The victim in the October incident told police that she had been in a relationship with Bryan for two years.
Bryan took to Instagram on October 1, 2020 to announce that he and Matros intended to separate.
He later removed the post announcing their split after it emerged he had copied the text word-for-word from actor Armie Hammer’s post, when he split from his wife last July.
