Sheriff Deputies answered a call regarding a domestic situation and were dispatched to the Chesapeake home around 9:30pm Saturday night. A statement from the sheriff’s office from Dorsey says he suffered minor injuries when the 30-year-old actress hit him in the head and face. Dorsey submitted video to back up his claim. Reports also cited the couple were walking with their 2-year-old son, Josey at the time of the incident.

If convicted, Rivera faces a $500.00 fine and a maximum 12 months in jail. After the arraignment, Rivera was released on a $1,000 personal recognizance bond and was picked-up by her father-in-law.

After a much public break-up in 2014 with rapper Big Sean, Rivera and Dorsey began dating and soon-after, married. The couple had dated 4-years prior to Big Sean. In 2015 the two announced they were expecting their first baby. On September 17, 2015, Rivera and Dorsey welcome Josey Hollis Dorsey. In 2016, Rivera filed for divorce from Dorsey, but decided to call off the separation in October 2017 to try to make their marriage work out.
