'16 & Pregnant' Star -- My Baby Daddy Attacked Me

4/7/2011 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the young women featured on the new season of "16 & Pregnant" claims her baby daddy is such a horrible person -- he threatened to have her raped AFTER he attacked her ... TMZ has learned.


Jennifer Del Rio -- a 17-year-old who makes her debut on the show later this month -- filed documents in Hillsborough County, Florida begging a judge to grant a restraining order against her baby daddy, 19-year-old Josh Smith.

According to the documents filed in March, Del Rio claims Smith -- the father of her twin babies -- had been "harrasing [sic] and threatened [her] saying he will have [her] raped."

Del Rio continued, "[Smith] has attempted to kidnap children." She adds, "Due to [Smith's] violence [Del Rio] is frightened for her life and children's life."

TMZ has learned Smith was arrested back in November for domestic violence against Jennifer and was ordered to complete an educational program. Smith is still in the process of completing the course.

Smith is seen in handcuffs on the promo for the new MTV show -- and we've learned the footage was shot on the same day he was arrested for the domestic violence charge back on November 4 ... just weeks after their twins were born.

In the end, Del Rio failed to appear at the hearing for a restraining order against Smith -- so the request was dropped.

Attempts to reach Smith were unsuccessful. A rep for Del Rio had no comment.

Really this is real life. When babies have babies they act immature. They think they are grown but really they have so much to learn. I was one of them. The thing I don't get is why they made this a show? So that they can teach other children that this **** is cool and normal? It may be a reality but it's not NORMAL behaivor! These kids are becoming celebrities for being stupid. Crazy!

This is classic white trash rednecks. It is only a mtter of time before this loser guy kills her and/or her baby. The only know living in this low life circle. Their parents are to blame as well and should be embarrassed to be seen in public. Low life s***bags, hopefully they will all die and we don't have to hear about them anymore. The world will be a better place.

Kids get knocked up because there is no reason not to. If they are single, they have to work. If they are single and have a child, they get free health care, food stamps, free or discounted housing. Granted its not great living on welfare, but it is better than an unemployed homeless person has. Welfare is broken and needs to be fixed.

You people are strange. You sit in front of your TV's and watch trailer trash like you would an aquarium.

Why don't you just grab your lawn chairs and head over to the nearest ebonic speaking neighborhood and take a seat. Consider it watching your normal trailer trash show...but in 3D.

Conservatives are Cowards    

This show celebrates trash. All of these people demonstrate the worst that America has to offer. Why this crap is on television is completely beyond me.

And LOL@ calling any of the trash that appears on this farce of a show a "star." Clearly, that word has no real meaning anymore.

If he's 19 and she's 17, isn't that rape in Florida?
