was arrested twice within 48 hours this week, first on Tuesday for allegedly assaulting Quinn, 35, and then again Wednesday evening for violating a restraining order she obtained against him when he returned to their shared home in Los Angeles, California.

Preparing to file for divorce

Us Weekly reported exclusively on Thursday that an insider source said Quinn is now preparing for a divorce from Dumontet, whom she married in 2019 and with whom she shares a 3-year-old son named Christian.

"Christine Quinn is planning on leaving Christian," the unnamed source told the outlet. "She’s planning on filing for divorce."

The couple were initially introduced by a mutual friend and their romance and wedding were documented on the hit Netflix reality series about a high-end real estate brokerage firm that Quinn has since left to form her own realty company with her husband.

Arrested twice within 48 hours

According to CNN, Dumontet was first arrested on Tuesday and was charged with assault with a deadly weapon following an alleged domestic dispute with Quinn that resulted in an unspecified injury to their child.

Officer J. Chaves, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department, said of the Tuesday incident, "The victim and the suspect were involved in a domestic dispute when the suspect threw a bag containing a glass bottle at the victim and missed, but hit the victim’s child causing injury."

An unnamed source claimed that Quinn took her son to the hospital in an ambulance and further revealed that, in addition to obtaining a protective order against Dumontet, the mother and child have not returned to their L.A. home but instead "remain in a separate, safe location."

Dumontet's second arrest came around 11:30 pm on Wednesday, just hours after he'd been released from jail for the prior day's incident, when he returned to the shared residence and was busted by the LAPD for violating the restraining order.

Released twice on bond; two court dates set

According to the New York Post's Page Six, Dumontet was first arrested Tuesday afternoon wearing just a bathrobe and no shoes and spent that night in jail.

He was released on Wednesday on a $30,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on April 10 for an arraignment hearing on the felony domestic violence assault with a deadly weapon charge.

Dumontet was then arrested again later that evening when he returned to the L.A. home and now faces an additional misdemeanor charge for violating the restraining order Quinn obtained against him, even though she wasn't at the home when he showed up.

He was then released from custody again on Thursday morning on an unspecified bond and is due in court for an arraignment on that second charge on April 11.

The outlet noted that a heavy police presence was observed at the home on Wednesday, before Dumontet arrived, as officers had been called by somebody -- reportedly not Quinn -- to conduct a "building search" and ensure that there were no active threats in the residence, after which the officers reported that there was "no issue" found at the home.
