TLC’s hit show Cake Boss is definitely getting some negative attention after one of the stars, Remy Gonzalez, brother-in-law to shop owner Buddy Valastro, was arrested and charged with sexual assault on a teen. Remy is currently married to Buddy (the Cake Boss) Valastro’s sister and works with the family at Carlo’s Bake Shop, co-starring in the bakery’s popular show.
The New Jersey Star-Ledger reports that, according to the arrest affidavit, Gonzalez, “admitted to witnesses that he assaulted the teen in March in East Hanover and Florham Park.” Those witnesses say the victim claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Gonzalez. After detectives interviewed the witnesses and compiled the evidence during their investigation, Gonzalez was arrested on August 17 and is being held at Morris County jail on $300,000 bail.
The charges include first and third degree aggravated sexual assault, criminal sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child. The affidavit did not disclose the gender of the alleged victim. Gonzalez is being charged in both counties for his alleged crimes.
In a statement released by TLC, a rep for the network says, “We support Buddy and the Valastro family during this very difficult and challenging time. The network respects the family’s wish for as much privacy as possible, and as this doesn’t involve us, we will not be commenting any further.”
