Constantine Maroulis Releases Statement About Domestic Violence Arrest
Constantine Maroulis, who became a Broadway sensation in the musical Rock of Ages, has released a lengthy statement to JustJared – giving his side of the altercation, which led to his arrest on a domestic violence charge.
Maroulis was taken into custody and released after paying a “small bail”, and now he’s addressing the drama via his legal representative. The statement reads: “Mr. Maroulis told Angelina Reed, his live-in girlfriend and mother of their four-year-old child, that he was leaving her because of her continued instability. She became angry and began attacking him. During the course of the attack she hit him with her fists and threw numerous objects at him. He sustained a bruise and cut on his right thigh. He did not throw her to the ground or kick her in the groin during this incident. “He consequently left their home to protect himself and to diffuse the situation. Some time later the local police came and arrested him for domestic abuse.” The statement continues: “When all the facts come out it will become clear that Mr. Maroulis was the victim here and Ms. Reed was the aggressor. “Ms. Reed has a history of attacks on Mr. Maroulis and his property and these have previously been reported to law enforcement. Mr. Maroulis intends to defend himself vigorously, as well as protect his child, both in the court of law and, as necessary, in the court of public opinion and is confident that he will be completely vindicated when the truth is known. “He thanks his family, friends, fans and supporters for their continued faith and trust in him during this challenging time and assures them that their belief in him is warranted.” Since releasing the statement, Maroulis has won a restraining order against his now ex. Reed has been ordered to stay away from the house they once lived in, but she still has access to the couple’s daughter.
