Clare Kramer — best known for playing Courtney in “Bring It On” — believes her estranged husband is a danger to both herself and her four children and alleges he abused her physically and emotionally.
Kramer was granted a temporary restraining order against Brian Keathley, her estranged husband. According to court documents, Kramer filed for divorce on June 2, 2017 requesting sole physical custody of their four young children (ages 9, 7, 5 and 4).
Kramer says that ever since she filed for divorce, Keathley has “become more abusive toward me, sometimes in front of our children. She says she is living in a “paralyzed state of fear since his mother told me that if I ever left Brian that he would kill himself.”
On December 8, 2017, Kramer claims she was doing dishes at the sink when “Brian hit me from behind so hard that it was stinging for approximately 10 minutes.” She says when she confronted him over it, he blamed it on their 4 and 5-year-old sons.
“I would not mistake a hit by my 4 or 5 year old boys,” Kramer says in her declaration in support of her restraining order, “each weighing 42 pounds, with the hit of my 48 year old husband who weighs 350 pounds.”
Kramer claims Keathley keeps several guns at their home and threatened her with one recently.
On January 5, 2018, Kramer says she was playing “Words With Friends” with a male colleague of hers. She claims Keathley repeatedly questioned her about whether it was appropriate to play the game with another guy. When Kramer didn’t agree with him, she says he responded by saying, “If you were forced by gunpoint you’d give a truthful answer.”
Kramer — who also played Glory for 13 episodes on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer — also claims that Keathley put a GPS device on her car without her knowledge, has called her various four-letter words in front of their children that we shouldn’t repeat, and threatened and belittled her in front of the kids whenever she questioned him.
On January 8, Kramer was granted the restraining order and Keathley was ordered to keep 100 yards away from her and the kids. He was also ordered to move out of the house (which Kramer says she owns from before their marriage).
The two sides are due in court on January 31.
Last week, Keathley responded to Kramer’s divorce filing and is seeking joint custody of the kids. He is also requesting spousal support and wants Kramer to pay his attorneys fees.
