'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 really feel sorry for this Josh kid...Does anyone see how the Del Rio family pushes his buttons. And when the girls pushy parents have taken over her decisions and call all the shots in this girls life and treats this guy Joshua like ****. They are so quick to threaten this kid with the police.Especially if he does not agree with them the mother has a fit
if she does not get her way.And its not her relationship or babies to tell her daughter what to do. They have a father, let him be one without the Del Rio Bossing around and threats. The Del Rio family has decided to kick this guy to the curb a long time ago you can tell they are clearly trying to erase him from the babies life. Those are his Boys, and they have the nerve to get mad about putting his last name for his own boys.And then get mad at him and as he responded the mother wants to scold him and threaten to call security, cause she again did not get her way. Back off lady...You are always scolding this guy every time he tries to do something positive. You turn it around and make it ugly...And that scene when Joshua got arrested... it was the girl doing all the screaming in front of the babies. She needs parenting class.Is everyone that stupid not to see whats going on. This guy needs to be careful cause theis girl is just like her mettling mother. Joshua needs a good Lawyer and should sue for his parental rights,and I bet the controlling Grandma Del Rio will watch her step.And take her foot off of the boys neck.And what about his family they have been quiet and nice about the whole thing.This girl is not innocent herself it takes two to get it on. And they scold this guy for everything. she is controlling just like her mother.Allowing her family to take over her relationship, she is stupid.

The Del Rio Family plays too many mind games...Get a lawyer Josh your cousin is careful they cause the fight and then blame you. I am sure you are a nice boy but protect yourself as well. Get a is clear to see they are trying to get rid of you provoking you then you go off being confused and hurt. Take parenting class, and anger management...get your rights with your boys...And kick this drama queen like her mother the curb obviously people who treat others like that do not give any care for you, and she should be ashamed of herself for not defending you, and blaming you totally instead of her mother who is the real peoblem here provoking you so they can call the police and get rid of you, getting more rights making you look worse They are strange people. Get a lawyer, Get your rights.
