Christy Gibel — one of the stars of the Lifetime series "Little Women: LA" — claims her husband threatened her after she said they she should separate, so now she's gotten a temporary restraining order against him.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Gibel was granted a TRO last week against her husband, Todd Gibel. He was ordered to stay 100 yards away from Christy and her 19-year-old daughter, Autumn. He was also ordered to move out of the couple's home in Santa Clarita, CA.
The couple was married in 2014 but Christy says she told Todd last month that the marriage "was not working" and they should figure out their next steps. She claims Todd began to "yell and threaten" her and broke several household items. Christy says she took Autumn and left for her parents' house.
A few days later, Christy claims she returned to the home and found Todd opening her and her daughter's mail and ripping it up. She claims Todd then began posting about their relationship on Instagram, which she says led to her being harassed online.
According to Christy, she returned to the home on May 6 and Todd began "yelling, cursing and threatening" her. She again left and says she noticed later in the day that Todd began changing the account information on her internet and cable so she could not access it.
While those incidents occurred over the course of the last few months, she claims she "endured" a lot more during their five-year marriage. Christy claims Todd "made derogatory remarks every day" about her makeup, cooking, weight and dyslexia. She also claims he "blackmailed" and manipulated her into staying with him and threatened to "ruin" her.
Christy Gibel also referenced an incident in 2015 where she claims he "started slapping" her and holding her down in a hotel room.
The TRO is in place until a hearing on May 29.
