Last year, Tammy Brawner, wife of “Family Matters” star, Darius McCrary, filed a restraining order against the actor, accusing him of abusing their one-year-old daughter, Zoey. McCrary denied the allegations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Since then, the two have been embroiled in a legal battle over custody and child support, with McCrary ordered to court-appointed monitored visits with his daughter.
But now, in new court documents obtained by The Blast, Brawner is accusing McCrary of violating the terms of their restraining order and custody agreement. In the docs, Brawner says McCray went on the radio and “stated that I have been telling and coaching our 2-year-old daughter to lie and say that ‘dada hurt her.’”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, in her defense, Brawner says she has evidence to prove McCrary has been violent with their daughter. As part of Brawner’s new filing, she attached medical records from a March 2018 incident, when McCrary “partially dislocated our daughter’s arm.”
In that incident, she told officials McCrary took the baby to the bathroom and “grabbed her arm.” But, McCrary claimed he just “grabbed one hand to lift her up and immediately grabbed the other.” Zoey was treated in that incident, and according to reports, the young girl handled it well.
In addition to the injury, Brawner detailed McCray’s custody violation, claiming he showed up to a recent monitored visit with another child and flaked on their court-ordered co-parenting classes.
“I cannot co-parent by myself,” Brawner says. “I have gone above and beyond to parent with Mr. McCrary but he appears to be too bitter and too much of a tyrant to parent with me.”
