LAMBERTVILLE, N.J., Aug. 30 (UPI) -- A New Jersey judge issued restraining orders against comic Joe Piscopo and his wife Kimberly after the divorcing couple both alleged domestic abuse.
The New York Daily News reported that Hunterdon County Family Court Judge Roger Mahon granted temporary restraining orders against both Piscopo and his wife Monday, after both appeared in his court claiming the other was guilty of domestic abuse.
Since Kimberly first filed for divorce from the "Saturday Night Live" alum on July 10, the couple and their children continued to live together in their home but both allege that last weekend the other got abusive to the point they each worry for the children's safety.
The couple met when Kimberly acted as nanny to Piscopo's son from his first marriage, They married in 1997 and have had three children of their own.
The paper said that in addition to granting the couple restraining orders, Mahon also ordered that Kimberly's father must move out of the family's home. The 5-foot-5 model reportedly had asked him to move in to "protect" her from her bodybuilder husband.
