The wife of controversial suspended Auburn deputy mayor Salim Mehajer has reportedly applied for an apprehended violence order against her husband.
A NSW Police spokesman said officers from the Sydney City Local Area Command made an application on Monday for an AVO against a 30-year-old man.
Aysha Mehajer used her maiden name, Learmonth, in the application, Fairfax Media reports, and officers representing Ms Learmonth will appear in a Sydney court on Wednesday to make the application against the western Sydney property developer.
News Corp is reporting that Mr Mehajer is due to appear in court on Wednesday over the application.
The incident comes just a month shy of the one-year anniversary of the Mehajers’ lavish wedding which caused a storm of controversy when roads were shut down in southern Sydney to accommodate the event’s motorcade.
The extravaganza also included four helicopters, a fighter-jet flyover, sports cars worth about $50 million and even a sea plane.
Earlier this year, Mr Mehajer also threw an extravagant party for his wife’s 30th birthday, but there was speculation at the time that Mrs Mehajer may not have even been present.
Media outlets have previously reported that Mr Mehajer has denied the couple was estranged after police were called to an incident at Mrs Mehajer’s sister’s home in which Mr Mehajer had allegedly been “yelling and screaming at the door”.
Mr Mehajer has continued to publish affectionate comments and photos of the couple on Facebook.
