As for how David allegedly obtained the credit card, the complaint claims he reported the card stolen and when the new one was delivered through FedEx, he personally picked it up. Demi and her personal assistant claim they didn't make such a report or request at the time.  

According to the complaint, David was arrested outside of a storage unit he had rented in early April. Los Angeles Sherriff's Department confirms to E! News he is still in jail.

Pop culture fans know Demi as a Hollywood actress who had memorable roles on the big and small screen including Empire, G.I. Jane and Indecent Proposal.

While she is not active on social media, fans can usually spot the star on her daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah Willis' Instagram accounts.

Demi's next projects include roles in the upcoming films Love Sonia and Corporate Animals.
