The Real Housewives of Orange County star, Gina Kirschenheiter, is going through a tough season. She’s dealing with legal troubles that stem from her being pulled over for drinking under the influence. She was reuniting with her husband until he got physical with her and was arrested for domestic violence. Now her estranged husband, Matt Kirschenheiter, has been let go from his job at investment management firm PIMCO following his domestic violence arrest, according to Radar Online. A company spokesperson stated that he was “let go.” Laura Batty, another spokesperson for PIMCO, confirmed that he is no longer with the company. According to sources, the recent reports of domestic violence are set to be discussed next season on the RHOC.
Sources said, “Matt was recently terminated from PIMCO after the incident with Gina. He is devastated, and does not know how he is going to provide for his family.” Matt was arrested on June 22 for suspicion of felony domestic violence. He hasn’t been formally charged with a crime yet, and Gina got a temporary restraining order.
Gina said that Matt told her he was “going to f**king kill” her while he was screaming and beating her. Gina said, “He ripped my bra strap off, then took a pillow and hit me on the side of the head with it hard. My ears rang. I begged him to stop to calm down but he kept hitting me.”
An Orange County judge granted Gina a temporary restraining order. Gina was also granted “legal and physical custody” of their young children: Nicholas, 7, Sienna, 5, and Luca, 4. Matt is now allowed supervised visits with their kids. The next court hearing is set for August 14th.
Wow! This is very sad and shocking news. My thoughts and prayers are with Gina. Domestic violence is never okay. I was glad they were working on their relationship, especially because they have young children. Then these incidents of domestic violence occurred and it’s very unsettling. I’m hoping for the best for Gina and her family!
