Personal lifeEdit

On February 18, 2016, Forkner's former girlfriend Christine Messersmith filed a report alleging that she and Forkner had been involved in a physical altercation three days earlier. According to LA Weekly, the police report filed by Messersmith indicated that she hit Forkner after a verbal dispute and Forkner then followed her into the house and pushed her to the ground. The L.A. City Attorney's office rejected her case due to "low likelihood of conviction based on the evidence", after which Messersmith posted photographs on Facebook describing the altercation.[1]
