Unfortunately, Michael’s girlfriend Marie is facing some legal issues of her own this season.
“My brother called the cops on me,” Marie said in a clip shared in the clip above. Marie revealed that she was facing domestic violence and battery charges and is facing 30 days in jail.
“The thought of me having to go to jail and you staying behind with the baby. I can’t think about leaving the baby. I don’t want to go back,” Marie told Michael as she broke down in tears. But Michael proved he’s her ride or die. “Listen to me, I don’t give a f—k what we spend, you’re not doing no jail time,” he told her, promising to help her fight the charges.
