Justin Bobby Supports Audrina Patridge After She Files For Divorce & Praises Her Strength
On Thursday, TMZ reported that Audrina Patridge filed for divorce from Corey Bohan on Wednesday after reportedly filing a temporary restraining order against him on Monday. The couple has a one-year-old daughter, Kirra Max Bohan, who was born in June 2016. After learning the news, Justin Brescia aka "Justin Bobby" commented on Patridge's divorce news to E! News. The former star of The Hills, who was referred to as "Justin Bobby" on the show and was known for dating Patridge on the MTV series, said,
"My first reaction is the thought of the child, obviously. Me, coming from a separated family at a young age, it had its perks and it had its hindrances. My second thought is if she's OK, because she's been a longtime friend. My thoughts and my heart go out to her and her little one at this time."
"I don't feel good about it. The baby is so cute and beautiful. Thank God Audrina has such a strong foundation with her family. They just reap family values to the highest degree, is what I've learned over the years. She will be fine and the baby will be fine."
Patridge's family was featured on The Hills from time to time and as Brescia mentioned, they appeared to be a very tight-knit family. It also seemed like Patridge had a strong bond with her sister, Casey Patridge, while they filmed the reality series. They still seem to be super close. It seems her family is most definitely a great support system for the 32-year-old during what sounds like an extremely difficult time.
A source told People Thursday, "Audrina is leaning on her family. She is extremely close with her parents [Lynne and Mark], brother [Marky] and sister and they are all supporting her." The source added, "They’re a very tight family and protective of her. They just want what’s best for Audrina and Kirra."
As reported by TMZ, the temporary restraining order is reportedly due to alleged domestic violence. People also reported that Patridge filed for a child abduction prevention order against Bohan. Bustle has reached out to Patridge's rep for comment on the reports, but did not receive an immediate response; Bohan could not be reached at the time of publication. Bustle also reached out to the Superior Court of Orange County, but has yet to receive a response. On Thursday, Patridge's rep told People, "Audrina’s number one concern is for her daughter and she asks for privacy at this time."
Per court documents obtained by E! News, Patridge alleges Bohan had become "increasingly possessive, angry, agitated and jealous" over her travel schedule. "His aggressive behavior usually escalates whenever I am paying attention to work obligations, rather than to him," E! reports Patridge claims in the documents. "When we are apart, he texts me obsessively, rattling my nerves and making it difficult for me to concentrate on my work commitments. His harassing behavior has recently become so extreme that I physically separated from him a few weeks ago." According to E!, she also alleges in the court papers that she's "fearful of his temper," that he "became physically violent" in the last month and that he "threatened to kill himself."
According to TMZ, Patridge called the police on Sept. 15 and reportedly claimed child protective services paid her a visit. (The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services does not comment or confirm any possible cases or involvement with clients due to confidentiality laws.) The restraining order she filed for on Sept. 18 has since been granted, per TMZ.
According to E! News, a court hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 6.
