Dorsey gave police a cell phone video of the assault, leading to Rivera's arrest, according to the complaint.
As reported by local news station WSAZ, on Saturday night in Kanawha County, West Virginia, police responded to a domestic violence complaint from Dorsey who claimed that Rivera struck him in the head and face. The statement says Dorsey had minor injuries and showed deputies a video that supported his account of the incident.
Rivera, 30, was charged with misdemeanour domestic battery early Sunday following the incident in her husband's hometown of Chesapeake.
The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office told Us that the couple had been arguing over their son, alcohol may have factored into the situation, and Dorsey did not require medical attention following the altercation.
Many of her close friends believed that since Rivera was deeply hurt by her past relationship with Big Sean, she may have rushed the marriage.
"She was released on a personal recognizance bond, which means she was released on her word that she will appear for court", the spokesperson added. She requested for the dismissal of the divorce which she filed in November of 2016. The clip featured a small girl proclaiming, "I told y'all", People reports.
The Puerto Rican-descent actress surprised the world when she married Dorsey three months after she split up with rapper Big Sean in 2014.
