Peter was arrested at Miami International Airport on a fugitive warrant from Louisiana where he is accused of writing fraudulent checks. The Associated Press reported that Peter was then taken to a Miami jail where he spent the night on Friday. As of Saturday morning, Peter was being held without bond, authorities confirmed to PEOPLE.
Peter said the allegations were false and that he will be "acquitted from any wrongdoing" in an official statement obtained by The Associated Press.
Nene actually learned of the news of Peter's arrest for the first time during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Sunday night (clip above). "Now that you are telling me, my reaction is wow. Amazing," Nene told Andy Cohen before adding, "I love Peter."
Nene and Gregg recently showed their support for Peter by attending the soft opening of his new restaurant, Bar ONE Miami Beach, in January. "I [love] these two people," Peter shared in an Instagram post that featured a photo of Nene and Gregg at the event.
