Christine Quinn claims her estranged husband Christian Richard ‘faked a suicide attempt’ to ‘test’ her love while abroad last year.

In new court documents, obtained by Page Six, the former Selling Sunset star, 35, who is requesting a restraining order against the tech entrepreneur following his arrest for assault at their home last week, detailed the alleged ordeal. 

Quinn stated that after flying from Paris to Hungary to reunite with Richard, 45, after attending Fashion Week, he ‘faked a suicide attempt to see if’ she ‘cared about him.’

‘[Richard] became angry at me, questioning why I needed to work, asserting that he was providing for everything,’ she continued. ‘That night, in our hotel room, I watched [Richard] pour handfuls of pills [and] appear to shove them into his mouth, with pills flying out of his hands and spilling on the floor, and then tell me he was dying.’

When she asked him what he wanted her to do to help, Quinn claims he asked her to ‘just stay with’ him. 

‘When I asked him what pills he took and how many, so I could help him, he just told me he took many other pills that day,’ she recalled.

The mother-of-one explained the experience was particularly frightening as she ‘had no idea how to call for emergency services’ in Hungary. 

‘I was terrified that [Richard] had poisoned and endangered himself. After what felt like an hour of [Richard] apparently falling in and out of consciousness and me being terrified, he suddenly appeared sober again and said ‘you passed the test, you really do love me,” Quinn alleged in the filing. 

Afterward, when she ‘realized’ he ‘faked the whole thing,’ Quinn says she ‘became very afraid of [Richard], and what else he could potentially do.’ 

Quinn, who wed Richard in 2019, previously claimed in legal documents that Richard threw a bag containing a glass bottle, but missed, and hit their son. 

The entrepreneur has denied hitting their son and later filed his own request for a temporary restraining order – which was denied.

In documents, obtained by TMZ, Quinn says her marriage was in decline for several years with their tensions erupting last week when she tried to discuss the family’s financial woes with the retired millionaire.

She claims this angered Richard and he started ‘throwing decorative items at her’ – some of which contained metal rods.

She further claims he pulled his penis out and started urinating on the floor – later allegedly hurling dog feces at her during their row.

Quinn said the row calmed down – but made her determined to leave him for him – so she claims she secretly made plans to do so with their son the next day.

She says she invited a nanny over to ensure Richard ‘wouldn’t lock the home down.’

Quinn claims she was quietly packing her things on March 19 when Richard came storming into their room yelling – before throwing a bag of recyclables at her – only to miss and hit their son. She claims there was glass in the bag.

Once their son began ‘screaming and crying’ Quinn says she fled the room with the toddler and called 911 – before Richard was arrested.

She says she has been staying at a hotel and fears for her safety.

She further claims Richard is controlling and has mental health issues, with things worsening last year.

Quinn further alleges Richard is monitoring her digitally and in the TRO is asking the court to force him off her electronic accounts.

She requests protection for their son and is asking for sole physical/legal custody of the boy until their issues can be heard in front a judge, and asking for monitored visitation after that.

DailyMail.com has contacted Quinn’s representative for comment.

Richard had filed for a temporary restraining order (TRO) that seeks to enforce a ‘legal forcefield around him’ – which he says was essential in light of Quinn’s domestic violence allegations against him – which he denies.

Richard claims the two family dogs are not housetrained and urinate and defecate all over their LA home – and says Quinn refuses to have them trained.

He claims he discovered the two dogs had ‘urinated all over some valuable belongings of his’ despite him blocking off the area from the dogs.

Richard claims when he  went to confront Quinn about he found her in their bedroom with cleaning supplies and other items ‘strewn about all over.’

He says he became angry and picked up a trash bag on the ground – which he claims was full of soiled rags and paper towels – and threw it against a wall. 

Richard denies throwing the bag at Quinn and denies hitting their young son, while also denying the bag was filled with glass. He says this information was relayed to Quinn by police. 

After the bag was thrown Richard claims he tried to escort his son away from the scene but claims Quinn grabbed their son and holed in another room in the house.

Richard says police came in with guns raised and arrested him over ‘lies’ Quinn had told them. 

He further claims Quinn filed a false police report and ‘fabricated’ domestic violence allegations against him to use as leverage in a potential divorce and custody battle.

Richard claims Quinn wants to ’embarrass him’ which is why she called police. A judge has yet to approve his request for the TRO.

This comes as Quinn is reportedly moving to ensure that her estranged husband Richard is kept far away from her and their son.

The  Selling Sunset star has been meeting with lawyers to set in motion a temporary restraining order against Richard (real name: Christian Dumontet), according to TMZ.

The latest development comes after sources claimed that the reality star was planning on leaving her husband and filing for divorce.

Quinn currently has a week-long emergency protective order against her husband, but she will need to petition the courts for another restraining order once it runs out. 

Sources told TMZ that she is in the process of meeting with attorneys to plan out her next steps.

The TV personality is reportedly planning to detail her entire history in order to secure a restraining order, and the sources describe their marriage as being a series of ups and downs.

She’s reportedly ready to make additional serious allegations against her estranged husband relating to their interactions out of the spotlight, and the lawyers are reportedly helping her to navigate those issues. 

Although sources previously told Us Weekly on Thursday that Quinn plans to file for divorce from Richard, her first priority is making sure that he can’t come near her or baby Christian.

Ultimately, the sources allege that she wants a permanent restraining order against Richard, though she will likely have to start with a temporary restraining order.

The insiders add that Quinn’s relationship with Richard feels irreversibly damaged now, so a reconciliation between the spouses is unlikely.

Her emergency restraining order against her estranged husband only lasts for seven days, so she will need to have filed for a temporary restraining order by Wednesday in order to keep a legal barrier protecting herself and her child. 

Quinn’s terrifying saga spilled into the spotlight on Tuesday, when Richard was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, with his bond set at $30,000.

LAPD spokesman Jeff Lee told DailyMail.com: ‘A victim and a suspect were involved in a domestic dispute when the suspect threw a bag at the victim with a glass bottle inside of it. It missed the victim, but that object struck a child.

‘The suspect was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.’

Christian was subsequently taken in an ambulance to a hospital for treatment with his mother by his side, according to TMZ.

Richard was seen in a bathrobe on Tuesday afternoon as he was led into a squad car by police after his arrest.

He subsequently made bail, but was shockingly arrested a second time on Wednesday after he violated the emergency restraining police had offered Quinn by visiting their home.

Although Quinn and her son were reportedly not at the home at the time, Police arrived with guns drawn and did a search of the home before taking Richard into custody.

An eyewitness on the scene alleged that police could be heard shouting for Richard to ‘Come out with your hands up.’ 

LA County Sheriff’s records indicate that Richard posted another $30,000 bond and was released hours after the second arrest. 

A source told Page Six that Quinn and her son were staying at a separate ‘safe’ location, and that someone else had allegedly called the police on Richard. 

Quinn and Richard were originally introduced via a mutual friend, and the tech founder proposed to her on Valentine’s Day of 2019.

The couple were wed in December of that year in a ceremony with a winter wonderland theme featuring an unusual gothic twist, including Quinn’s black wedding dress.

They welcomed their son Christian in 2021. 

The blond beauty is best known as a breakout star on Netflix’s reality series Selling Sunset, in which she sold luxury homes for the Oppenheim Group for five seasons.

Her final season on the show featured allegations that she had tried to bribe a client.
