On the same day actress Stacey Dash filed for divorce from her husband, she also got a restraining order against him – claiming he beat her on multiple occasions throughout their two-plus years of marriage.
The order, originally signed by a judge January 29, is still active against her husband, Emmanuel Xuereb, reports TMZ. She claims that he has beaten her in the face, head and body, but she was too afraid to report it to authorities.
Dash, 44, also claims a drunken Xuereb once violently pinned her down to a bed and threatened her, saying it would be the worst night of her life.
Xuereb is ordered to stay 100 yards away from Stacey, her two children (neither of whom are his) and the family home. They’re due back in court in June.
