Chelsea Lazkani’s Estranged Husband Accuses Her Of Domestic Violence


Last month, the reality TV star filed to end her ties to Jeff after nearly seven years of what appeared to be a blissful relationship. Unfortunately, it seems terrible things were happening behind the scenes if Jeff’s narrative is to be believed.

In the legal document filed on April 2, he claimed via his lawyer that he also wants a divorce and cited irreconcilable differences. He further explained the reason behind his desire to leave Chelsea in a written declaration, accusing her of domestic violence.

He noted his estranged wife has been “exhibiting suspicious behavior” and blamed her for the disappearance of many of his “personal belongings.” These items allegedly went missing from their Manhattan Beach, California home after Chelsea filed for divorce in March.

Jeff Feels Blindsided By The Divorce

If the domestic violence allegations weren’t enough, Jeff claimed he was “stunned” after discovering that Chelsea had filed for divorce through a text message from TMZ.

He alleged that after learning of her move to end their marriage, he texted Chelsea; however, she didn’t respond. That same day, the Netflix alum’s brother also started sleeping at the Manhattan Beach home without telling Jeff.

The heartbroken husband noted that the last time he slept at their beach home was the day he found out about the divorce. He allegedly later found out that Chelsea had opened a separate bank account around the time she filed for separation.

Jeff further highlighted his estranged wife’s suspicious behavior, claiming she has been “sneaking around the property” and tried to enter his room “when she thought he was not home.”

Jeff Wants Chelsea Out Of Their Manhattan Beach Home

In his filing, Jeff asked for “exclusive use and possession” of the former couple’s five-bedroom home, which they purchased for $2.9 million in 2018. He requested that Chelsea, who he said is not named on the mortgage, leave the lavish property.

Jeff asked the court to grant her 48 hours to get what she needed from that property and not be allowed inside for more than two hours to gather her belongings. He also wanted “a neutral party” to be there to help them split items that they may dispute over.

To support his case, Jeff stressed that Chelsea has other options for housing and can live with a friend named Savannah, who resides nearby. If she didn’t wish to crash with her pal, he claimed the reality TV star could afford to lodge at an Airbnb.

As for their divorce, Jeff wants the duo to cover their respective attorney fees and asked the court to terminate their rights to spousal support. He noted that he needed time to sort out his property and assets but ultimately wanted them to be separated from his estranged wife.
