DJ Pauly D and his baby mama have been back and forth in the press since Pauly found out that he had fathered Amanda's baby girl, Amabella. However, last month, they seemed to put their issues aside and move forward in a positive way.
Early in the month, the former Jersey Shore star visited with Amabella for the first time and spoiled her with tons of gifts. From there, he plans to get more visitation with his little one and hopefully, gain some sort of custody.
In the meantime, more details are surfacing about Amanda, and they aren't good news -- at least for her.
According to a December 3 report by TMZ, Amanda has a history of domestic abuse -- and there are photos to prove it!
"Amanda Markert was arrested in July 2009 for opening a can of whoop**s on her first baby daddy -- Lance Gerbino -- leaving him with bloody lips, a nasty gash above his eye and injuries inside his mouth," the site reports. "Gerbino tells TMZ ... Amanda had been out drinking with friends ... and was pissed because she had to come home to help take care of their infant son. He claims Markert just started 'going crazy' ... wailing on his face with her fists while she was holding their son. Gerbino felt the baby was in danger ... and that's why he called police."
Following the incident, Amanda turned herself into police and was booked under the name Amareda Markert.
"The assault charge was eventually dismissed after Amanda completed an anger management course," adds TMZ.
