"Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland just got a temporary restraining order against her ex-BF -- claiming the guy choked her, pushed her and threatened her life ... and her TV mom witnessed some of the abuse.
TMZ has obtained court docs filed by Hyland -- who plays Haley Dunphy -- in which she claims her ex Matthew Prokop terrorized her both verbally and physically during the last 4 years of their relationship.
According to the docs, Prokop -- an actor who once appeared on "Modern Family" -- pinned Hyland against a car during an argument about her outfit back in May and unleashed hell ... calling her "c**t, c**t, c**t" and choking her.
Hyland says in the docs, "His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear for my life."
Sarah says she suffered injuries to her voice -- and had a "very sore throat following this event."
In the docs, Hyland says she knew she was in an abusive relationship -- and asked her TV mom Julie Bowen to come to her house to help "peacefully end the relationship."
Hyland says she had purchased a plane ticket to send Matthew back to his home in Texas -- but when Matthew arrived to the home and saw Julie (along with others), he freaked out ... "ran outside into the backyard and began screaming."
Hyland says Prokop threw a lighter at her -- and that's when Julie stepped in and told Sarah to get out of the house because she wasn't safe around Prokop.
In the docs, Hyland says Prokop also threatened to set one of her homes on fire -- and threatened that she would never see her dog again.
After Hyland broke up with Prokop, she claims he "relentlessly bombarded me with vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voice mails including his own suicide threats."
Hyland says Prokop entered a rehab facility in August -- but he got out on Sept. 21st ... and claims the director of the facility contacted her and told her it would be in her best interest to get a restraining order against him due to his mental state and attitude against her.
Hyland took his advice -- and an L.A. judge granted a temporary restraining order ... requiring Prokop to stay at least 100 yards away from Sarah and her dog at all times.
We reached out to Prokop and his people for comment -- so far no word back.

Mama June Goes Big Ole House Hunting
9/23/2014 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mama June is getting ready for a major upgrade ... now that she's 86'd Sugar Bear -- she's also looking to move into a new pad and took the fam house hunting Tuesday.
Most of the 'Honey Boo Boo' crew -- June, Alana, Pumpkin and Uncle Poodle -- checked out 4 houses in Hampton, GA ... about an hour away from where they live now.
As TMZ first reported, Mama June kicked Sugar Bear to the curb because she swears she caught him online dating. We're told he hasn't slept at the family home since the breakiup ... though he still comes by to shoot for the show.
Here's the thing ... it looks like Suge's missing out big time, because June's looking at houses that are definitely a step (or three) up from the family's current digs.
Reality TV pays.

The woman claiming to have 3 boobs is A FRAUD ... A FAKE ... and ironically what exposed her lie is a crime someone committed against her.
Jasmine Tridevil has been making the rounds, claiming she got plastic surgery to net her an additional boob.
But we got a document from the Tampa International Airport Police Dept. describing a baggage theft. According to the doc ... someone stole a bunch of luggage off an American Airlines conveyor belt, including a black nylon roller bag.
Cops caught the thieves after IDing them with surveillance video. The black bag belonged to Tridevil, but before she got it back it was inventoried by police as part of the case against the crooks.
Guess what was inside the bag? "A 3 breast prosthesis."
BTW ... she told cops the prosthesis was valued at $5K.
The boobs are perfect, but she's a little crooked.
Orioles Mascot Nut-Puncher
'It Was On My Bucket List'
9/23/2014 12:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The dude who punched the Baltimore Orioles mascot in the nuts claimed he only did it because "that was on my bucket list" ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports.
The ball-buster was arrested at Camden Yard back in April '13 -- and when cops spoke with dude in the bird suit, he told police he was simply DUPED by the "fan" who told him he just wanted an innocent pic.
That's when, according to the report, 33-year-old Christopher John Collins reached down with a closed right fist and struck ... saying over and over again, "That was on my bucket list"
The bird struck back -- and swept the guys leg. He was ultimately hauled to a nearby jail where he was booked.
Hot Sisters Sue
You Made Us Whore Faces
9/23/2014 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Two sisters are kind of upset ... because when you Google "snapchat sluts" their pictures come up, and that's only one reason they've just sued the founder.
Sarah and Elizabeth Turner claim in 2011 they were approached by Evan Spiegel, who at the time was a Stanford student and developing an iPhone App called "Picaboo."
The girls say Evan convinced them to let him shoot pictures of them playing on the beach. They say it was a free favor ... just to promote Picaboo.
They claim one of the photos was edited to make it look like Elizabeth was pulling off Sarah's bathing suit top ... and that they were nude on the beach.
Fast forward to 2014. Picaboo morphed into Snapchat -- which the sisters claim is now valued at $10 BILLION. That playful bikini pic effectively became the face of the App.
The girls are particularly pissed because Snapchat is now the premiere sexting App and they say they've been tainted by its tawdry reputation.
The women want a portion of the profits ... big money.

Billy Joel Concert
Booze, Blood and Broken Bones
9/23/2014 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
For one concertgoer, when Billy Joel sang "I love you just the way you are" ... the way he was ... was bloody.
Ari Ganales claims in a new lawsuit ... he and his wife were enjoying the show at Madison Square Garden when some wasted rowdies began fighting ... again, this is a Billy Joel concert.
Ganales says one of the hooligans pulled him over a seat and thrashed him mercilessly -- breaking his arm, nose, ribs and causing other severe injuries.

Kris/Bruce Jenner Divorce
$60 Million Split
9/23/2014 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kris and Bruce Jenner's divorce settlement was probably less than you think, because multiple sources tell us ... the pot they divided was approximately $60 million.
We're told dividing the assets was "easy and amicable" ... almost all of their earnings were put in a joint account, and that includes their TV profits, Bruce's speaking engagements and their ownership in various businesses.
TMZ broke the story ... lawyers were not involved in the property settlement ... it was all done with the help of their business managers. Each filed legal docs in pro per -- meaning without lawyers.
Part of the settlement ... Kris gets the Hidden Hills estate. Bruce gets to keep his Sherwood Country Club membership.
There's no spousal support. The property gets divided, and that's that.
After Club Performance
9/23/2014 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Someone got stabbed after a Chris Brown performance Monday night ... and law enforcement tells us it's yet another case of trouble following Brown and his entourage ... something cops are quietly trying to stop.
Right after Brown finished his set at a YMCMB Drake/Lil Wayne after-party at Supperclub in Hollywood ... several people who were leaving got into a fight and someone got stabbed.
The victim was taken to a hospital and he's expected to be okay.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... they didn't make any arrests because no one would ante up any info ... which leads to the bigger issue. Our cop sources say they believe this is all about Brown's entourage. Wherever they go ... someone ends up bleeding.
We're told the LAPD has privately met with club owners, trying to pressure them into blacklisting Chris and his crew, but the clubs make too much money off them so they're welcome with open arms.
As one law enforcement source put it, "When Brown and his people show, we know what's going to happen. It's a headache for us."
Brown -- who does not keep his association with the Bloods a secret -- has not been accused of instigating the violence, but cops say they know it all emanates from the singer and his entourage.
You'll recall 3 people were shot -- including Suge Knight -- during a Chris Brown performance at 1OAK last month.

Steve-O is putting his nuts on the line -- boldly challenging the hackers behind the nude celebrity leak to expose new photos of his junk.
Steve-O tells us he has lots of uncensored pics of himself showing off his junk -- trust us, some are more graphic than these -- and he's storing them on iCloud. He just tweeted a challenge to the hackers to come and get his stash ... if they're good enough.
As we first told you ... a lot of male celebs are taking steps to protect their photos because they're worried the hackers will start targeting dude nudes soon.
As usual, Steve-O -- and his frank and beans -- are going against the grain.
