EXCLUSIVE

0920-adrienne-maloof-paul-nassif-tmzAdrienne Maloof's estranged husband, Dr. Paul Nassif, has been ordered by the court to stay away from Adrienne and their three children ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ obtained a copy of the the temporary restraining order -- granted yesterday -- which requires Nassif to stay at least 100 yards away from Adrienne and their boys.

The order also states Nassif must stay away from Adrienne's home and the children's school.

Adrienne's TRO request was granted by the same judge who gave Adrienne temporary custody of their children yesterday.

As TMZ first reported ... Adrienne accused Paul of spanking and choking the children in her request for temporary custody.

A hearing is scheduled for October 9th to decide whether the TRO and custody orders will be made permanent.

Paul will be off the show now, just like the ther casualties like Simon and Russell. This won't give her pause though. She's probably already prepping her story for next season, and will Bo out promoting her book about nothing.

Adrienne,

Your boys need their father. He was good enough to be married to for so long and now he is an abuser? Clearly people can see what you are doing. It's terrible when wives do this to the kids fathers. I see this all the time in court. He is far from an abuser and you look like a bitter woman.

Restraining orders are easy to get and mostly used as leverage, especially when there are kids involved and custody issues.
-
Phylis Schlafly article:
"Violence Against Women Act Abuses Rights of Men"
-
"A recently issued American Bar Association dokument called "Tool for Attorneys" provides lawyers with a list of suggestive questions to encourage their clients to make domestic-violence charges. Knowing that a woman can get a restraining order against the father of her children in an ex parte proceeding without any evidence, and that she will never be punished for lying, domestic-violence accusations have become a major tactic for securing sole child custody."

I would never think that Paul was abusive in any way or form. He always seemed so nice, patience and loving towards Adrienne and their kids. I don't believe he was violent in any way. I feel so sad that people can't be amicable during their divorce for the sake of their children. Somewhere Brandi Glanville is wickedly smiling. She called Adrienne out during the reunion show for her marriage being in trouble.

Such a shame that what appeared to be a nice, solid couple has resorted to "front yard fighting" tactics for all the world to see. I have no doubt that both Adrienne and Paul love their children very much and personal stress has caused them to act out in ways they never imagined. Maybe it's time to put on the brakes and resolve the issues at hand responsibly and do what's best in the interest of the children. That includes involvement from BOTH parents in their lives. Or they have the option of contuining to battle it out which will forever be inscribed on the internet as a memoir for their children in years to come.

Spanking is believable here; choking, no. He's gonna get screwed over in this, doesn't deserve it.
