Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney in therapy after calling off divorce


Michelle Branch and her husband, Patrick Carney, are in couples therapy in a bid to make their marriage work after allegations of infidelity and domestic abuse.

“My husband and I started therapy recently, and I wish we had started it six months ago. I wish we had gotten help and talked to someone sooner,” said the 39-year-old singer at Tamron Hall in a clip from Thursday’s episode of “The Tamron Hall Show,” obtained by People.

She explained that “it has made a huge difference in such a short time”, before reaching out to other couples who may also be having marital problems.

“If there’s someone out there watching…that’s your sign,” she said. “If you’ve thought about it, go talk to someone.”

Branch’s revelation comes just a day after court documents obtained by Page Six showed that she and Carney had called off their divorce and filed for a reconciliation order.

Although the pair have vowed to make it work, the Black Keys drummer, 42, previously accused the singer of domestic abuse after she announced their separation.

Branch detailed the night she was arrested for slapping her husband and reflected on the repercussions that followed — even after the case was dropped.

“It helped us enormously. The night… what happened is so unfortunate. It was the worst night of my life,” she told Hall. “And then releasing it to the world as I’m about to release a record has been a lot, but all I can do is be honest about what I’m going through and what’s going on. I don’t I’m not the first person to have experienced this.

Branch was arrested for domestic violence in August.

Branch also took full responsibility for his actions saying, “These are not allegations! Violence… I don’t tolerate violence. I slapped my husband. Not the best moment of my life.

Just two days before her arrest, Branch had accused Carney of cheating on her while he was on tour and she was home with their 4-year-old son Rhys James and 7-month-old daughter Willie.

Although Branch didn’t address the infidelity allegations, she said she hopes they can put it all behind them.

“Maybe this will give us the tools to have a stronger marriage than we’ve ever had.” We roll up our sleeves and do the work, which never looks fun, but we do.

The couple first met at a Grammy party in 2015 and got engaged two years later before officially wed in 2019.
