Constantine Maroulis I've Been Framed By Baby Mama Wins Restraining Order

Constantine Maroulis convinced a judge his baby mama is a picture throwing wrecking ball who is anything but a domestic violence victim, and the judge agreed ... at least temporarily. 

Constantine got a restraining order against Angel Reed, just hours after HE was arrested for allegedly kicking her in the groin. He claims that she has a history of abusing him.

The "American Idol" alum made a beeline for court after getting released, armed with paperwork alleging a pattern of abuse by Angel. He says she's thrown a picture frame at him, destroyed numerous personal items and went on a campaign of harassment.

The restraining order is tricky, since they share a 4-year-old daughter and live in the same house. The judge ordered Angel to stay clear of the house. The judge did not prohibit her from having contact with their kid.
