A husband whose lavish $56 million wedding went viral online is now facing life in prison, while his wife has deleted the TikTok account that showed off their big day.
It's expected that brides will capture a lot of attention on their wedding days, but Madelaine Brockway got more than most after footage from her wedding spread like wildfire.
According to event company The Lake Como Wedding Planner, which organized the big day, Brockway, a 26-year-old heiress to a Florida car dealership, enjoyed a four-day bachelorette party at a five-star Utah resort before heading to her wedding in Paris.
There, she wore a Dior Haute couture wedding dress as she walked down the aisle to meet her new husband, Jacob Chase LaGrone, in November.
The wedding included a welcome dinner at one of the most famous opera houses in the world, with Maroon 5 on hand to play music for the happy couple after they tied the knot.
Then, they stayed overnight at the Palace of Versailles to celebrate their nuptials.
It was these kinds of details which prompted wedding planners The Lake Como Wedding Planner and HMR Designs to label the event as the 'wedding of the century'.
However, just a few weeks into their life as husband-and-wife, Brockway has deleted the TikTok account that she used to share content from the day.
The move came after LaGrone, 29, was charged with aggravated assault against a public servant after he allegedly fired shots at police officers in Texas earlier this year.
The officers involved in the incident were responding to multiple calls about a disturbance when the shots were fired on 14 March.
An indictment accused LaGrone of 'intentionally and knowingly threaten[ed] imminent bodily injury', and claims he 'did use or exhibit a deadly weapon during the commission of the assault, namely, a firearm'.
LaGrone could face up to life in prison if convicted, as any crime against a police officer that results in serious bodily injury is a first-degree felony in Texas.
However, the 29-year-old has been offered a plea deal in which he would agree to plead guilty in exchange for a sentence of 25 years in prison.
Brockway did not appear in Tarrant County District Court in Fort Worth, Texas, on Thursday, where her husband arrived for a motion hearing in the case.
As well as deleting her TikTok account, Brockway has also made her Instagram account private.
