Mickey Rooney Files Restraining Order Against Stepson

Mickey claims that he lives in fear of his wife Jan's son.

 

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge has granted Mickey Rooney a temporary restraining order from his stepson, who is accused in court filings of withholding food and medicine from the 90-year-old veteran actor and meddling in his personal finances.

 

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz approved the stay-away order on Monday after attorneys for Rooney sought protection for the Academy Award-nominated actor, claiming he lives in fear of stepson Chris Aber.

 

The order requires Aber to stay 100 yards away from Rooney and his home and to refrain from contacting the actor until a hearing on Feb. 24, when the restraining order may be extended.

 

"Chris is verbally abusive toward Mickey," the court filing states. "He yells and screams at Mickey. He threatens, intimidates, bullies, and harasses Mickey.

 

"Mickey is effectively a prisoner in his own home," the filing states.

 

It accuses Aber of forcing Rooney to make certain personal appearances, and has required him to sign financial documents without reading them.

 

Attempts to find a working phone number for Aber were unsuccessful.

 

The actor's attorneys also obtained a temporary conservatorship for Rooney to protect his personal and financial interests. The order allows the attorneys to secure Rooney's financials assets and obtain control of his website and any financial documents in Aber's possession.

 

Rooney is described in a news release about the case as still being sharp-witted.

 

"All I want to do is live a peaceful life, to regain my life and be happy," Rooney wrote in a statement. "I pray to God each day to protect us, help us endure, and guide those other senior citizens who are also suffering."

 

Rooney's film career spans more than eight decades and he received four Academy Award nominations and an honorary Oscar. In the 1930s and 40s, he played Andy Hardy in a series of films, and received his first Oscar nominations in 1939 for "Babes in Arms" and in 1943 for "The Human Comedy."

There's an error in there, mickey's described as sharp witted when we all know he's pretty dim witted. It's sad when they're ninety years old and just walk around screaming I USED TO BE THE NUMBER ONE BOX OFFICE STAR IN THE WORLD, midget catagory, and now all i get to do is shine my war medals all day. Poor Jan is the one i really feel sorry for, taking care of this egomaniac while waiting for the grim reaper to catch him, but we all know how slippery those tiny leprachauns can be. As for legal costs for his stepson, i'm in!

It was interesting to see Jan Rooney make an appearance on Entertainment Tonight "direct from her hospital bed" (I wonder what's wrong with her...) to refute Mickey's claims. She denied all claims against her son Chris and said her other son who lives with Mickey, Jan, and his wife probably pressured him into signing the documents. There is something weird going on at the Rooney household. I mean, weirder than usual.

 

Also weird: Jan claimed there is indeed a pad lock on their fridge but it isn't to keep Mickey out, but to stop their maids from "pilfering food". Casa Rooney like a wonderful working environment as well!

I think Mic got really upset when they suggested padding the walls of his room, but what has to be done has to be done! The man's elevator does not go up to the top floor.
