WWE Star CM Punk

Hits Mom with Restraining Order

'Threats to Commit Suicide'

WWE superstar CM Punk has obtained a restraining order against his estranged mother -- claiming she constantly hits him up for money and then threatens to kill herself if he doesn't come through ... TMZ has learned.

Punk -- real name Phillip Brooks -- claims in legal docs filed in Illinois that he's tried to break off his relationship with his mother for more than a year "due to repeated financial demands and years of abusive, harassing and threatening behavior."

In the document, Punk says he's made an effort to help his mom -- who he claims suffers from bipolar disorder -- giving her more than $100,000. But Punk says her "abusive/threatening behavior" escalated when he cut her off.

That's when Punk's mom allegedly unleashed a torrent of nasty emails -- telling the wrestler, "You don't give a s**t about us. You just care about your money and money hungry/fame hungry friends. You would sell us for a nickel."

Punk also says his mother threatened to release potentially embarrassing information about her son's past. Punk suggests the information has to do with arrests when he was in high school.

In the docs, Punk says his mother has threatened to commit suicide on at least 4 occasions in 2012.

Punk says, "I wish for the harassment to stop and am requesting the assistance of the court in this regards."

The judge in the case granted the temporary restraining order back on June 10 -- but the wrestler is due back in court today where he will likely try to extend the protection order for several years.

Sad story. Sometimes you gotta cut them loose lest they take you with them. Very unfortunate.

The stress he must be going through, knowing that his own parent is financially, and emotionally blackmailing him.

Really sad, Mothers are not supposed to be like that. My mom is golden to me and my family. I wish folks had a mom like mine. But there are moms out there that give the position crap.
Power to you, CM

It's very rare that I say this, but I think this is an awfully personal story that TMZ should just leave alone.

You can pick your friends but not choose your family. Emotional blackmail is very consuming and it's good he has drawn a line under the matter realising that he cannot solve it. It sounds like he had issues when he was younger but that is understandable when dealing with a mother who wasn't stable. Fair play to the guy for achieving something amazing by getting to the top of his profession and being an inspiration to many children who may also have an awkward upbringing.

Sometimes your family isn't worth the time especially when if they're mental. No offense

I HAVE BI=POLAR AND HAVE DEALT WITH IT OVER 40 YEARS, YOUR MOTHER NEEDS A GOOD PHYCOLOGIST AND UNDERSTANDING FROM HER FAMILY. IT IS A VERY DISABILITY DISEASE, SHE MAY NOT BE ON THE RIGHT MEDS THATS UP TO HER DR, WHATEVER DON'T GIVE UP ON HER, YOU'LL ONLY EVER HAVE ONE MOM. RESEACH IT ON YOUR COMPUTER, TALK TO A PHYCOLOGIST, I HAD ONE THAT HAD ME ON THE WRONG MEDS THAT MADE ME VERY SUCIDIAL. I GOT RID OF HIM WHEN HE WOULDN'T LISTEN TO ME.
YES I HAVE OD'ED SEVERAL TIMES AND IT HAS BEEN VERY HARD ON MY 3 CHILDREN. . I LOVE MY PHYCOLOGIST I HAVE BEEN SEEING ALMOST 6 YEARS. GET HER SOME HELP BEFORE ITS TO LATE.

honestly, I feel sad for CM Punk. In his childhood, his never gave him much and rarely paid attention to him and now that he's doing something for himself, his "family" wants a piece of the fortune he earned
