LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Actor Darius McCrary is reportedly seeking a restraining order against his ex-wife Tammy Brawner, who he has accused of "terrorizing" him for quite a while. Best known for playing Eddie Winslow in the 1990s sitcom 'Family Matters', McCrary had initially filed an order of protection in August 2022.


However, that wasn't granted because the 46-year-old actor did not turn up at the hearing. He has now claimed in new court documents that his ex has been "terrorizing" him for nearly four years after they settled their divorce. McCrary said he was worried he would end up like comedian Phil Hartman, who was tragically murdered by his wife in 1998.

In the August filing, McCrary alleged that Brawner broke his car window and tried to attack him with a lead pipe. In new court documents obtained by The Blast, the actor said he didn't show up for the August hearing because he was "displaced at the time, and had to flee from [his] ex." McCrary added that he's "emotionally traumatized, and cannot focus on work or day to day for fear."



He said he's not living in his own home "due to abuse from [his] ex." The court documents also alleged that Brawner took over his home, which the actor described as a "drug den" under her care. "She turned our then home into a drug den, she agreed to leave the country to attend rehab," McCrary claimed in the documents. He added, "She has returned and is now calling and sending threats. She has taken my possessions and placed them in storage and refuses to return them. She continues to be mentally abusive."



According to McCrary, the "final straw" was in December 2022, when "she threatened to have her friends come take [his] dog" if he didn't pay her, adding that she had keys to his vehicle. He bemoaned, "I am afraid she will cause further damage. She continues to call me a punk and is slandering my name in several professional circles of the entertainment industry."

McCrary also alleged that Brawner is holding onto his personal items of value "and is attempting to extort" him. Finally, he said he feared he would "end up like Phil Hartman." The popular 'Saturday Night Live' comedian was fatally shot by his wife Brynn Omdahl before she turned the gun on herself in May 1998. That said, McCrary is also seeking a gag order because his ex is allegedly tarnishing his name in his workplace. The actor is scheduled to have a hearing later this month, in which he is expected to ask the judge to make his temporary restraining order a permanent order of protection.
