A Malibu woman has requested a temporary restraining order against Daniel Baldwin, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively. Helen Smith
told an L.A. County Superior Court judge that Baldwin had threatened her family after she fired a nanny, who turned out to be the actor's niece.
Smith said that after she discharged the nanny, Baldwin called her husband and left "a hostile message regarding his niece Jennifer Keurhler who was employed as our nanny." She said Baldwin also texted her twice on July 27 asking her "not to threaten his niece." Smith added that she had no idea what Baldwin was talking about but found the situation frightening.
"I know that Daniel Baldwin had had numerous issues with drugs and was concerned for the safety of my children and family."
Baldwin, who most recently appeared on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, has been very publicly in and out of rehab several times. He also appeared on VH1 Celebrity Rehab.
A judge has not yet issued a ruling on the request.
