Former Playmate of the Year Fears for Her Life

9/1/2009 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dalene Kurtis2002 Playmate of the Year Dalene Kurtis thought taking a vacation to Hawaii with her boyfriend was a great idea ... that is, until he allegedly used her as a punching bag and then threatened to kill her.

Kurtis was granted a temporary restraining order earlier this month against an ex she claims pushed her, punched her and choked her during a recent trip to Hawaii. She claims the ex said he was "gonna kill [her]," "slit [her] throat" and that she was a "f**king whore."

She then claims four days later he choked her until she couldn't breathe, stomped on her stomach, punched her, broke her finger, and spit in her face. That's when she (finally) called the cops and had him arrested.

Kurtis was granted a TRO, which includes her two-year-old son. She's scheduled to be in court later today to try to get the order made permanent.

We've also learned Kurtis recently filed for a substitute of attorney, hiring Ron Rale (Anna Nicole's former attorney in the Howard K. Stern case) from Trope and Trope ... who had "no comment" when we called about Kurtis' case.

This should be a lesson to all women. If a man hits or threatens you LEAVE.PLEASE JUST LEAVE!Some people are making a joke out of it or saying she probably deserved it. But that's B.S. Hes probably a jealous loser. When you date a woman in her line of work you have got to control your jealousy b/c she's going to get all kinds of attention. I hope she never takes him back and I hope he gets help.Nobody should be acting violently to their girlfriend/wife or boyfriend/husband. Once it happens it must likely will happen again.

Her fake breasts have dropsy...time for new surgery. When women enter the world of whoredom, they attract abusers who think they own their nasty crotch. When will the attorneys ever advise them to lie on a professional therapist's couch for awhile, instead of in bed with an equally sick man for money? It's time for everyone to take responsibility....

This is disgusting. I cannot believe the comments that have been made here. There is never a reason to hit anyone and unless you know someone personally, who are these people to make judgements!

She person was physically hurt by another human being and he person should be locked up..... What she looks like, does for a living and where she goes has no relevance here.... She was beat up-who does not get that.

It makes me sick to my stomach that ANYONE would think that this is ok

These comments are unbelievable. Some of the same people that are talking ill about this woman stating she probably deserved her beat down, are the same ones sympathizing for Rhianna. What has the world come to? Just b/c Riri is a mega selling star you feel sorry as opposed to a playmate, when some of you probably has her issue. She should be shown the same respect as any woman regardless of her career path. She was a victim as well.
