Audrina Patridge Files For Divorce From Corey Bohan, Cites Domestic Violence
Reality star Audrina Patridge has filed for divorce from Corey Bohan after just 10 months of marriage.
AUDRINA PATRIDGE & COREY BOHAN SPLIT
Patridge is accusing Bohan of domestic violence and has received a restraining order. The couple share a 1-year-old daughter Kirra Max. “Audrina’s number one priority is her daughter and she asks for privacy at this time,” says a rep for Patridge. Bohan has not commented.
Court documents say that Patridge sought protection for herself and her daughter, stating that Bohan “has become increasingly possessive, angry, agitated and jealous… His aggressive behavior,” she continues, “usually escalates whenever I am paying attention to work obligations, rather than to him. When we are apart, he texts me obsessively, rattling my nerves and making it difficult for me to concentrate on my work commitments.”
The documents also say that Bohan had begun to harass and scare Patridge. “His harassing behavior has recently become so extreme that I physically separated from him a few weeks ago. I am fearful of [Bohan]’s temper because he cannot control his swearing and personal attacks on me, even when in the presence of our young daughter. Furthermore, as set forth below, his aggressiveness last month became so extreme he became physically violent.”
Patridge says she is afraid that Bohan might try to abduct Kirra and take her to Australia, where his family lives. “I am very concerned, especially since he has our daughter’s birth certificate, that he might obtain a passport for her and take her to Australia without my consent,” she states.
Other incidents Patridge cites are Bohan’s ransacking of her possessions and going through her computer files. “I looked in his suitcase and found our marriage certificate and Kirra’s birth certificate,” she said. “I confronted him about this and he laughed at me.” She describes another event when he got physical with her when she accused him of cheating. She refused to say who had seen him with another woman, and he shoved her while she was holding their child. “I begged him to please let me go and take Kirra somewhere else,” Patridge said. “I didn’t want her around all this. He then picked up my backpack and purse and threw everything on the floor. He started punching and hitting himself on the head. Then he punched a hole in our bedroom door. I was very frightened and started screaming and covered Kirra’s eyes and ears, but she started crying and screaming. [Bohan] then let me pass, and ran downstairs in front of me and grabbed a big metal canister, saying if I left right now, he was going to bash his head in with the canister right in front of us-or better yet he would do it in the street so everyone could hear that it was all my fault.”
The court documents state multiple other encounters between Patridge and Bohan, including one that involved the police. “To be clear [the domestic violence restraining order] is not a strategic filing, it’s very difficult for people to go public with these issues,” Patridge’s attorney Elizabeth Nigro explained. “It wasn’t done to hurt Corey or to gain an advantage, it was done to protect their child and to protect Ms. Patridge and that’s it.”
Patridge, The Hills actress, and Bohan, a pro BMX rider, have been together on and off since 2008. They wed in Nov. 2016, and the reality star gave birth to Kirra about a year after they were engaged.
