Charlie Sheen‘s former fiancee has been granted a temporary restraining order as the Los Angeles Police Department continues its criminal investigation into the ex-“Two and a Half Men” star, the Associated Press reports.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge granted the order to Scottine Ross, a former porn star who performed under the name Brett Rossi.
A police spokesperson confirmed this week that the LAPD has opened an investigation into Sheen, with the department’s threat management unit leading the investigation.
The probe was opened following reports from the National Enquirer and RadarOnline of an audio recording purportedly threatening to have Ross’ “head kicked in.”
RadarOnline has named Ross as the person who recorded the alleged threat.
In her application for the order, Ross said that she feared Sheen because of the purported threat, as well as two alleged domestic abuse incidents, the AP reported.
Ross filed suit against Sheen in December, claiming that the actor physically, psychologically and emotionally abused her, and failed to disclose his HIV status prior to having sex with her.
The Enquirer and RadarOnline, which have reported on the alleged recording but not published it, said Thursday that they will not comply with a subpoena to turn over the recording.
Enquirer editor-in-chief and RadarOnline editorial director Dylan Howard said in a statement to TheWrap that he believes the warrant is unlawful.
“We believe the search warrant is illegal and violates federal and state law prohibiting the use of search warrants against media companies who are reporting news and information,” he said.
