A member of the entertainment industry charged with domestic violence has been given name suppression. 

The man appeared in the North Shore District Court on Friday where his defence lawyer Paul Wicks pushed for name suppression to continue for his client. 

The accused has pleaded not guilty to a domestic violence charge laid by his wife. 

It's the second time Mr Wicks has successfully argued for name suppression for his client. The accused appeared in court last month and was granted bail. 

Mr Wicks argued that his client would face extreme hardship if identified because of his high-profile job and because his family aren't aware of the charges yet.
