Gary Dourdan's Ex GF

He Broke My Nose

So I Want a Restraining Order

11/9/2011 12:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Dourdan's ex-girlfriend has filed for a restraining order, claiming he punched her in the face and broke her nose. 

Nicole Vail Cannizzaro claims in the documents, obtained by TMZ, she had broken up with Dourdan in May "due to his excessive drug use, which only worsened after cutting off communication with him."

Nicole claims Gary put recording devices in her home and attempted to break in. She says Sunday night he punched her in the face and broke her nose.  Nicole says she ran to the back alley, where a neighbor called 911. Gary was arrested for felony battery but bailed out.

Nicole is asking that Gary stay 100 yards away from her and her 2 dogs, Charlie and Chanel.

A hearing for the restraining order is set for later this month. Nicole apparently got an emergency protective order from the cops, but it expires next week.

A call to Dourdan's rep was not immediately returned.

If I were Maria his child "girl friend" for 3 years I would sue every media outlet that said it was her that got her nose broken. How messed up that soo many news media outlets assumed it was her.
Damn Gary gets around FAST. Who is this chick? I had a feeling he had some insecurity issues but damn! He stalks white women? Gary needs some serious therapy. I am talking about years of therapy to heal those deep rooted issues.
He was starting to go down hill BEFORE he was fired from CSI.
He caught that case from Anne Green on for rape and battery, then the drugs, then he was seen in Spain high, then he came back to the states, did the premier for Jumping the Broom and then the cars he wiped out, totaled his SUV and left the scene, caught charges, one was dropped and now this?! All I can say is 'what's next?"
Damn Gary you got white women dumping you! Maybe he's not with a sistah cause sistah' done tolerate this mess? Hmmm I wonder.
Gary get cleaned up!
