In a bombshell court filing that has just been released Camille Grammer was granted a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos, after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star claimed he violently assaulted her just days after undergoing cancer surgery.
After having a hysterectomy for endometrial cancer, Grammer was allegedly attacked in an altercation in a Houston hotel room, which has been detailed in court documents. "He grabbed me by the hair, twisted it around his hand, and repeatedly pulled my head into the bed and its headboard," Grammer charged. "[He] succeeded in pulling out swaths of my hair and gave me a large, painful contusion on the side of my head. All the while, I was screaming for help."
Grammer has spoken out about the alleged assault on Twitter, but it is still unclear what happened. "Info will come out today that is jar dropping. And women can't be silenced after being physically abused!" Grammer wrote on Monday. The RHOBH star followed up to let fans know that she was on the road to recovery. "Getting my strength back now that I am at home and wasn't able to deal with talking about it after my cancer surgery or what had happened."
Now Grammer says the attack has left her in a constant state of fear. "I wake up at least twice per night visions of his face as he was attacking me," Grammer said. "I continue to fear for my safety and for the safety of my children, who had grown to trust Mr. Charalambopoulos during the course of my relationship with him." Grammer's distress has grown so pervasive that she has hired a 24/7 entourage to protect her family.
"As soon as Camille returned from Houston, she hired the bodyguards," a source said. "Security has been significantly increased at her home and Camille will keep the security detail in place for the foreseeable future. She isn't taking any chances." While Grammer's response has certainly been understandable, it is all the more appropriate considering her claims that Charalambopoulos is a gun owner.
"I am informed and believe that there are numerous firearms... at his disposal," she wrote in the shocking court documents. Grammer and Charalambopoulos will meet in court on November 19 where a judge will decide whether to grant a permanent restraining order against her alleged attacker. The reality star has since spoken out, urging women in abusive relationships to speak out.
"I want to encourage women everywhere to speak up for themselves when it comes to domestic violence and abuse," Grammer said. "I'm hanging in there and I feel strong."
