Storage Wars is back, so are Barry Weiss, Brandi Passante, Dan and Laura Dotson, Rene and Casey Nezhoda, Ivy, and even Darrell Sheets. However, Jarrod Schulz has not been back. That is because things have been quite dicey between Jarrod and Brandi.

Moreover, there seems to be a lot of hints that the reason for their split was due to domestic abuse. This is why fans now think that this is the cause of Brandi and Jarrod’s split.

Storage Wars Star Jarrod Schultz Charged With Domestic Abuse

A lot of Storage Wars fans now know that there has been some trouble between Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz. Back in June, TMZ reported that Jarrod walked into a bar where Brandi was and pushed her. Twice.

This event happened in April, and reported on in June. This is when Jarrod was charged with domestic violence. There was a trial set for July, but there have been no reports on what that verdict was.

This was news to Storage Wars fans. Although the couple often bickered on camera, no one imagined that there was domestic violence. However, it seems that Brandi Passante has given some hints as to what happened between the two, and has indicated that there was abuse.

What Does Brandi Passante Say About Domestic Abuse?

What do we know about the private lives of the Storage Wars couple? Back in October 2019, Brandi Passante volunteered to emcee a charity event for Women’s Own Worth. This worthy Arkansas-based organization raised $100,000. This organization’s motto is “empowering victims of domestic violence and survivors of violent crime through supportive self-worth opportunities.”

Why did Brandi get involved, she told The Saline Courier “I have experienced some things in my life, and it’s a really wonderful cause. It’s things that are needed, so I wanted to help in any way possible.”

A friend of Brandi’s introduced her to the Women’s Own Worth founder, Jajuan Archer. After that meeting, Passante decided she wanted to help the organization. Moreover, she enjoyed the experience. “Everyone has been so kind and generous.”

After she spoke, Brandi shared a photo on Instagram of her emceeing the event. This took place at the Arkansas Governor’s mansion.

On the post she wrote, “Domestic Violence, does not discriminate, Race, Gender, Economic, or Social status. No one is immune. If you think you don’t know anyone, that has suffered abuse, unfortunately, you’re probably wrong. The statistics are staggering. Many stay silent, out of fear, or embarrassment. Please, help this worthy cause and donate to @womensownworth1.”

Storage Wars Star Brandi Passante Has Tattoo Hinting At Domestic Abuse

There are more hints. Last month, Brandi Passante shared a photo of a tattoo on the side of her middle left finger. The tattoo says “free.” The Storage Wars star wrote on the Instagram post what this tattoo means to her, along with a very telling hashtag.

“Although, everyone assumes, this means that I am a huge, “Lynyard Skynyard” fan…
I do love this song! But, this tattoo means so much more. To me, it means that somehow, by the grace of god, I managed to escape a very difficult situation, that so many people fall victim to. I will be eternally grateful, for the life and freedom, without fear that I get to live now. I am also grateful for the empathy and grace, that I am able to give others as a result of the things, that I have endured! I love you all & thank you for all the support! #nationaldomesticviolenceawarenessmonth #freeasabird.”

Brandi wrote this post for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. While she didn’t go into details of her own situation, this is yet another hint about her relationship with her ex-partner, with whom she shares two teenage children with.

Will Jarrod Schulz Return To Storage Wars?

There is no indication whatsoever that Jarrod Schulz is returning to the latest season of Storage Wars. One strong indicator is that Brandi Passante is included in the press release and photos. However, Jarrod is not.

Moreover, A&E has not made a statement regarding Jarrod Schulz returning. Nor have they commented on Jarrod and Brandi’s relationship status, any charges of domestic abuse, or anything else. There has been no news on the verdict of the July trial of this matter.

Moreover, when Storage Wars Season 13 premiered, Jarrod and Brandi were both there, however, bidding separately. Laura Dotson was keeping an eye on Brandi. She even checked in on her.

In the end, he spent $400 on his unit of the episode, but Brandi thought he overspent. He even walked by her trying to start a conversation, but Brandi was having none of that! She chose to ignore him.

Catch new episodes of Storage Wars on Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. Eastern, on A&E.
