Little Women: LA stars Christy and Todd Gibel appeared in court for their domestic violence restraining order case. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the order Christy filed against her estranged husband has been extended.
In court papers obtained from Los Angeles Superior Court, Christy and Todd appeared in court on Wednesday, May 29.
Todd’s counsel requested a continuance.
“Petitioner does not object,” the court papers read. “The court finds good cause to lengthen time to the next hearing.”
The restraining order has been extended to July 9, 2019.
“Any temporary orders are to remain in full force and effect until the continued hearing date,” the filing read.
Christy, 41, filed a Domestic Violence Protection Order on May 8, 2019. She asked that her daughter from a previous relationship, Autumn, 19, be protected as well.
A source close to the reality star told Radar of the relationship, “She was in a toxic marriage with someone who treated her like crap and promised her things he couldn’t keep.”
The source added Christy was “miserable.”
“There is a lot of behind the scenes that took place that wasn’t aired,” the insider continued. “It was a sexless marriage.”
In Christy’s declaration, she claimed Todd “has always had a volatile temper throughout the marriage.”
She said it came to an “all-time high” when she brought up the separation.
"On or about April 18, 2019, I told respondent that our marriage was not working, and we should figure out our next steps,” she claimed. “I mentioned that I was concerned for his wellbeing and asked him repeatedly to seek help – this was a common occurrence during our marriage. Respondent began to yell and threaten me. Even as far as to throw/break household items.”
She added that he ripped up their mail.
“He has made derogatory remarks everyday about me, my makeup, cooking, weight and dyslexia,” she alleged. “He has blackmailed me on numerous occasions to manipulate me into staying with him, he beats on my bedroom door late at night while I am sleeping, he has tried to barricade me out of our home several times.”
The reality star also accused him of stealing her medical prescriptions on numerous occasions.
She then told all on an alleged incident that took place 4th of July weekend in 2015 when the family was in San Diego.
“Respondent took medication that was prescribed for me for pain in my neck,” she said. “He then became violent. He started slapping me and holding me down, so I could not move.”
Her daughter contacted security.
“I am fearful of respondent and afraid what he will do if I am not granted protection,” she wrote. “Respondent has mentioned that he is depressed and working with a therapist. His mental state makes him unpredictable.”
She also claimed he hacked into her computer and posted private messages on his Instagram account between her and another man. He accused her of having an online affair with another little person from New York.
Christy revealed on Instagram that she is now dating the other man.
