Gina Kirschenheiter was in court with Matt yesterday to hammer out the terms of their divorce. By all accounts, the drama continued as it has all summer.
Matt is facing criminal charges after Gina Kirschenheiter filed charges after an alleged physical attack on her in her home. According to Gina, Matt showed up at her house and banged on the door before letting himself in. He threatened to kill her, ripped her clothes off and proceeded to beat the crap out of her. Gina pled with him to stop reminding him the kids were asleep upstairs. But, he tried to strangle her. So, she ran screaming to the neighbors house. Matt dragged her back to her house across the driveway. He was arrested and after his release began harassing her by phone blaming her for his arrest. After the arrest, Gina was granted a restraining order.
Gina Kirschenheiter Sobbed In Court
Gina has stated that Matt has a problem with drugs and alcohol. Matt denies this and says the only one of them who has ever had issues with alcohol or drugs is Gina. She had three moving violations in the first five weeks of 2019.
Matt also says that Gina has been vindictive about child custody and uses the divorce for her storyline.
“Petitioner has been acting erratically and in a way that I believe is unfortunately more based on a ‘storyline’ for her reality television show and not rooted in the best interest of our children.”
And also,“Petitioner has historically been extremely vindictive and has used the children when she becomes angry or wants to control me. Petitioner demanding that my visitation with our children by ‘revoked’ simply because she was going to be required to pay her own car payment is consistent with her historical vindictive mature and using the children as leverage.”
In all fairness the custody battle and the divorce are the primary issues in her life right now. And her life is supposed to be her storyline.
Matt’s Restraining Order Extended
Regardless, a custody agreement was reached yesterday, but not disclosed to the public. Gina has decided to keep her married name, Kirschenheiter, in order to have the same name as her children. The official reason for the divorce was listed as “irreconcilable” differences.
Gina’s temporary restraining order was extended to January 15, 2020. Additionally, there is a court date on that day concerning the domestic violence claims against Matt. Matt has lost his job as a result of his arrest.
Witnesses said that Gina was sobbing as she left the courtroom. There was no mention of anyone being in court with Gina to support her. They will be officially divorced on December 31, 2019.
