Actor Kenyon Glover Given Restraining Order Blocking Him Going Near Assault Victim

Recent reports have surfaced that actor and filmmaker Kenyon Glover was handed down a permanent restraining order by a California judge protecting a woman the judge says he assaulted.

TheCineTalk has the scoop.

Verified sources are reporting that Judge Alfred Coletta granted a restraining order against “The Young & The Restless” alum in Los Angeles. The California judge heard oral arguments in the Kenyon Demorio Glover lawsuit and ruled the victim was assaulted.

Glover, 45, who is an actor, filmmaker, and ordained minister according to his instagram (kenyondglover), appeared in court in connection with an attack on a woman whom he was providing spiritual guidance, acting as the woman’s spiritual advisor, court documents show.

Reports state Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Alfred Coletta, who presided over the case, knows his way around a courtroom as the former Deputy District Attorney and 30-year veteran prosecutor with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. 

Judge Coletta pointed to Glover’s actions after the fact to suggest he acted wantonly, and gave merit to the victim. “I do find her credible,” Judge Coletta told Glover, according to court documentation.

“The court takes notice of the evidence presented as clear and convincing,” Coletta told Glover, court records state.

The decision comes after the court heard testimony from both the victim and Glover, who admitted he was in possession of a handgun, admitted to removing the weapon from the holster, and handling the weapon in the victim’s presence in the time period preceding the assault.

Testimony in the hearing revealed that Glover had an extensive history of domestic violence, where he had previously assaulted his ex-wife. Testimony also revealed that Glover had been arrested and charged with a prior domestic violence offense.

The testimony is disturbing,” said Judge Coletta. “I am going to grant the restraining order.” Glover’s personal conduct order is to “stay away from you” the judge told the protected party.

The “stay away” order restricts Glover from reaching out to the protected person, either directly or indirectly in any way, jeopardizing the safety of the victim, including, but not limited to, improperly stalking the victim, and bars him from putting the victim’s personal security at risk.

“It is clear that there’s reference in the declaration that Mr. Glover has indicated he would retaliate if she were to communicate the information. And I have to take it on face value that the victim is concerned for her safety, well-being, and her home,” the judge said.

The court found “there is an ability for Mr. Glover to come to California. He’s a licensed driver in California. He has access to the state. He has access to other social media tools if he wishes to make contact with the victim, so I will grant the restraining order,” Coletta ruled.

“He is not to contact you by email, text messages, or other social media or electronic means, devices, or in writing personally,” the judge said. “He’s to stay away from you for 100 yards in public, your home, your vehicle, and your workplace. That will be my order,” the judge told the victim, according to the court report.

The court order states that Glover “cannot own, possess, have, buy or try to buy, receive or try to receive, or in any other way get guns, other firearms, or ammunition.”

The judge ruled “it’s going to be also that Mr. Glover is not to harass or intimidate, threaten, stalk, assault, hit, abuse, destroy the safety and peace of the victim,” according to the court order.

“I find that there was an event, I think the event was one where Mr. Glover exceeded what he felt was perhaps permissive behavior that would have caused him to act that way,” Judge Coletta stated at the end of the hearing.

Verified media outlets are reporting that Glover is a former professional basketball player with the National Basketball Association (NBA). Other credible sources state that Glover has maintained employment as a fitness trainer in Texas.

Court records state that Glover was served with the restraining order at PickUp USA Fitness located at 989 W. Sandy Lake Road, Suite 500, Coppell, Texas 75019 by the Dallas County Constable’s Office.
