Mickey Rooney -- My Stepson's Trying to Rob Me!

2/15/2011 4:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mickey Rooney's stepson has just been ordered to stay 100 yards away from the 90-year-old actor -- on grounds he "threatens, intimidates ... and harasses Mickey" ... and is trying to steal his fortune.


An L.A. judge issued the stay-away order today -- after the actor's 52-year-old stepson Christopher Aber allegedly tried to coerce Rooney into signing over his assets. Aber's wife has also been ordered to stay away from the actor.

But money ain't all Mickey's worried about -- according to his petition, "Mickey is extremely fearful that Chris will become physically threatening against Mickey and may even attempt to kidnap Mickey from his home."

In fact, Mickey asked the judge to appoint a temporary conservator to protect his assets in the wake of his stepson's alleged threats.

The judge granted his request and appointed Rooney's lawyer to serve as conservator.

There are two sides to every story. Unfortunately, Mickey has been taken for a ride by OTHER family members. He LOVES Mickey and would NEVER harm him in anyway! He has devoted his life to his mother and Mickey when others did not. Remember Mickey is 90 years old! I am 50 something and easily confused. Wait until you hear everything before you judge.

Requesting a conservator sounds like a smart move.

Just a thought, Mickey: look to the stepson's mother - your beautiful and adoring wife. The apple usually doesn't fall far from the tree.

I cannot believe the source of this story is coming from Mark and Charlene the heroin users. Before people judge this situation everyone should know the real facts. Mark and Charlene have been guests at Mickey and Jan's home for about a year now. While Jan and Mickey were away traveling for work, Mark and Charlene took it upon themselves to steal and sell all of Jan and Mickeys sentimental keepsakes on Ebay. How could someone make $19,000 from selling Mickeys prized possessions and claim they care about him? Mark and Charlene are brainwashing Mickey. If anything Mark and Charlene should have the restraining order out on them. Mark and Charlene legally changed their last name to "ROONEY" Why would anyone do such a thing unless they were the ones trying to become famous and steal Mickey's hard earned money? Mark and Charlene are currently unemployed living in Mickey and Jan's home, so PLEASE tell me who you think is trying to steal his money...
A God please be with Jan & Mickey.

You don't mess with a guy who has lived 90 years and put up with Judy Garland. He's one tough MoFo.
