American Idol's Constantine Maroulis Releases Lengthy Statement After Domestic Violence Arrest
“Late last night 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. He paid a small bail and was released,” the statement began.
“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,” the statement continued.
