Gretchen Rossi may no longer be part of the Real Housewives of Orange County but that doesn’t mean her life is drama free!
According to a report filed with the Newport Beach Police Department, Gretchen’s long-time boyfriend Slade Smiley was allegedly assaulted by her former friend Jay Photoglou.
“At 2133 hours I was dispatched to the A’s Restaurant in Newport Beach to reference to an assault and battery that had just occurred on a customer. I arrived on the scene and contacted the victim, later identified as Slade Smiley, who was standing outside the restaurant,” the report filed by the arresting officer on the scene claims.
The report says Slade was “walking to the valet stand located at the north end of A Restaurant parking lot” when “Photoglou exited the restaurant and struck Smiley on the back of the head.”
Following the incident, the Police were called and Jay was arrested for assault and battery.
Apparently, this isn’t Slade and Gretchen’s first issue with Jay as the couple has been battling him in court for years.
Court documents show that Gretchen has accused Jay as being a friend turned stalker, who leaked naked photos of her online, threatened her with violence, spread false rumors about her, and cost her a spot on RHOC and a $500,000 a year income.
A jury awarded Gretchen $523,000 in damages but Jay filed bankruptcy in an attempt to get the judgment thrown out.
However, Gretchen refuses to let him off the hook and the two are battling it out in court again.
Jay is due in court to face the assault and battery charges on June 5.
