Jean was arrested after allegedly showing up at Marianne’s home in New York City.

Marianne claims the alleged harassment began after the two ended their relationship.

Earlier this month, Marianne had filed legal documents “accusing Jean of grand larceny, disorderly conduct, harassment, coercion and violent touching,” according to the outlet.

“Marianne alleged in the legal documents that Jean took her son’s plastic pistol, which he was using in a student film, and threatened her, claiming the gun was real. Marianne further alleged that Jean abused her pets by allegedly pushing and kicking her German Shepherd.”
