Darius McCrary’s wife has officially filed a restraining order against the Family Matters actor following claims he abused her and their 1-year-old daughter, Zoey.
TMZ first broke the story, Tammy Brawner filed documents in Los Angeles this month claiming that McCrary has been wildly abusive.
The former Globetrotter suggests in the documents that on February 10, the actor became so irate he started throwing items around the home. She states that he also hit her in the head with his forearm.
It didn’t end there. According to Brawner, the 40-year-old has been abusive towards their little girl, which was the final straw for Tammy. Per the docs, Darius at one point held the 16-month-old over a boiling pot of water and said he wished he never had her.
McCrary has been ordered to move out and stay at 100 yards away from Tammy and Zoey. Visitation rights have been provoked until their March court hearing.
McCrary, meanwhile, has been mocking the allegations by posting a series of cryptic images on Instagram. On Wednesday night, McCrary shared a group of old photos of him his 16-month-old daughter bonding with major smiles plastered across their faces. One sarcastic caption read: “Riiiiight.”
“Tammy Brawner is no victim….she is a predator motivated by a desperate desire to extort money out of Mr. McCrary while trying to create an advantage in an impending divorce and custody battle,” Darius’ attorney Glen T. Jonas said in a statement.
He added, “Mr. McCary is a loving, devoted and dedicated father. Her allegations are such obvious and outlandish lies….we are all dumber for having read them. Having floundered after being fired by the globetrotters she apparently will say anything for a bit of media attention and a glimpse of the spotlight.”
