Lawyer for Matt Kemp's Ex -- Abuse Was Real

1/23/2010 10:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Matt KempThe ex-girlfriend of Matt Kemp -- the L.A. Dodger who is currently dating R&B star Rihanna -- is lashing out at Kemp's people, claiming they are lying about a relationship that was abusive and threatening.

David D. Diamond, Felisha Terrell's attorney, tells TMZ he's pissed off that Kemp's agent is now saying Terrell lied in her 2008 restraining order application against Kemp.

Terrell claimed Kemp was verbally abusive and threatening, but both sides ultimately agreed to drop the matter.

When news of the restraining surfaced earlier this week, Kemp's agent told one outlet, "She chose to file a complaint and shortly thereafter, on her own accord, decided to drop it based on the fact that the statements made within were false."

Diamond says his client never lied: "The temporary restraining order was granted because of an actual and real threat. The matter was quietly resolved until Mr. Kemp's agent began making false public statements."

Diamond adds, "...my hope is that Ms. Terrell tells her story, because it is a compelling tale of betrayal, abuse and survival."

Calls to Kemp's agent were not returned.

SMH @

the people who claim they know Matt. If you knew him number one you wouldn't be on this site writing about it and two, if you know he is a good guy and have enough time to defend him on here then why don't you go to the media and say this?Huh?

Rihanna is digging a deep hole for herself and if she is okay with dating Matt I don't see why we should stop her. Let her make her own mistakes. She will soon find out who Matt is in the long run. Rihanna seems like the type of girl who needs to experience things {herself} and face a real series of hardships before she becomes wise. I still do not believe she is worthy of being labelled a "role model" since I have not seen that side of her yet. If she is happy with Matt then go for it. However, I would suggest to her to stay away from any man with a bad past though.

If I heard anything fishy about anyone I was around I would try my hardest to see if it were true instead of denying it as if I already know the guy. My guess is he is bad news based off of his PDA actions and demeanor. I would definitely peg him a "bad boy" for now. I 'aint praying for Rihanna nor will I ever defend this dude. I will let her live her life while I live mine. She'll learn the hard way anyway, no matter what.
