Ashley Darby is standing up for her man, The “Real Housewives of Potomac” star is denying the recent report that Michael Darby was arrested.
According to multiple outlets, a cameraman that was filming for season four of “RHOP” told their supervisor that the 58-year-old man grabbed and groped his butt. The realtor was then arrested and booked on charges of sexual assault.
After the news broke on TMZ, Radar Online was able to get a hold of the actual report that was filed by the cameraman named Orville Palmer.
The statement read: “I was operating the camera filming for the TV show ‘Real Housewives of Potomac.’ As I walked out to the pool patio area, Michael Darby grabbed and groped my butt several times. As I turned around he smiled and gave me a flirtatious look. Since I was holding the camera, I placed the camera on the pool/patio floor. Respectfully I told defendant Michael Darby to not touch my butt. After talking with Michael Darby, I told my supervisor on duty about the sexual assault by Michael Darby towards me.”
The reality star is allegedly set to appear in court on October 16. A source said that Bravo has suspended Darby until the incident is finished being investigated.
However, Ashley is telling a different story.
The 30-year-old uploaded a photo of Michael to her Instagram Story with a caption that read: “No charges filed. No arrest made. No Bravo suspension. No worries. We’ll keep you posted.”
Ashley and Michael have had a tough year.
After the two decided to separate in order for Ashley to set boundaries with her mother, they got back together and started trying for a baby. Unfortunately, she suffered a miscarriage.
The two were also struggling to keep their Australian -themed restaurant open. Bravo has not released an official statement on the situation.
