'Family' Star: My BF Dragged Me Through Glass

9/27/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jaimee Foxworth -- who briefly played "Judy Winslow" on "Family Matters" -- was just granted a temporary restraining order against her longtime boyfriend after he allegedly did some horrible things to her.

According to the docs, filed in LA County Superior Court, Foxworth claims Michael Shaw physically and verbally abused her ... and at one point grabbed her arm and dragged her along the floor through broken glass.

On another occasion, as Jaimee was feeding her son in the backseat of a car, she claims Shaw "pulled the car over, jumped into the backseat ... tried to push [Jaimee] out of his car, and threatened to drive [her] son away."

The judge granted the TRO the same day the papers were filed -- Shaw has to stay 100 yards away from both her and the kid.

Jamie tells TMZ she "strongly encourages all women to leave unhealthy relationships before it is too late."

Everyone has opinions. Just reading some of these comments...Wow. I've seen the marks that he put on her. I've opened the door when he dropped her off and drove away while she cried. I was there when the day after she had the baby he called her a bit#! on the phone thinking she was in the hospital room alone. He talked to me for 3 hours and barely said one nice word about her..while she was in labor having their baby. We come from a strong family. A family who loves the Lord. Michael didn't introduce Jaimee to church. Her parents did. She grew up in church (Church Of The Harvest). Everyone makes one should judge anyone else..unless they haven't made any mistakes in life. It's nice that Michael's family has his back and Jaimee's family is in her corner...However, this is between Jaimee and Michael. Hopefully they can settle things in a mature manner. That cute little baby deserves the best chances in life. I do agree that the Lord will reveal the truth. God bless.

Oh, and by the way, for those of you who watched "Life After" last week, that was Michael's Church and Pastor that they attended. Michael's effort to give Jaimee some understanding about what life could be about when following the will of God...

Stay safe and NEVER go back to this guy. There is better than that out there. And it is better to just be on your own than to be with a piece of crap like that. Good Luck.

I'm glad she's leaving him, but she needs serious psychological help. After Family Matters she ended up doing drugs and starring in porn vids. Apparently she cleaned her act up, but it sounds like she may still have low self esteem that leads her into the arms of abusive jerks like this guy.

WHOA...I just saw Jamie on Life After about 2 days ago and she was talking about her life after Family Matters and how she did porn so she could make the money close to what she was making on the show.

She had a baby by this dude and was talking about how he was so good to her and helped her turn her life around. She said he never held it against her for doing porn and they had been together for years and years and how wonderful her life was now.

I am shocked at this turn of events between the two of them.

I am shocked at this turn of events b/c when I saw Life After recently, it appeared that their relationship was supper almost perfect ... Glad to know that she is strong enough to know that it is time to leave. Shameful, cause I had this inkling in my head while watching that this guy was faking the whole I care about her mannerism ... shock but not really that surprised. Young lady ... good luck and take care of you first and your son, men like him, you don't need.

hmm... this sounds suspiciously one sided to me. This girl was an alcoholic, pornographic, drug attic, who found a man that didn't care about her past and wanted to be with her anyways. I think it's more than likely she is just being hysterical and ill rational.

Jaimee, you're in our prayers! Keep your head up, you definitely deserve better.

I think this girl was on celebrity rehab with Dr. Drew if I'm not mistaken. This is ashame & I hope she continued to be sober after she left the show. She needs to cut this a..hole loose!
