Jeremy London Files Restraining Orders Against Skeptical Family
Jeremy London wants his family to shut up.
On Wednesday, the Party of Five alum filed restraining orders against his family, who have publicly doubted the actor’s claims that he was kidnapped and forced to do drugs during a harrowing six-hour ordeal earlier this month.
The orders were filed against London’s mom Debbie Nielsen, twin brother and fellow actor Jason London and his twin’s girlfriend Sofia Karsten in Los Angeles. The complaint said the trio have ignored requests to stop giving interviews about Jeremy after he was reportedly “abducted” on June 10. Uh-Huh. London has a documented history of substance abuse and even completed a stint in rehab last fall. At the time, the embattled actor told police he was kidnapped while changing a flat tire outside a Palm Springs gas station. He was allegedly forced at gunpoint to drive around, buy alcohol, and take drugs. Brandon Adams, 26, has pleaded not guilty to five counts, including kidnapping and theft, in connection with the alleged abduction.
London’s brother and mother conducted interviews with E! and PEOPLE days later and said they were concerned about his mental stability. They added that while he had recently been sober they were concerned that he may have relapsed. London wants a judge to issue an injunction preventing his family from giving any additional interviews, which London claims are hurting his reputation and career.
Wait — what career? This dude hasn’t had a job since 7th Heaven went off the air!
“Jeremy filed these orders against his family for them to stop giving unauthorized interviews to the press,” London’s attorney, Catherine Lombardo, told PEOPLE. “What they’ve said is false, misleading and harmful to his personal reputation and career.”
