American Idol season 4 alum, Constantine Maroulis, was arrested for domestic violence, according to a TMZ report. Constantine was arrested Wednesday morning for allegedly kicking the mother of his 4 year old daughter in the groin, but Constantine insists he was defending himself.
Law enforcement sources tell us, the girlfriend called 911 from their home in Wyckoff, New Jersey claiming he threw her to the ground and kicked her in the groin.
Cops responded and cuffed Constantine. They took him to jail where he quickly bailed out.
Constantine’s rep tells TMZ, he was acting defensively because she attacked him. The singer is adamant that he did NOT kick her, and says that the argument started after he told her he was leaving her. The rep says there is evidence proving today’s incident was self-defense and the rep adds there are well documented prior instances where she was violent.
Maroulis claims he was injured on his right thigh when she hurled something at him.
I hope the baby wasn’t around to witness that. But she probably was. Sad.
