In a statement to Variety, the Nashville police department confirmed Michelle Branch had been arrested for domestic assault.

After the announcement that she was splitting from her husband of three years, 'The Black Keys' drummer Patrick Carney, Branch was arrested.

The arrest has first reported by another source, which added that Branch had slapped Carney 'one or two times.' Branch was released on $1,000 bail.

A wedding was held in 2019 between Branch and Carney. While announcing the split, Branch said in a statement: 'To say that I am devastated doesn't even begin to describe how I feel for myself and my family.'

My world has been turned upside down, and now I have to figure out how to move forward. I ask for privacy and kindness with such small children.'

Branch alleged that Carney cheated on her on Twitter before announcing the split. There are two children between the two musicians and they live in Nashville.

With her bestselling albums 'The Spirit Room' and 'Hotel Paper,' Branch became a household name in the early 2000s. The former album included her breakout single 'Everywhere,' which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year.

Her duet with Santana, 'The Game of Love,' won her a Grammy Award for pop collaboration with vocals in 2022.

'The Trouble with Fever,' the branch's fourth studio album, is scheduled for release on Sept. 16. New York City's Webster Hall will be one of the stops on the musician's fall tour.
