Jeremy London was recently charged with domestic battery for an incident with his estranged wife last year, but exclusively spoke with the actor who said he's trusting the courts will learn the truth — that he was falsely accused.

"Many men are falsely accused and the system is usually able to discern fact from fiction... While it's troublesome I wouldn't have it any other way."

Jeremy's estranged wife, Melissa Cunningham, accused the former Party of Five star of assaulting her in November after an altercation at her Palm Springs home, but sources told the entire thing was staged on Melissa's behalf and she purposely "created the drama" for a reality-TV show she's trying to get on. has also learned that while legal documents list Jeremy as "homeless," the 39-year-old is in fact just in the middle of making a move back to Los Angeles.

"He's not homeless! He is changing his living arrangement from Palm Springs to LA and is currently apartment hunting," a source close to Jeremy exclusively told us.

"He is staying with his brother until he finds a suitable place in LA, which he hopes will be by the first of the month."
