Christine Quinn feared her estranged husband, Christian Richard, was secretly spying on her following his domestic violence arrest, so she placed a call to police earlier this week, Page Six can confirm.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tells us the “Selling Sunset” alum called them just before midnight on Tuesday and claimed the tech entrepreneur had bugged her hotel room.

When cops arrived at the hotel in West Hollywood, Calif., we’re told they found no evidence of criminal activity and therefore no official report was written.

The LASD rep says Quinn, 35, made the call “based on her history” with Richard. The reality star claimed in her restraining order filing against her estranged husband that he suffered from “extreme paranoia.”

Quinn also alleged in the court docs previously obtained by Page Six that Richard had gone so far as to take “extreme measures” to “prevent [her] from leaving the property to work or run errands” with their son.

“He does everything he can to isolate me and our son, including locking down the front gate so we physically cannot leave the property,” she further claimed in the filing.

Quinn and Richard share a 2-year-old son, Christian Georges, but the LASD officer tells Page Six exclusively the toddler was not present in the hotel room when they arrived following the bugging claim.

The spokesperson explains that “if there was a child,” it would be noted in their report.

Quinn and Richard’s marital issues came to ahead on March 18, when they engaged in a huge fight and the businessman — whom the former Netflix star claims suffers from mental health issues — allegedly threw dog feces at her and even “pulled out his penis” to urinate on the floor.

Quinn claimed in court docs they had been arguing over her “dissatisfaction” with their relationship, including his alleged “lack of financial contribution” and “lack of effort” to be a “true partner.”

The dispute spilled over into the next day, when the reality star claimed her estranged husband threw a bag with a glass bottle in it that ultimately missed her but hit their son.

Shortly after, police were called and a barefoot Richard was arrested on March 19 from the marital home, wearing only a bathrobe. He was booked for assault with a deadly weapon.

Cops then returned to the property with guns drawn to perform a building search prior to his release, which we were told at the time is done when a concerned individual places a call to ensure that the place in question is safe. A source exclusively told Page Six, though, that Quinn allegedly did not make that call.

Richard — whose full legal name is Christian Richard Dumontet — was then arrested a second time hours later for violating the emergency protector order that had been put in place following his arrest.

Meanwhile, Richard has denied all the allegations made against him. He instead accused Quinn of lying to police, alleging they had actually argued in the first place over the former model’s inability to properly house-train their dogs and their son’s nanny’s work hours.

Richards’ TRO request was denied, however, as Page Six exclusively learned Wednesday the Los Angeles Superior Court believed his facts did “not show reasonable proof of a past act or acts of abuse.”

A hearing is set for April 17 to determine whether a restraining order is actually needed, though.

In the meantime, Quinn has been putting on a positive front in public. She attended an event Thursday night in Los Angeles, and looked glamorous and unbothered.

However, the “Selling Sunset” alum poignantly swapped out her engagement ring for a new sparkler.

Quinn and Richard tied the knot in 2019 on Season 3 of her former hit reality show. Her rep did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
