Another Day, Another Karrine Steffans Scandal…Darrius McCrary, otherwise known as “Eddie Winslow” from Family Matters has been slapped with a temporary restraining order after his “ex-wife” Karrine filed legal documents accusing him of abuse recently. According to the documents obtained by TMZ, Karrine claims he beat her with a belt and choked her in from of her son earlier this year. She also claims that he choked her and shoved her into a car in front of a crowd of people this past November.
A few weeks ago, Karrine drummed up a little publicity after posting the following message on her website
For the past several years, I have been involved in a highly abusive relationship. I have been choked, whipped with belts, thrown about, berated, belittled, raped, and disregarded as a human being. I have been abandoned and embarrassed, then, loved and coddled.She also encouraged women that were being abused or knew someone that was being abused to call the National Domestic Abuse Hotline.
I have been caught in a vicious cycle and have left on many occasions, just to return.
I have found little support from my friends and family because I complain, and I cry, then I go back for more. I go back knowing that, one day, he’ll kill me but he’s all I have. He’s the only one who understands because he’s stuck in this cycle, too.
Why is it so hard to take her serious? I don’t think abuse is a joke and I don’t believe in a person deserving to get their butt whopped on the regular, no matter what they do, but seriously…In the past two years, it’s been a never ending cycle of restraining orders and police reports.
