So much for that “Malcolm in the Middle” kid we all remember.
TMZ is reporting that Frankie Muniz and girlfriend Elycia Turnbow are in the middle of a colossal he said, she said battle of domestic violence.
According to a police report filed in Phoeniz, AZ on Friday (Feb. 11), the couple argued about “prior relationships,” leading Muniz to grab a gun and hold it to his head “possibly with the intent of committing suicide.”
Turnbow says she became frightened and called a bandmate to bring her boyfriend to the hospital.
Muniz however says that he was taken to the hospital after falling and hitting his head as a result of Turnbow screaming at him. He denied holding a gun to his head, but does acknowledge “I grabbed the case, but not the gun… it isn’t even loaded.”
After his 10 PM hospital release, Muniz returned to the house and allegedly punched Turnbow in the back of the head and threw her against a bedroom wall.
Muniz’ defense? “I love her too much. She is the woman I want to marry.”
He also says that Turnbow woke him by “yelling at him and hitting him in the face,” before she supposedly fell to the ground and kicked the bedroom door.
According to police there are no visible injuries and both parties were told they’d go to jail if it ever happens again.
Yikes. Can anyone recommend a good relationship counselor?
