Michelle Branch, Patrick Carney Agree To Suspend Divorce Proceedings, Attempt Reconciliation

Michelle Branch and Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney have agreed to suspend their divorce proceedings for at least six months.

“All proceedings in this case are hereby suspended without prejudice,” an order signed by Davidson County Third Circuit Court Judge Phillip Robinson reads, according to Rolling Stone. “During the period of suspension the parties may participate in counseling services to effectuate reconciliation and/or may resume living together as husband and wife and their acts and conduct in doing so shall not be determined condonation of any prior misconduct and all acts or actions by the parties prior to the entry of this order shall remain and constitute grounds for divorce.”

On August 11, Branch announced her separation from Carney after accusing him of infidelity. She was arrested on a domestic assault charge the next day, having allegedly slapped Carney over his alleged infidelity. The charge was later dropped.

The couple, who were married in April 2019 and have two children, parted ways after three years of marriage.

In a since-deleted post on Twitter, Branch wrote, “Just found out my husband cheated on me . while I was home with our 6-month-old daughter.”

“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,” People quoted Branch as saying in a statement.

Meanwhile, in a recent interview with Newsweek, Branch said, “I wouldn’t even call Patrick my ex yet. We’re, you know, we’re working through it by the day.”
