They Were On A Hit Reality Show, Now They’re In BIG Legal Trouble…


“Storage Wars” debuted on the reality TV scene back in 2010 on the A&E network. The show had success with millions of viewers being fascinated by the treasure trove that can be an abandoned storage unit.

He also appeared with his then-girlfriend Brandi Passante, and the pair were affectionately referred to as the “Young Guns.” The pair saw great success from the show and were approached by A&E to create their own spin-off series called Brandi & Jarrod: Married To The Job, which first aired in 2014.

They were both accustomed to the spotlight and attended a series of interviews, however, Jarrod and Brandi eventually closed their store and parted ways romantically, unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like that’s been the end of the drama — and legal trouble — between them.

Fans were devasted to learn that the pair had split up and that they would no longer be working together to hunt for treasure and valuables in abandoned storage units.

“I’m not with Jarrod anymore,” Passante said on April 20, 2021, episode. She also confirmed that she and Schultz had ended their relationship after filming closed on the twelfth season back in November 2018.

Apparently, Jarrod and Brandi ran into each other at an Orange County bar and started a heated argument in April 2021. The exes, who have two children together, were yelling at each other, and when Brandi told Jarrod to leave, he didn’t and instead pushed her twice, according to TMZ. Brandi ended up leaving the bar before the cops arrived to take Passante’s statement and make a report.

Jarrod insists he didn’t get physical with Brandi as he faces a count of misdemeanor domestic violence battery stemming from an alleged incident with his ex-wife back in April.

As the reality personality awaits trial in his domestic violence case, Schulz’s attorney, Benjamin Arsenian, told TMZ that he wants the whole case dismissed. Jarrod denies making any contact with Passante and said he had no plans on taking any plea deal unless it results in a complete dismissal of the case.

Still, the former couple seems to be pretty clearly moving on. TV Show Ace reported that Jarrod was dating Rochel Beckman. Brandi, not so much. “I wasn’t really allowed to have an identity for many, many years,” she told the Spirit Talk YouTube channel (via People). “And so these last couple of years, I’m kind of coming into my own and figuring out who I am.”
