Their marriage has already had more than its fair share of trouble.

In July, just days after reuniting with his estranged wife he was arrested for domestic violence against her for the second time in a month.

He was picked up by Los Angeles Police and immediately taken to a local hospital for self inflicted cuts.

He and Nikki were arrested together on domestic violence charges at the start of the month.

They had both admitted having a drink problem after the booze-fuelled row that led to the charges and went into rehab.

South African singer Nikki admitted: 'Weston and I did get physical with one another and he did not hit me in the face.

'We may be passionate, but we are not crazy.

'We are not pressing charges against each other and we are working through our issues.'

She hinted the row may have been sparked after Weston caught her drinking alcohol.

She told TMZ: 'I did drink the night before the arrest. I suppose my hormones got the best of me.

'That was the only occasion I consumed alcohol since I found out that I'm pregnant and I really regret my decision to do so.'

The pair have no children together, and it is not clear if Nikki is still pregnant.
