Dorsey was left with minor injuries following the altercation on Saturday evening.

Rivera, who played Santana in the musical TV show, was charged with misdemeanour domestic battery, with her bond set at $1,000.

The couple married in Mexico in July 2014 after just a few weeks of dating, having recently reunited after originally dating four years earlier. Rivera had just split from rapper fiance Big Sean just three months prior to the nuptials.

They welcomed their son Josey together in September 2015.

In November 2016, Rivera and Dorsey announced they were separating, before calling off their divorce last month.
