As you know, reality TV star Althea Heart is cooling her heels in jail for 10 days. Heart, real name Althea Eaton, was locked up on July 19 for contempt of court after she attempted to confront her baby daddy, Benzino, real name Raymond Scott, in an Atlanta courtroom.
According to blogger theJasmineBrand.com, Heart filed a Temporary Protective Order (TPO) against Benzino on June 24th.
The TPO request cited domestic violence, holding her against her will, and threatening to kidnap their infant son.
Heart cried that, without the TPO, Benzino would continue to stalk and harass her.
theJasmineBrand.com -- On July 19th, the judge granted Althea a 12 month protective order against Benzino which lasts from July 19th 2016 to July 19th 2017. Benzino was ordered to stay 500 yards away from his finance and her newborn. Further, the order awarded Althea temporary custody of their son.
Benzino was ordered to complete a family violence intervention program and has to show proof of completion to the court by February. The judge ordered that Benzino can’t possess any firearms and the local sheriff will take possession of any weapons until the TRO expires next year.
According to court docs, following the court hearing, Althea confronted Benzino despite the judge instructing her not to communicate with him. The judge then found Althea in contempt of court and ordered her to be locked up in a Georgia jail for 10 days for civil contempt. According to official records, the reality star was arrested immediately following the hearing on the 19th and has been in jail since.
