Mormon MumTok star Taylor Frankie Paul finally made her return to TikTok this weekend after her arrest for aggravated assault and domestic violence last month.
On February 18, Taylor was charged for allegedly striking her boyfriend Dakota Mortensen with metal chairs — with one of the chairs reportedly hitting and injuring her five-year-old child in the process.
Recently-divorced Taylor is the most famous mom on “Mormon MomTok” or “Utah MomTok” — a group of female Mormon friends who post dance videos about their lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.
