Married At First Sight bride Scarlett Cooper filed a police complaint claiming she was assaulted and held on set against her will by a producer, reports The Sunday Telegraph.
While filming a reunion episode on January 30, the 30-year declared she was chased through Sydney streets at 3am after being physically prevented from leaving the film set.
The 20 minute chase apparently ended when Scarlett, 'hysterical and disoriented', collided with a police car that she had requested.
Channel Nine released a statement about the incident assuring it was a misunderstanding.
'As a duty of care, a producer followed her off set to ensure her safety. A misunderstanding resulted in police attending to also ensure Scarlett's safety. Together, production and the police ensured she was escorted home safety,' said a spokesperson.
The bride reportedly identified herself to police using a different name and occupation as communicated on the show. At the police station, the 'aspiring writer' showed officers bruises on her body that were created with make-up.
According to the publication, the star retracted her statement later that day.
At the commitment ceremony in Sunday night's episode, Scarlett and her husband Michael decided to end their marriage and leave the show.
We predict parts of the footage will be shown in an upcoming reunion episode.
