Adrienne was married to the plastic surgeon Paul Nassif, who featured on another reality tv show, Botched, before the pair divorced in 2012.

The businessman reported threatening messages and photographs he had received to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, who traced the number to Courtemanche. 

LVMP, with the assistance of the Los Angeles Police Department, went to the Sag-AFTRA actress’ home with a search warrant to seize her electronic devices in May, according to police records.

The alleged scam then unraveled as police revealed how Courtemanche gained access to Maloof’s cell phone and sent money from Maloof’s account to hers via Apple Cash payments.

Judge Nadia Wood set bail for Courtemanche at $10,000, ordered her to stay away from Maloof, and allowed her to ‘walk through’ jail, meaning she did not have to remain in custody, according to Las Vegas Justice Court records. 

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 11 next year.
