STACEY DASH SPEAKS OUT AFTER BEING ARRESTED FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Clueless star Stacey Dash has been arrested for domestic violence, TMZ reports. The star was busted in Pasco County, Florida, where she owns a home.

She reportedly attacked her new husband Jeffrey Marty. Police were called to her home Sunday at 7:45 pm. Dash allegedly pushed, slapped and scratched him, and police found marks on his arm, TMZ reports.

The actress spoke out about the "marital dispute" in a statement Monday afternoon calling it "personal and unfortunate."

Her manager released a statement saying reports had "been blown out of proportion."

"On the evening of Sunday, September 29, 2019, actress Stacey Dash and her husband had a marital dispute in their Tampa, FL suburb; Pasco County Deputies were dispatched to their residence. No charges were pressed by her husband, however, Deputies arrested Ms. Dash peacefully, as a formality," it begins. "Ms. Dash's husband appeared in court today, September 30th, on her behalf and Ms. Dash was released from the Land O' Lakes detention facility. No further legal action is pending."

"Ms. Dash is a domestic abuse survivor from a previous relationship and has championed for other abuse victims to speak up," the statement concludes. "The untruthfulness being reported saddens Ms. Dash and her family - no further comments will be made and we ask that Ms. Dash and her family's privacy will be respected."

The pair married in a secret ceremony last year. Not much is known about Marty, except that he's a lawyer.

This is Dash's fourth marriage.
