Audrina Patridge's Ex, Corey Bohan, Won't Be Charged With Domestic Violence
Updated Sept. 26, 2017, 9:30 a.m. PT: Due to a lack of evidence, Audrina Patridge's husband Corey Bohan will not be charged with domestic violence, Us Weekly reports. The couple's divorce is still moving forward, and Patridge's restraining order against Bohan will stay in effect.
Patridge detailed years of physical and emotional abuse in her divorce petition, but Bohan is denying everything according to a source. Meanwhile, Patridge is staying with family even though she owns the house they lived in together. Sources say a prenuptial agreement will protect Patridge's wealth and ownership of the house as the divorce moves forward.
Us Weekly does make the important note that while the allegations of domestic violence may be dropped from Patridge and Bohan's divorce proceedings, the case of domestic violence will be pursued in court in a separate case. "A rep for Patridge told Us Weekly on Monday that a family domestic violence case is still open outside of the District Attorney's office. 'Audrina is putting on a brave face, but these exchanges between Audrina and Corey are court ordered to take place at a police station for her protection. There is still a family law domestic violence case open.'"
As more details emerge in Audrina Patridge's divorce from Corey Bohan, people who are reportedly close to the former couple are sharing some terrifying details that they say pushed Patridge to file for the divorce and a restraining order from Bohan.
"Over the years Audrina has had many instances where she’s been scared [by Corey] but she finally felt she couldn’t deal with the emotional abuse and fear any longer," an alleged insider told People magazine. "She realized that she needed to end things for good. She got the restraining order because she was afraid how he would retaliate when she filed for divorce, so she had to get some additional protection."
Patridge filed the restraining order for both herself and the 1-year-old daughter she and Bohan share, stating in court documents that she's afraid Bohan will take their daughter to his native Australia. A judge has ordered him to stay at least 100 feet away from Patridge, their daughter and their dog, other than during supervised visits with the baby three times per week.
In court documents, Patridge outlined some of the alleged incidents that pushed her to file for divorce and the restraining order, including one that she described as "the final straw."
"[Corey] was being very aggressive with me, arguing, following me into every single room of the house, repeating himself, getting really close to me as his temper escalated, all because I refused to tell him which person told me that he cheated on me with another woman," Patridge wrote. "I became frightened and said I would talk to him but he needed to let me take our daughter to my grandma’s house or my parents’ house so she wasn’t in the cross-fire."
She continued, "He wasn’t listening and kept following me, cussing, yelling at me. I had Kirra in my arms, trying to leave. [Corey] locked the door and pushed me back with her in my arms. I begged him to please let me go and take Kirra somewhere else, I didn’t want her around all this."
Patridge's petition outlines a number of events during which she claims Bohan threatened her or himself with violence, often in front of their daughter.
