‘Scandal’ Star Josh Malina’s Neighbor Gets Restraining Order Over Tree Dispute

Josh Malina‘s neighbor claims the “Scandal” star has been harassing him and his wife for the past three years and he’s had enough — he’s gotten a restraining order.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Malina’s neighbor, Jarod Lam, claims he has been verbally assaulting him from a private number and threatening him.

Lam claims that Malina has accused him of poisoning his trees, at one point yelling at his wife, “You better not f***ing cut my tree!”

Lam says he’s told Malina several times that he had nothing to do with his trees, but Malina continues to harass him.

A judge has granted the temporary restraining order until a hearing on October 17. Malina is not allowed to harass Lam until then, but the judge did not specifically hand down a stay away order since it’s unclear how close their respective houses are.

The Blast reached out to Malina’s rep for comment — so far, no word back.
