Taylor Frankie Paul Charged With Domestic Violence and Child Abuse
Dakota, 30, was also allegedly injured in the incident, with the responding officer observing “redness and swelling around his eyes, swelling on his elbow, scratches on his fingers, and a laceration on his neck.”
The officer also noted that Taylor’s son Ocean Paul, 2, was also inside the residence at the time of the incident.
Days after the arrest, Dakota defended Taylor, telling the Daily Mail in an article published Feb. 23, “She never hurt anyone intentionally” and “We didn’t argue.”
He continued, “I don’t even want the truth to come out. She’s so broken right now. I tried to help her. She’s a good mom, she’s going through a lot in her life right now. Taylor’s been struggling, it’s been a hard year for her. She is racked with guilt on her cheating scandal that cost her her marriage.”
Taylor drew controversy in 2022 when she revealed during a TikTok livestream that she and her husband Tate Paul, her children’s father, were getting divorced after participating in a “soft swinging” group with other members in the Mormon MomTok community. She admitted she “messed up” when she “stepped out” of an agreement with her ex, in which they agreed not to “go all the way” with swapped sexual partners.
“We played with fire,” she said, “and we got burned.”
