As first reported, Branch filed for divorce on August 12 hours after she was released from jail. The singer was arrested after Carney called cops on her for slapping him in his face at their Tennessee home.

During questioning, Branch admitted to slapping her husband and was arrested for domestic assault. She later accused him of cheating on her during the marriage.

After the arrest, Branch said she was “totally devastated” by the series of events.

“To say that I am totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family. The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and now I must figure out how to move forward. With such small children, I ask for privacy and kindness,” she said.
