Breaking news from France has revealed that Kingsley Coman was taken into custody on Monday after two violent altercations with his spouse Sephora Coman over the weekend. The couple are in the midst of an acrimonious separation.

According police reports, two separate incidents occurred at his spouse’s residence in Seine-et-Marne outside Paris on Saturday and Sunday. Coman was taken into custody after Sephora Coman called the police on Monday morning. He was questioned by police for several hours and reportedly “acknowledged the facts.”

Coman was released, but will return to stand trial according to a French plea-bargaining procedure that amounts to a pretrial guilty plea (“comparution sur reconnaissance préalable de culpabilité”), which should mitigate his eventual punishment. The dispute was allegedly about an advertising contract that Coman was unaware of. Coman and his wife Sephora have a young daughter, Leyana.
