THEIR SURPRISING DIVORCE

While Hollywood divorces are not uncommon, news that Bryan's wife of 14 years was no longer with him came as a shock. The actor announced their divorce in a now-deleted Instagram post, in which he reflected on the incredible journey they had together as a couple and as parents.

The actor's girlfriend also alleged that he took away her phone when he saw that she was trying to dial 911 for help.

The actor emphasized that he and Matros intended to work together to co-parent their kids and remain dear friends.

GIRLFRIEND AND ARREST

Not long after Bryan's divorce's announcement came out, the actor was back in the eye of the media. This time, for assaulting his new 27-year-old girlfriend.

According to the woman, she and Bryan were arguing when he suddenly wrapped his hands around her neck and attempted to strangle her.
