Rachel Kneeland, the estranged wife of actor Edward Furlong, claims that he has been abusing cocaine, and is currently on lockdown at an undisclosed hospital, according to court papers RadarOnline.com has obtained. Furlong has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Rachel, pending a hearing on October 20th.
The court docs state,”Edward grabbed me, bruised me, pushed me, made threats of more violence, left messages saying he would hire people to come and beat me with chains and bats. He is smoking cocaine and doing other various drugs. He is very unpredictable.”
Kneeland also asserts that he has left her messages threatening her life, “over 20 messages/text messages in the last 36 hours. He is in lockdown after threatening suicide, and I called 911.”
Kneeland also said she feared that the alleged violence against her would happen again when she gave notice that she was seeking a restraining order. “He is in lockdown in a hospital. I’am afraid to answer his phone calls or tell him because he would lose it,” she says.
The couple have a three year old son, and Kneeland filed for divorce against him in July.
