Grey’s Anatomy actress in hospital following alleged assault by husband

Aussie actress Melissa George left bruised and feeling faint

Australian actress Melissa George is reportedly in hospital following an alleged assault by her partner of four years, Jean David Blanc.

French website Purepeople reported 40-year-old Melissa was taken to Cochin hospital in Paris after turning up at the police station at around 3am on Wednesday morning.

The star - who shares two sons with 48-year-old Jean David – is believed to be suffering from bruising to her face and was complaining of pain and feeling faint.

M6info reports: “According to statements by the actress ... she was assaulted by her companion.

'The police were called last night to intervene in the centre of Paris.

'In shock, Melissa George, had a swelling of the face and complained of pain, nausea and dizziness.'

The site claims there are no reports of the French businessman being arrested or charged over the alleged incident.

Businessman Jean David is also a writer and film producer, famed for founding cinema service organization AlloCiné.

The couple first met in 2011 at a BAFTA after-party, before beginning a relationship in 2012.

Their first son Raphael was born in February 2014 and their second son Solal was born in November last year.

Melissa was previously married to Chilean film director Caludio Dabed.

When announcing Solal's birth on social media, Melissa publicly gushed over her husband.

'Thank you to my love, Jean David, for giving me the best gift in my life. I love you,' she wrote at the time.

Melissa most recently starred as Dr. Alexandra Panttiere in the NBC medical drama, Heartbeat.

Unfortunately, the show was canceled by the network back in May following poor ratings and a negative critical reception.

She rose to fame in Home And Away in the 90s, before landing recurring roles in Alias and Grey's Anatomy.
