Matt Jordan has displayed violent behavior since he was dating Kenya Moore and included on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. While the model is enjoying her happily ever after, Matt has been landing himself in hot water time and time again.
According to the complaint filed on the day of his recent arrest, Matt punched his current girlfriend with a closed fist, snatched her cigarettes away, and attempted to throw them on the top of a Denny’s roof!
This specific incident has led him to seek treatment at a rehabilitation facility that treats everything from behavioral health to substance abuse. Jordan was arrested on July 27 for aggravated assault, theft, and threatening and intimidating and shipped to rehab just three days later.
This is hardly the first time that he’s received negative press since Kenya broke things off with him. A woman accused him of rape in 2017, he infamously got into a fight with Peter Thomas, and he was arrested for failure to appear in court in June of this year.
This comes years after viewers witnessed his explosive temper on RHOA.
The two were an on-again off-again couple until Moore ended things for good.
In a past episode of the show, Kenya reflected on what went wrong in their relationship: ‘I just need to let Matt go. We have become toxic to each other. I need to grow and part of that growth is just knowing when it’s gone and to just walk away. And that may have made him feel emasculated. I’m done. I just need to let Matt go. We have become toxic to each other. I need to grow and part of that growth is just knowing when it’s gone and to just walk away.’
Hopefully, the rehab center will allow Matt to change his violent ways and step foot on a better path.
