On Wednesday, August 12, former “American Idol” contestant and “The Bold and the Beautiful” alum Constantine Maroulis (ex-Constantine Parros) was arrested for allegedly kicking the mother of his child in the groin, reports TMZ. “The mother of Constantine’s 4-year-old daughter called 911 from their home in Wyckoff, New Jersey claiming he threw her to the ground and kicked her in the groin,” the website cites a law enforcement source as saying.

Representatives for the singer notes that Maroulis was acting in self-defense because he was attacked first. “The singer is adamant that he did NOT kick her, and says the argument started after he told her he was leaving her. The rep says there is evidence proving today’s incident was self-defense and the rep adds there are well documented prior instances where she was violent,” shares TMZ.

It’s understood that Maroulis was injured on his right thigh when his girlfriend hurled something at him.
