Blair and her producer have been dating for years now. The pair first got together romantically from June 2017 to Janaury 2018. They rekindled their romance in 2020 and remained in a relationship till earlier this year. The alleged incident between the estranged couple ensued when Carlson came to Blair's house to return a television set.
As per the court documents and the Cruel Intention actress herself, Carlson became enraged and lashed at her, saying, "I don't f---ing deserve this, I can do so much better than you." Blair claims the producer called her "useless and began physically assaulting the actress. The documents state the producer "strangled her, throttling her and shaking her head and shoulders aggressively."
