Ever since he came out of police custody, Mike has disabled his Instagram account and turned down the allegations of abuse through his lawyer. His next appearance in court is scheduled for 25th July.
Mike’s attorney, Alex Kessel, said, “My own investigation reveals no acts of domestic violence was committed by my client. I have no doubt Mike will be exonerated. Please honor the presumption of innocence.”
According to news published by a few media outlets, cryptic posts were allegedly found on Mike’s Instagram stories page which are now deleted.
The post read, “Your life is your responsibility. Your success is your responsibility. Your failure is your responsibility. Your reaction is your responsibility. Your behavior is your responsibility.”
Shouhed seems to be still following his fiancée, Paulina Ben-Cohen, on Instagram as of 4th April. It is still not confirmed whether she was involved in the entire incident of domestic violence.
Mike and Paulina Ben-Cohen’s relationship
Mike made the announcement about their engagement during the Shahs of Sunset Season 9 reunion in August 2021.
Back then he said, “I actually asked her son his permission to marry his mommy, and I gave him the ring. We were in Hawaii, and I planned with the concierge where the most beautiful part of the beach was gonna be.”
Ben-Cohen has two sons from her previous marriage while Shouhed was previously married to Jessica Parido, a nurse and influencer. She disclosed during the reunion that she and Shouhed have not yet decided to sign a prenuptial agreement.
The blogger said, “I would not marry someone if I felt that I need to protect myself. In my eyes, that’s not a marriage. Then I’ll just date someone. The love and the connection that we have with each other, like, I would not be able to live a day without him in my life.”
