Just weeks after reports came out saying the couple had reconciled, a new report is revealing Matt, who has never appeared on the Bravo series, was arrested on charges relating to domestic violence on June 22.
According to The Blast, Matt was booked into an Orange County jail and released the next morning on June 23. Jail records show that his bail was set at $0.
Following his arrest, Gina went to court to seek a protective order against him as well as to request a hearing to discuss the domestic violence allegations amid their ongoing divorce.
Court records show that Gina filed for the restraining order yesterday, on Monday, June 24, in the Orange County Superior Court. She named Matt as the respondent.
An emergency hearing was reportedly held on the same day.
Just earlier this month, Gina strongly hinted that she had reconciled with Matt when she shared a sweet birthday post to him on Instagram with their wedding photo. She referred to him as ‘her person.’

Happy birthday to the man who has held my hand for the last 14 years despite the ups and downs. Thanks for being the best father to our kids, and the best friend a girl could ask for. Wouldn’t want to take on this crazy life with anyone else. Like you said, “I’m your person and you’re mine.” ❤️ Happy Birthday Matthew. 🎂
During her first season on the RHOC, Gina always remained coy on why she and Matt were getting a divorce. She often confused her castmates as she revealed they got along great and would occasionally hook up following their split.
However, during the RHOC reunion, she shared more details about their split, stating that she simply felt unloved by her husband.
“When we moved away from Long Island, our relationship just wasn’t enough. It was the little, the big, everything,” she explained. “He’s just not that person who compliments you and builds you up and makes you feel great.
