Charges of violence and assault have been brought against Yvette “Yve” Arellano.
The subject of the 90 Day Fiancé, who is married to her estranged spouse Mohamed Abdelhamed, was approached by police on August 15 in relation to alleged domestic abuse, per a police report that PEOPLE was able to obtain.
Battery and Assault Against a Household Member were the accusations made against Yve by the Albuquerque Police Department. According to the police report, the hearing for the reality TV personality is set for September 6.
Yve was not formally detained, according to Dominique Enchinton of Dominton Talent House, who is Yve’s representative.
“The domestic abuse allegations have been falsified by Mohammed,” Enchinton said, adding that the alleged abuse was “false and just a ploy to keep him in the US.”
“Yve was not arrested on Aug. 15 or any other day,” Enchinton added. “Yve has never been abusive toward Mohammed and just wants this chapter in her life to be done so she can move forward.”
The allegations were announced shortly after Yve, 48, disclosed Mohamed, 25, had been cheating on her with another lady on Sunday night’s 90 Day Fiancé Tell-All episode. When the messages came out after the Tell-All was recorded, TLC had to include a clip of Yve explaining the situation.
“You know, it’s very shocking, raw, disappointing, saddening,” Yve said of Mohamed’s cheating at the end of the episode. “He chose to spend his time focused on starting other relationships and engaging in activity that a married man should not be engaging in. I asked him if I could see his phone, and that happened and I saw inappropriate things. I saw pictures and calls, and put the pieces together.”
In the episode, Mohamed revealed their online relationship, adding that at initially, the woman was merely a “lovely” buddy. He acknowledged that at that point, their relationship began to grow.
Since the revelation, Yve has been sharing notes about infidelity on Instagram, and engaging in conversations with followers about the importance of loyalty. “Thank you ladies for sharing your stories of infidelity, heartaches & pain,” she wrote in an Instagram story on Sunday night.
“Obviously we are not alone. Why commitment for some isn’t a commitment. There’s lots of healing that needs to happen in this world on so many levels. If you don’t want to be exclusive just say so, so people can make their own informed decisions…” she added.
Yve welcomed Mohamed, who had just arrived from Egypt, when they first connected online. Despite a 23-year age difference, the couple decided to continue their relationship in person with the aim of getting married and Mohamed obtaining a green card.
However, as TLC viewers could see, their relationship wasn’t always easy. Yve and Mohamed frequently disagreed over cultural customs, such as Mohamed’s demand that a bidet be erected as soon as he arrived. An argument first started because Yve didn’t have a suitable bidet, and it subsequently escalated because she was alone in the house with the installation man.
“In Islam, that’s not right,” he said. “A man and a woman can not be alone. If I am home, you should call me. If I’m not home, and you need necessary something [sic], call me. I will figure it out.”
