Christine Quinn Accuses Husband Christian Richard of Throwing Dog Poop at Her Before Arrest

Selling Sunset alum, Christine Quinn, has claimed that she and her husband, Christian Richard, were involved in a major altercation prior to the domestic violence arrest.

Quinn, 35, alleged in court documents filed earlier this week and obtained by Page Six, that Richard, 45, became angry with her on March 18 when she informed him that she was dissatisfied with their marriage and the alleged “lack of effort” on his part to be a “true partner.”

Quinn claimed that in response, Richard began yelling at her, throwing a bouquet of flowers, and dumping water on the floor in a “rage.” The reality TV star also claimed that Richard retrieved “dog excrement” from the trash and threw it at Quinn. (Richard has not publicly responded to the latest accusations from his partner.)

“I then locked him out, and our son and I spent the night in the master bedroom,” Quinn added in her court documents. “I could hear him continuing to yell and scream, and I could hear him breaking and damaging items in the house.”

Quinn and Richard, who married in 2019, share a 3-year-old son, also named Christian.

News of Richard’s arrest for assault with a deadly weapon on March 19 emerged a few days later, on March 20. According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Richard allegedly threw a bag containing glass at Quinn. The glass missed Quinn and instead struck their son. Richard was arrested wearing a bathrobe.

Following Richard’s arrest, Quinn took their toddler son to the emergency room after he was allegedly injured during the altercation.

Richard was released the next day and returned home with his partner. Upon arriving at the home, Richard was re-arrested for violating Quinn’s restraining order. The businessman eventually posted a $30,000 bail and was released a few hours later.

Both Quinn and Richard have yet to publicly address the incident, although sources told Us that they are likely to separate soon.

“Christine Quinn plans to leave Christian,” the source said. “She plans to file for divorce.”

Meanwhile, Richard is also seeking a restraining order against Quinn. In a temporary restraining order request filed on Tuesday, March 26, Richard claimed that their altercation stemmed from noticing their pet dog had urinated on his belongings. When he allegedly confronted Quinn, he said she threw a trash bag containing paper towels and rags at the wall — not at him. Richard claimed that Quinn changed the story to gain an advantage in potential divorce and custody proceedings over Christian.

A judge has not yet approved Richard’s motion.
