Paul Simon and wife Edie Brickell made an unscheduled appearance in Court on Saturday following a domestic dispute which evidently became physical, with Brickell’s mother calling the police.
The subsequent appearance in Court saw Brickell, a Grammy winner herself, admit she had started the argument with a statement released to CNN by her lawyer saying, “I got my feelings hurt and I picked a fight with my husband.”. “The police called it disorderly. Thank God it’s orderly now”
The network reported that Simon and Brickell were arrested on disorderly conduct charges by police investigating a family dispute at their New Canaan, Connecticut, home Saturday night, according to police. “Investigating officers gathered information and found probable cause to arrest” Simon, 72, and Brickell, 47, a police statement said.
They held hands when appearing before a judge in the Norwalk Superior Court Monday.
“Edie and I are fine,” Simon said. “We’re going to see our son’s baseball game this afternoon.”
The judge declined to issue a protective order that would have kept Simon and Brickell apart. Their case was continued until May 16.
