Not all 90 Day Fiance scandals are fun. Some are deeply alarming.
Leida Margaretha accused Eric Rosenbrook of abuse, and Eric said that he was just trying to stop her from killing herself.
Police visited their home, and Leida has released a statement.
Us Weekly reports that the Baraboo Police Department in Wisconsin visited Leida and Eric's home.
This was on Sunday morning, January 20.
The police visit took place from 8:30 to 8:43 in the morning.
Police have confirmed that they paid the couple a visit, but have so far declined to provide any details.
It is clear to fans that this visit was almost certainly over the couple's alleged domestic incident.
Messages, purportedly from Leida and Eric, each told their sides of the story.
90 Day Fiance superfan and blogger John Yates shared what appear to be text messages that Leida sent.
"He pulled my hairs really hard,” the text messages attributed to Leida say.
The words attributed to Leida confess: “I don’t want to live with him anymore."
"I was about to kill my self with a knife," the alarming text reads.
"He grabbed a knife," the texts conclude. "And abused me after that."
That is terrifying on multiple levels -- the allegations of abuse and also the threatening of suicide.
"We had a fight," Eric Rosenbrook said in other messages.
"I had to wrestle a knife from her," Eric reported.
"As a result of the interaction, the Marine came out in me," he claimed.
"I pulled her hair to get her to stand up as she wouldn’t let me stand her up to look her in face," he admitted.
"She insisted on calling the cops so I did," Eric wrote. "They took her to the hospital to evaluate her mental condition."
Obviously, we can understand taking a knife away from someone to save their life.
It does sound like, by Eric's own admission, he went too far.
Following this incident, Leida is reportedly no longer handling her own social media.
Instead, she is speaking through a publicist, Linda Zimmerman.
In a statement to In Touch Weekly, Leida's publicist acknowledges what went down.
"A domestic incident did take place between Eric and Leida on January 20, 2019," the statement confirms.
The statement continues: "The couple asked that you please respect their desire to keep things private at this time."
And there's more.
Leida and Eric are now both saying that the screenshots that were released were only made public because their Instagram accounts were hacked.
On the one hand, Instagram accounts can absolutely be infiltrated.
The social media giant (owned by Facebook) does not always respond to reports of stolen accounts with great alacrity.
At the same time, some 90 Day Fiance fans are leery of these claims.
Leida has made similar claims in the past.
It's true that Leida Margaretha was one of this season's villains.
She was perhaps the most hated 90 Day Fiance star for Season 6, which is no easy feat, considering her competition.
No matter what you (or anyone) may think of her as a person, no one deserves to be abused.
This is not the first time that Leida has expressed thoughts or impulses of suicide, and we hope that she can make a swift and full recovery.
Reality television drama is one thing. Real life suffering is another.
