Couple argued over whether or not it was the singer in a TV advert they were watching

Pop singer and actress Hilary Duff was the subject of a marital dispute which has led to a wife being charged with domestic abuse after she allegedly bit her husband’s face mid-argument.

The Appalachian News-Express reports that Brandi and Ethan Lester were embroiled in an argument during the Christmas period over whether it was Duff appearing in a TV advert they were watching. Ethan thought it was Duff, while Brandi disagreed.

The disagreement escalated and led to Brandi allegedly biting her husband on the face. It is not known whether Duff was actually in the advert or not.

Ethan Lester recently spoke to local news channel WYMT and said: “Me and my wife are on edge, as most families are around the holidays. I’m unemployed at the moment. I guess it just took one simple misunderstanding.” Watch in the video below.

Brandi Lester has been charged with domestic abuse and fourth-degree domestic violence. The couple are not allowed to make contact with each other until March.
