Mike Fleiss, the creator of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” has been accused by his pregnant wife of assaulting her because she refused an abortion.

According to court documents obtained by Variety, Laura Fleiss filed for an emergency domestic violence restraining order against her husband when he allegedly “attacked her and ‘demanded’ … she have an abortion” at their home in Hawaii.

“While we were at our house in Kauai, Mike demanded that I get an abortion,” Laura Fleiss alleged in the court documents. “Our son Ben was in the house, seated in another room nearby. Mike told me, ‘If you have an abortion, then we can just go back to the way we were.'”

The tension between Laura and Mike allegedly erupted over her being pregnant with a second child, which Mike Fleiss did not want.

“While Mike has frequently been verbally abusive towards me during our marriage, in recent weeks, he has become enraged, due to the fact I am pregnant with our second child,” she said in her statement. “Mike told me many times that he did not want us to have a second child. He also repeatedly told me throughout our marriage, and prior to our marriage, that he knew he would ‘have to have’ one child with me because I was 26-years-old when we got married, did not yet have any children, and he knew I wanted to have a family. Mike, however, being 55-years old, did not want to have more than one child together.”

Laura Fleiss alleged that on July 6, Mike “grabbed [her] body” and “forcibly pinned [her] up against the wall” while threatening to “punch her in the face.” She provided a photo of a bruise on her arm as evidence.

A spokesperson for Warner Horizon, which produces both “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” said that the company is “aware of these serious allegations, and are looking into them.”

Mike Fleiss has denied all of the allegations and claims that his wife lied to him about being on birth control and also being on Lexapro to deal with her “emotional issues,” according to Radar Online. He also claims that Laura was the one who attacked him on July 6.

“The entire time I was running out of the house and to the car, she was pounding on me with her fists, jumping on my back, and attacking me trying to get the phone back” he wrote in the affidavit. “I kept telling her to get away form me. As I ran down he narrow staircase of the house, she was pounding on me so hard the side of my head was slammed against the wall.”

“Once I stepped outside the house, she continued to follow me, screaming and attacking me,” he continued. “I had my arms up to protect myself. Once I got to my truck and got in, she continued to pursue me and actually climbed in the driver’s side of the truck continuing to attack me and try and pull her phone out of the truck. I did not want this aggressive encounter to continue any longer and did not want her to hurt herself and the baby. Eventually, she jumped back out of the truck and I was able to drive away.”
