We’ve heard countless stories of celebrities filing restraining orders against their creepy stalkers, but we haven’t heard too much about the stars who have had restraining orders filed against them.
The world of the rich and famous is predictably filled with drama and scandal, but beyond the salacious gossip there are real legal actions being taken—actions which can permanently taint reputations and end careers.
Christina Ricci’s estranged husband James Heerdegen tried to do just that as he sought, and was denied, a restraining order against the actress. In the order, he accused her of excessive drinking and domestic violence. His order, however, came just days after Ricci herself requested a restraining order against him. Her order was granted. According to Page Six, her attorneys predicted that Heerdegen would strike back after she provided the court with evidence of his alleged domestic abuse.
