Police arrested singer Michelle Branch for domestic violence Thursday hours after she said she was separating from her husband, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carne.
Branch earlier deleted a social media post in which she accused her husband of cheating on her.
Before her arrest she told People "To say that I am totally devastated doesn't even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family."
She added, "The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and now I must figure out how to move forward. With such small children, I ask for privacy and kindness."
Celebrity website TMZ reported that police had been called to Branch and Carney's residence for possible domestic disturbance at 2 a.m., and Branch confirmed that she had slapped her husband "one or two times" in the face.
Carney did not receive any injury, according to the local media.
