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.

It doesn't matter if he can take it with him or not. It's HIS MONEY! He earned it and he can burn it in a bonfire if he wants to. Shameful to pick on elderly who have served and protected our Nation. Shameful to people who turn a blind eye to it.

Why is his stepson even taking care of him? He would be better off spending his own money [instead of this loser] and hiring someone who would really care about him and his needs. How pathetic that his is what it's come to for him. I pray for Mickey and his health and that he gets the great care he deserves. Hey, Mick? Spend it ALL before ya' go!! No free rides for anyone!!

Mickey lost all his money at the tracks betting on the horses at Hollywood park other places. My grandfather told me to collect if I ever ran into him. Try Clyde Blunt blacksmith who put shoes on the horses and never bet. Mickey was a nice guy who needed a leg up at one time.

Mickey Rooney I know how you feel. My live in friend has gone
through the same thing by his brother and sister-in-law.
they have coerced him into signing his life ins over to them.
by not telling him what he was signing.just sign it they said
they did it to his sister to.
Is there anyway they can be made to return every cent they took?
He had dementia and got confused easy. They should Pay for what they did pay it back.

I have taken excellent care of my parents since 1990 when my dad became partially paralized and suffered with all stages of PD unil his death in 2000. Since then I have cared for my mother who now has Alzheimer's. My parents moved into my home in 1985 and in the last few years I have been accused of stealing and treating my mother poorly. This is very common behavior for aging parents. Perhaps Mickey at age 90 is experiencing some dementia? Was his grandson proven guilty? His wife is much younger, so why didn't she protect Mickey? Mickey has a reputation for being Nasty and wanting recognition. I agree with other comments that there are always 2 sides to every story!

Glad he got his ducks in a row and a conservator was appointed. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have family, or family they can trust.

Mickey is totally out of his mind. This son has been his only friend over past 30 years. Other son who steered things up is heroin addict, back in Mickeys life trying to start trouble for Chris. Poor Mickey is totally out of his mind.
