“Bachelor” franchise creator Mike Fleiss was not only ordered to stay away from his estranged wife, Laura, but a judge also told him to stay away from the family dog.
According to a court order obtained by The Blast, Laura Fleiss was given full custody of the family dog, Nina.
In a request filed by last week by Mrs. Fleiss, she asked a judge in Los Angeles to order Mike to stay away from her, the couple’s 4-year-old son, and the family home. But she included a request for custody and protection for the family’s Doberman pinscher, Nina.
The judge agreed and the order states he must “not take, sell, transfer, encumber, conceal, molest, attack, strike, or otherwise dispose of the following animals: Nina, brown doberman pinscher.”
Laura was given sole custody of the dog and the order says she is “given the sole possession, care, and control of the animals.”
As The Blast first reported, the “Bachelorette” creator was accused of violently attacking his wife at the couple’s Hawaii home. She claims the attack came after his demand she get an abortion. The incident was caught on the house’s security cameras.
Laura was awarded a temporary restraining order after claiming in documents that Fleiss “grabbed my body, forcibly pinned me up against the wall and held me there. After I broke free, he continued to use his arms and hands to aggressively push me away from him as he walked outside the door.”
She later stated, “Our unborn child and I could have been severely injured.”
Laura claims she is “extremely traumatized from the incident.”
Mike Fleiss filed a response to his wife’s accusations, saying she was the one who attacked him after he claims to have found out about her lying about being birth control.
He says that he last heard from Laura on July 9 (he says he left Hawaii for Los Angeles for a work commitment) and that he has “no idea” she or their son is.
“Due to Laura’s historical emotional instability,” Fleiss says, “I am concerned about her and our son while in her care. I want to make sure they are safe.”
