Francis "Coyote" Shivers, the ex-husband of NCIS star Pauley Perrette, says he dumped the 43-year-old actress after she slept with a pizza delivery man.
Shivers, who faces jail time for violating a restraining order, also says she's living the plot of an unsold film script she wrote and framing him with cops.
Perrette and Shivers married in 2000, separated in 2004 and divorced in 2006. She's been locked in a legal battle with him off and on ever since.
Friends of Shivers says Pauley isn't the innocent victim in all of this.
“She’s extremely extroverted, extremely intelligent and charming, but she’s wicked,” Jason Fishbein, who says he was a close friend of Perrette, said.
Fishbein described in court papers how the actress, one of prime time's most popular, “possibly uses restraining orders as a method of harassment.”
Another former friend claims Perrette “has a history of vindictive behavior” toward ex-flames, according to a court affidavit, and none more so than Shivers.
Lisa Lynch says Perrette was treated in the psych ward at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. for “an extended period,” according to court papers.
In 2005, Perrette sought a restraining order against Shivers, a musician and DJ, for sending frightening e-mails and “intercepts her private e-mails.”
A judge issued the order based on a “history of emotional abuse.” Renewed several times, it directs Shivers to stay away from his famous ex.
But in a bizarre new twist, Shivers claims in court papers that Perrette is living out her screenplay, titled “Star Crazy,” which outlines steps for vengeance:
- “Stalk him”
- “Schmooze police”
- “Get restraining order”
“For years, I’ve been saying this was going to happen ... in court documents, in police reports,” Coyote Shivers told The NY Post. “And, finally, it has.”
Shivers got into trouble in 2009 for violating the restraining order after sending e-mails to Perrette’s lawyer, who called them “annoying electronic communication.”
He was busted last April for violating the order again when he and Perrette ended up in the same LA sushi eatery, one he often tweeted about.
He was convicted last month and is facing up to a year in prison during sentencing Wednesday. Shivers has his own dark past, say Pauley supporters.
His first wife, Bebe Buell, a musician and the mother of actress Liv Tyler, called Shivers “dangerous ... this is not a fabrication on the part of [Perette] at all."
