'Stepmom' Screenwriter

My Kid's Ex-Basketball

Coach is Terrorizing Me

9/10/2012 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0907-gigi-grazer-gettyGigi Levangie -- the best-selling novelist who also wrote the movie "Stepmom" -- says her life is in danger ... and the alleged threat is her kid's ex-basketball coach ... this according to docs obtained by TMZ.

Levangie -- the ex-wife of Hollywood mega-producer Brian Grazer -- recently filed a request for a restraining order against Anthony Jones ... claiming he's been stalking her for several months.

In the docs, Gigi admits things weren't always so crazy with Jones ... not only did he coach her kid, she also invested in his "small business" and even allowed him to live in her guesthouse for a few weeks back in April.

But according to Gigi, something went terribly wrong -- 'cause after he moved out, Jones began following Gigi to work ... harassing her at her home and maniacally calling her on the phone -- DOZENS of times AN HOUR. Gigi claims he once trapped her in her own driveway.

Gigi says the "frightening and erratic behavior" got so bad she was forced to hire a private security team to protect her family (she and Grazer have two sons, ages 13 and 9). Gigi claims she's afraid for the safety of herself and her kids.

She is asking the court to keep Jones 100 yards away from her and her children at all times.  A hearing is set for September 12th.

We reached out to Jones for comment -- who said he had no idea about the restraining order.

This guy needs more than a restraining order he needs a mental hospital.

You're mean, TMZ - no one should be reminded that she is the screenwriter behind "Stepmom".

Maybe the guy is harassing her because he actually paid to see this disaster in theater, and tried to get his money back from her ever since.

"Sounds like a very valid reason to me.

I want my 2 dollars. Four weeks, twenty papers, that's two dollars. Plus tip
.
That's the same thing that's going on here except the man just wants his basketball uniform back from her son. He's not stalking you. A simple misunderstanding

This sounds like a relationship gone bad
After a break up some men can't get over it
Then the non-stop calling/texting and stalking starts
So scary omg!

I wonder why he lived in the guest house? She was shagg'n the coach making all kinds of "Prison Promises". She was in it for the physical & he was in it for...$ or more $$ for his business.

Stepmom was pretty good movie, one of few movies to have a script that was fair and balanced about the genders.
Lot of modern movies make the ex-husband/dad the bad guy and mom the poor victim of something while she plays the saint.
This movie, Dad was the stable good guy, ex wife was the selfish manipulator, gave a realistic picture of how those situations can play out.
Excellent acting from the whole cast, adults and kids, really convincing as their characters.
