12/29/2009 1:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Teddy RileyTeddy Riley -- a singer from the R&B group Blackstreet -- is accused of using a guitar from the video game Rock Band in a violent attack on his daughters.

Teddy's 18-year-old daughter Taja Riley was granted a temporary restraining order against her dad -- claiming 43-year-old Teddy abused her and her older sister by "stomping, punching and bashing them" in his L.A. home on December 23.

In the documents, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Taja claims at one point Teddy, "lifted a Rock Band guitar and threatened to kill person(s) w/ it."

Taja claims she suffered several injuries in the alleged altercation -- including "bashes to temple, contusion on face" and "pain in knee."

Teddy has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Taja. The next hearing is set for January.

Whaaaaaaaat?
I never thought I'd hear Teddy Riley and "abuse" in the same sentence.

For those that don't know, Teddy Riley worked on most of Michael Jackson's Dangerous, among many, many other artists.

Man, he has always come across as easy-going to me.
Pray that whatever happened, it's going to work out for him and his daughter.

Disgusting, trashy man. No man worthy of the title lays hands on a woman, much less his daughters, in that manner.
Feel big and important, now, douchebag? You can whip a girl.

Didn't Teddy torch his own recording studio in Virginia Beach to avoid some sort of debt, possibly with the IRS?

What a piece of crap. So much for feeling the love around the holidays. If my husband did that to our daughter-he would have been walking around with that guitar permanetly up his ass.
