Christian Chavez

Accused of Attempted Murder

By Ex-Boyfriend

Christian Chavez -- Mexican soap actor turned international pop star -- tried to MURDER his ex-boyfriend with a knife ... this according to court docs filed by the ex-BF and obtained by TMZ.

We broke the story ... Chavez and Ben Stewart-Kruger were both arrested back in April following a domestic dispute at their Bev Hills pad.

After the incident, Ben obtained a temporary restraining order against Chavez -- after filing documents with the court in which he explained:

"[Christian] attacked me, broke down bathroom door, armed with knife, attempted murder."

In the docs, Ben explained, "We dated, I broke up with him, he was required to move out the day before this incident."

"A verbal argument caused this issue. I was locked in the bathroom when police arrived."

Despite Ben's explosive allegations, officials have decided not to prosecute Chavez ... for now at least ... because there wasn't sufficient evidence to back Ben's story.

Still, a judge DID grant Ben's request for a temporary restraining order against Chavez -- requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away.

The two sides are due back in court on May 23.

He's become too rich to prosecute. He'll get away with it and the publicity will make him more $$$ by putting him in the spotlight.

Duh like the police were not going to get your statement and just let you stay in the bathroom.
.
Give it time and they'll be back together. This guy doesn't want to lose his cash cow permanently.

Beverly Hills has a new city ordinance that says you must be gay and retarded to live within city limits. Yeah, it doesn't sound right. It makes it sound like every gay is retarded, when everyone knows you can be retarded and not gay. Must be the city's new initiative for diversity and inclusion.

They could be bookends, they look so much alike. That may have been the attraction.

Enlightened    

An "international star" who is so obscure TMZ has to label the two pics because no one has a single clue as to who these two girls, uh..., I mean guys are. Seriously, TMZ, we know you are desperate for gay stories, so instead of focusing on nobodies from another country, why not spend your time outing black gay celebs. Those in rap and hip hop alone could keep you busy for YEARS and provide loads of entertainment for your readers. Why not start with Jayne Z and Kanyetta, the undercover love story of the century.
