Charlie Sheen’s ex-fiancée Brett Rossi was granted a temporary restraining order against the actor on Friday, April 8, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Superior Court confirmed to Us Weekly.
According to the Associated Press, the judge approved her request based on the claims on her application that the Two and a Half Men alum has purportedly threatened her life and because of two alleged incidents of domestic abuse.
“The court recognized the serious nature of Mr. Sheen’s threats and extended the protective order. Mr. Sheen now has to respond to the protective order,” Rossi’s lawyer David Ring tells Us Weekly in a statement about Rossi, who also goes by Scottine Ross. “Ms. Ross continues to cooperate with law enforcement to ensure her safety and the safety of others.”
The news comes just one day after LAPD officer Matthew Ludwig confirmed to Us that Sheen, 50, is currently under criminal investigation. According to Ludwig, on March 31 around 3 p.m. PT, Van Nuys officers “completed an investigative report where Mr. Charlie Sheen is listed as a suspect.” Ludwig added that the threat-management unit is leading the investigation. Since the case is ongoing, law enforcement could not provide further details, but Rossi’s lawyer John C. Taylor confirmed to Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday that the investigation involves her.
In December 2015, Rossi, 26, filed a lawsuit against the star — who she was in a relationship with for more than a year before their October 2014 split — alleging assault and battery, emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence. Her filing came after Sheen revealed in November that he is HIV-positive.
