*Tammy Brawner, wife of “Family Matters” star Darius McCrary, has filed for divorce amid a nasty battle and wants the judge to keep him away from their infant daughter until he gets help for booze, drugs and his rage issues.
Brawner filed in L.A. citing irreconcilable differences, and made it clear that she has concerns about their 1-year-old daughter Zoey’s safety. TMZ obtained the court docs, and Tammy says she wants Darius to “attend alcohol/drug abuse and batterers’ intervention classes.”
Tammy’s seeking legal and physical custody of Zoey and spousal support. She also wants Darius’ visitation rights cut off until he provides proof he’s completed a treatment program.
Brawner’s divorce petition comes less than a month after she accused her husband of hitting her in the head with his forearm. She also said he once held their infant daughter over a boiling pot of water. The couple have restraining orders against each other, with each claiming to be a victim of spousal abuse.
McCrary denied the abuse allegations and claimed in his request for a restraining order that Brawner threatened him with a knife on one occasion and on another occasion, she attacked him with a flat-iron.
“The hot flat-iron burned my chest with a visible inch-and-a-half, 2nd or 3rd degree red burn mark on the right said,” he said in his hand-written filing requesting a stay-away order.
“She has been verbally abusive and degrading to me as a man. She has told me no one would believe me and has told me this would be the outcome if I did not comply,” he wrote.
In her new divorce filing, Brawner listed McCrary’s apartment building as her address, but a judge ordered her to stay away from McCrary’s apartment in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Canoga Park.
