Ron Carlson and Selma Blair Decide to End Their Mutual Restraining Orders
Months after getting the orders earlier this year, Selma Blair and her ex-boyfriend Ronald Carlson have asked to have their restraining orders against one another dismissed.
In “stipulation” with Blair, Carlson asked the Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday for a “order granting dismissal of request for restraining order.” The court has decided to grant the request “upon perusal of the moving papers,” according to the filing.
The Times' request for response was not immediately answered by Blair's representatives.
Earlier, after he allegedly attacked her in her house, Selma Blair was given a restraining order against ex-husband Ronald Carlson.
According to her February 25 restraining order application, obtained on March 9, Blair asked Carlson to keep at least 100 yards away from her and her 10-year-old son, Arthur Saint Blair Bleick, after Carlson reportedly assaulted her on February 22 when he was dropping off a TV set. According to the report, Carlson was detained at his house the same afternoon as the alleged assault and charged with felony domestic violence.
The “Legally Blonde” actor claimed that when she was reclining on the couch, her ex-boyfriend sprung on her, choked her, shook and gripped her by both arms, threw her head to the floor, smacked her in the face, causing her nose to bleed. I will f— murder you, among other things, Carlson allegedly stated.
Carlson was detained for the night after being arrested on February 22 before securing $50,000 bail.
Carlson alleged that the actor became frustrated and upset several weeks later when he refused to move closer to her on the couch. Additionally, Blair is accused of calling Carlson's daughter a “f— loser.” Blair allegedly hit and scratched Carlson during the attack, according to Carlson.
Nearly four years after Blair stated that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in August 2018, the alleged altercation took place.
Just one day after Blair made an unexpected appearance at the 74th Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Monday, the restraining order was dismissed. She was greeted by a standing ovation from her Hollywood peers before presenting HBO's “Succession” with one of the night's biggest awards, the Emmy for drama series.
