Slade Smiley’s child support court hearing turned into a drama worthy of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Orange County reality series on Friday.
Smiley owes $110,000 in back child support to Michelle Arroyo and was accompanied to court by his reality TV star girlfriend Gretchen Rossi.
The hearing was continued until September.
But there was tension in the court room from the start. Gretchen’s ex boyfriend Jay Photoglou showed up for the proceedings and Slade was furious, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Photoglou and Rossi have waged their own court war, suing each other after a long-running public feud.
Smiley was incensed to see Photoglou in the courtroom and authorities were involved in keeping the parties separate.
Slade then asked the judge to have Photoglou removed the courtroom. All parties not directly involved in the matter, including Rossi, were told to leave court.
