When Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin announced last week that she and fiancé Justin Hodak had ended their engagement, there was no hint of the drama brewing below the surface.
Now, People reports that the former child star was granted a temporary restraining order against her ex, to whom she got engaged in January 2016 after two years of dating. Court documents show that Sweetin, 35, accused 40-year-old Hodak of abusing steroids, testosterone supplements, alcohol, and marijuana as well as acting violently. She also claimed that he brandished a pistol and threatened to take his own life in an incident at their then-shared home on March 18. Sweetin, who is mother to two young daughters from prior relationships, added that Hodak had called her at least 87 times and had threatened to share intimate photos of her.
In addition to the March 18 incident, Sweetin claimed that, in the wake of a prior breakup, Hodak had tried to confront her at the Warner Bros. lot where she films Fuller House, as well at her daughters’ school.
According to the restraining order, he must stay at least 100 yards away from Sweetin, her home, her job, her vehicle, and her children’s school, and he cannot contact her directly or indirectly. The order also grants protection to her daughters, her parents, and her assistant.
Hodak, however, has allegedly violated the order multiple times, People reports. Yesterday he was arrested for the third time in nine days after police officers caught him driving by the actress’ home. A police spokesman confirmed that he was charged with violating the order, though it is unclear what prompted the other two arrests, or if he has been released.
A court hearing to review the terms of the restraining order is scheduled for April 14.
