Big Brother alum Christmas Abbott pleaded not guilty on Monday after she was arrested and charged with criminal mischief. Hillsborough County Court confirmed to Us Weekly that the 36-year-old turned herself in on Nov. 6 following an incident in which she smashed her vehicle into the car of a woman who was dating her baby daddy.
According to a police report previously obtained by the outlet, a then-eight months pregnant Abbott “rammed another vehicle multiple times” after getting into a fight with Samantha Morse, her ex Benjamin Bunn’s new girlfriend, back in August.
“[Abbott] came to the gym to confront her child’s father’s romantic partner. Once there, she threw a coffee cup and caused a scene,” the report read. “The suspect entered her Mercedes-Benz SUV and proceeded to ram the victim’s vehicle twice. This caused over $5,000 worth of damage to the victim’s vehicle.”
Morse alleged in a statement to police that Abbott called her a “pathetic, home-wrecking little slut” before hitting her car. But Bunn is trying his best to co-parent their son, Loyal, despite the drama.
“I’ve caught a lot of heat the past five months from friends, family, and strangers,” the fitness coach wrote on Instagram on Nov. 12. “Working to co-parent with someone that you’re not romantically involved with, and for that matter barely know, is a tough undertaking… I’ve learned a lot about what I prioritize as a person and what it actually means to not care about the options of others, and how much it means to place value in the options that actually matter. Something I still struggle with.”
Abbott’s arraignment is scheduled for next month.
