A judge granted a restraining order for Cincinnati Bengals star Ja’Marr Chase who says he’s being harassed by a woman he met during a one-night stand 2 years ago.
Chase was granted a restraining order on Tuesday, Aug. 15. He said Ambar Hunter has been “harassing” him and his mom since July 2021.
“Earlier today Mr. Chase filed a restraining order in Los Angeles County in connection with Ms. Hunter’s ongoing harassment of Mr. Chase and his family since 2021,” his attorney said in a statement.
“After exhausting every out of court remedy, he was left with no other option. Mr. Chase intends to use all legal options to protect himself and family from this unwarranted harassment. We have no further comment while this matter is pending.”
The Bengals wide receiver said Hunter posted his and his mother’s personal cell phone numbers on Instagram. Since then they have been flooded with unwanted calls and texts.
Hunter claims their one-night stand produced a child. However, Chase says they don’t have a child together and Hunter has refused to subject the child to a DNA test to prove he’s not the father.
Chase’s lawyers say Hunter posted photos of another person’s child claiming the child belongs to her and Chase.
Chase complained that Hunter’s “ongoing harassment scheme” — which includes tagging the Bengals and the NFL in her Instagram Stories — is an attempt to harm him and negatively impact his football career.
Hunter’s Instagram page, where she’s known as Ambar Nicole, has been deactivated.
