'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.

I'm so tired of hearing about these low life tramps, enough already, they are not "celebrities" they are just trashy teen girls who don't know how to use birth control and are terrible mothers, people that age are not old and mature enough to take care of a baby, thats why most of them leave it all up to their parents to take care of the baby while they go out and party, drink, do drugs, whatever they want, I really don't understand why these shows are on the air glamorizing this crap, its pathetic, thats why I don't waste my time watching MTV anymore cause of all of these stupid shows. Is it really that hard to take a little pill everyday or get a shot every 3 months? no its not and thats why these girls are dumb as rocks, now someone is going to have to MAKE them use it cause if not they are going to end up with 5 kids and on the maury show looking for their "babies daddy" it will happen.

Boy, this is a classy bunch of kids. The only thing worse than their white trash behavior is the fact that they're procreating.

I just want to clear the record that he did not ever beat her she falsely told him she was pregnate the first time just so she could get pregnate... then she an her family started being crazy when the boys was born because they thought his family was trash because they did not make the income that the other family did there was even a dispute about what name it would take ..He is a great boy an he is not white trash he loves his kids more than anything!! so you guys are falseing accusing him!

First off, I think using the term "white trash" is an offensive term. Just because a young teen gets pregnant does not mean they are white trash. Secondly, this girl is not white so don't jump to conclusions when you do not know anything about her. And who is to say she and other girls are getting pregnant to be on 16 and pregnant and make money. MTV found her. She didn't even apply. Therefore it wasn't her plan to be on this show. She comes from a wonderful loving family who instilled good morals in her, but sometimes teens slip. Hell we all slip. And newsflash people have been getting pregnant at 16 for years. MTV hasn't raised this statistic. Sex is natural and while having kids this young isn't viewed positively in out country in some places it is. 16-18 is when the body is best ready for a child, and back in the day it was the norm. I could rant about this for hours. Romeo and Juliet, yes a play, but still she was 13 and had sex yet we glorify Shakespeare to this day. In the end, teens are having sex. 12 year olds are having sex. Maybe someone should worry about that a little more than judging someone who already had the kids.

Yes, she immediately regretted having sex but now she has two kids to love and hopefully MTV will allow you to see this. And if there is a show that is glorifying teen pregnancy... it's the Secret Life of the American Teenager. It's all about cheating, lies, and sex. Tons of the characters have had babies and still want sex.

Just stop judging people you don't know.

@jus sayin get it right please and dont stereotype all young mothers.I had my 1st child at 16,another at 18,And my last child at 21 and they all have the same father and we are still together and he is a college grad and im on my way to get mine as well for dentistry so please watch what u say about the next person because that might be what you become.This show really irritates me for the simple fact that these kids got mtv behind them 100% so they are thinking "why not get pregnant get paid for it and be a tv star".It's pathetic and they are making it seem ok to degrade this generation of yougsters for money because these teens and kids nowadays are all about money and seemigly they will do ANYTHING to get it

i realize that this show just ruins the reality of teen pregnancy because 80% of the time the outcome doesn't even happen like that. yeah sure they get pregnant but most of the time the baby daddy isnt in the babys life making it harder to for a young mom to make it on her own. in my situation im actually still the baby daddy and my son is a wonderful happy kid. so for this show it makes young parents like me and my fiance work harder just because two other young parents want to be careless and helpless!
