Michelle Branch was the guest on an upcoming episode of Tamron Hall Show. During her appearance, she performed a new song and sat down for an in-depth interview about her since-dropped domestic assault charges for slapping her husband Patrick Carney of the Black Keys, her upcoming album The Trouble With Fever, and motherhood. The full episode airs on Thursday (September 15), but a teaser clip shows Branch confirming that she slapped Carney before their fallout and divorce proceedings became public. 

“I don’t condone violence,” Branch told Hall. “What went down was so unfortunate. It was the worst night of my life. Then to have that out in the world as I’m getting ready to put out a record has been a lot, but all I can do is be honest about what I’m going through and what’s going on.” Branch then explained that she and Carney have since started therapy and it’s “helped us immensely.” She elaborated further:

Here I am. I’m only seven months postpartum from having a baby. Every parent in the audience knows this: sleep stress, life stress, marriage stress, work stress. And also we’d been out at a birthday party that night and I’d had a few drinks. All the blocks were stacked in a way that I didn’t have time to think about what I was doing. It was one of those things that I was like, “Is this really happening? Did this really happen? Oh, I probably shouldn’t have tweeted that. Oh, I definitely shouldn’t have let my anger get the best of me.” It’s unfortunate that it took this horrible, traumatic event [for] my husband and I realize how we were going was unsustainable. Maybe this will give us the tools to have a stronger marriage than we’ve ever had. So we’re rolling up our sleeves and doing the work, which never sounds like fun but we’re doing it.
