“Real Housewives of Potomac” star Ashley Darby has had a rough year. Her husband, Michael Darby, has been arrested and charged with sexual assault against a crew member that was filming for the fourth season of the show.
The cameraman named Orville Palmer was doing his job when he says that the real estate mogul groped his butt and followed with a flirtatious look. The employee asked Michael to stop then reported the incident to his supervisor.
TMZ reports that Darby was arrested and booked on felony assault and misdemeanor improper sexual contact. He faces up to 11 years in prison if found guilty.
This is not the first time Michael Darby made a scandalous headline. The 59-year-old was exposed for sending inappropriate photos to another man.
In 2016, a male from London claimed that he met up with the reality star and spent two days together. Additionally, the Australia native purchased expensive gifts for his temporary lover.
The accuser sent in receipts to the blog formerly known as Fameolous of screenshots of their conversation along with the photo of what appeared to be Michael in his underwear.
“RHOP” co-star Karen Huger mentioned the scandal during her feud with Ashley.
The 30-year-old denied that the man in the photos was her husband.
She told Bravo that Karen was using the fabricated story to deflect Huger’s rumored affair with a man that is known by the nickname ‘blue eyes.’
“That internet rumor was a fabricated story made up by someone who has never met my husband and chose a random white man to pretend to be Michael. On the other hand, there have been many sightings of Karen doing her thang around Potomac with this fellow. But like I said – if Karen and Ray have an arrangement, more power to them!”
What do you think about this new allegation? The fourth season of “Real Housewives of Potomac” will air next year.
