“About three weeks ago, DeMario Thornton, aka Raz B, released a video recording via the internet of a conversation that we had…DeMario is screaming at me…he has a deranged demeanor and is not acting like a reasonable person,” Houston wrote in the paperwork.
“After I hung up on DeMario, he continued recording himself and falsely accused me of molesting him.”
The restraining order was signed off by a judge at a Van Nuys, California courthouse with a hearing set for November 22.
Houston claims the video was posted on YouTube and was subsequently picked up by various other websites, causing him “emotional distress” and worries that “he would become physically violent towards me and others.”
Thornton was ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Houston, his home, job and vehicle.
