Darius McCrary Accused of Choking, Beating Karrine Steffans

by at . Comments

Darius McCrary is back in the news, for all the wrong reasons.

The former Family Matters star, who was accused by ex-wife Karrine Steffans of abuse in June 2008, has been ordered to remain at least 100 yards away from his former flame.

A judge agreed to this temporary restraining order in response to legal documents filed by Steffans this week. They cite two separate encounters with McCrary.

In February, Steffans - who rose to fame by starring in a number of rap videos - claims McCrary "choked me from behind and beat me with a belt. The alleged attack took place in front of her 12-year-old son.

Karrine also says McCrary choked her and shoved her into a car during a November incident that was witnessed by a crowd of people at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Los Angeles.

A court hearing is scheduled for next week. McCrary and Steffans divorced earlier this year.

UPDATE: In response, the actor says Steffans "didn't take the finality of the divorce well and has resorted to her old tricks of public defamation."

What did he think he would have to deal with when he married a whore? Karrine Steffins (Karen Stevens, on her B.C.)is a certified slut, who has done EVERYTHING you can think of doing with another human being - or most livestock - on and off camera, gratis and for money. I feel for the brother, but there's an old saying that holds very true: You cannot turn a 'ho into a housewife!

Say it ain't so. Evidently Darius does not value his role as Malcolm on the Soap, The Young and the Restless. This type of behavior is unacceptable by the powers that be at Y and R!!

I just don't understand people. How hard is it to be a nice person? Not that hard. People are so angry.
