Aussie Model Sophie Turner Arrested For Allegedly Attacking Husband

Sophie Turner was arrested for felony domestic violence after allegedly attacking her husband in March. The 29-year-old Australian model, not to be mistake with the same-named 18-year-old “Game of Thrones” star, was ordered to stay away from husband Gianmichele Gennari and their daughter.
According to TMZ, Sophie and Gianmichele got into a fight on March 23, which erupted into violence. Gianmichele said that he questioned Sophie’s “sexually provocative choices,” including her abandonment of him and their daughter on February 8.
He also confronted her about her allegedly hook-up with U.S. actor Jeremy Piven on February 8, saying she met the actor at a Santa Monica hotel and returned at 3:30 in the morning.
Gianmichele claimed that the model often leaves their house in “slutty” dresses and doesn’t wear her wedding ring, which effectively told paparazzi that she was single and available.
Sophie reportedly responded to her husband by attacking him, leaving him with facial cuts and scratches on his arm and neck. She acted so crazily that she had ripped his shirt off.
She has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Gianmichele an their daughter until her court hearing later in April.
“Sophie has always maintained a distinction between her public persona and her private life for the benefit of her family,” her attorney, Tiffany Feder, explained, saying that her client is innocent of the charge.
Sophie’s relationship with Jeremy reportedly dates back to as early as 2010. Although she maintains that they’re just friends, TMZ has unearthed videos of them together over the last few years, looking more than friends.
The model came to prominence when she appeared as a contestant on the reality show “Search for a Supermodel” on Network Ten in 2000.
