Mickey Rooney was granted a temporary restraining order from his stepson Christopher Aber.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered the restraining order after the actor’s attorneys claimed he lives in fear of his stepson.
Rooney, 90, filed a petition that says Aber “threatens, intimidates, bullies and harasses Mickey.”
The BBC cited documents that allege Rooney was deprived of medication and food. The documents also state that Rooney’s passport and other identification cards were confiscated by Aber.
“Mickey is extremely fearful that Chris will become physically threatening against Mickey and may even attempt to kidnap Mickey from his home,” the actor’s lawyers said.
According to the Associated Press the order requires Aber to stay 100 yards away from Rooney and his home. The restraining order also states that Aber is not to contact Rooney until a hearing on Feb. 24.
