Reality couple split after assault charge

The Amazing Race's Ashley Ruscoe has confirmed she's split from Sidney Pierucci after he was charged with assault and destroying property following a domestic incident at Bellevue Hill in Sydney.

"We're definitely broken up. He moved out. We're still amicable but we're taking it day by day," she told Sydney Confidential at a Cole Hair x Bondi Boost launch.

Reports surfaced over the weekend that Pierucci, a 27-year-old influencer, was charged after an alleged domestic altercation which occurred about 3am on Monday 14 October when police spoke to a young woman.

"A man was arrested nearby and taken to Waverley Police Station and charged with assault and destroy/damage property," police said.

Pierucci took part in Channel 10's The Amazing Race with Ruscoe.
