According to the legal documents we received, 39-year-old Branch was taken into custody on Thursday, August 11, at 2 a.m. local time in Nashville, and her bail was set at $1,000. The “Everywhere” singer, who has a son, Rhys, 3, and daughter, Will Jacquet, 6 months, with a band member, 42, was subsequently released, and her next court appearance will take place in November.

Branch confirmed that she and Carney had broken up in a statement. “To say that I am completely devastated is not even close to describing how I feel about myself and my family. The carpet completely fell out from under me, and now I have to figure out how to move on,” she told Us on Thursday. “With such young children, I ask for privacy and kindness.”

She then accused him of fraud, to which he has not yet responded publicly. We have reached out to a representative of the Black Keys drummer for comment.
