Page Six, who first broke the news of Mike’s arrest, highlighted cryptic posts that were allegedly found on Mike’s since-deleted Instagram page. “Your life is your responsibility. Your success is your responsibility,” he reportedly wrote on one of his Instagram stories before it was deleted, according to Page Six. “Your failure is your responsibility. Your reaction is your responsibility. Your behavior is your responsibility.”

Although the alleged victim of Mike’s reported assault has not yet been identified, he and his fiancée, Paulina Ben-Cohen, were likely living together, as Mike announced their engagement last August during the Shahs of Sunset Season 9 reunion. “I actually asked her son his permission to marry his mommy, and I gave him the ring,” he noted during the taping. “We were in Hawaii, and I planned with the concierge where the most beautiful part of the beach was gonna be.”
