Transformers Actress Rachel Taylor Gets Restraining Order Against Abusive X Factor Boyfriend!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm FlickersLove LineSad Sad


So awful. We're just glad she removed herself from the situation!

Rachel Taylor, who appeared in the first Transformers flick, has taken out a court order against her boyfriend Matthew Newton after he physically abused her on various occasions!

According to the legal documents, Taylor fears "for her personal safety, well being and security following events both in Australia and while on a recent holiday in Rome, Italy. This action follows a series of gravely serious incidents, including and not limited to two unprovoked violent assaults, which (she claims) occurred on the 13th and 14th August, 2010, while Ms Taylor was in Rome."

Newton, who was reportedly set to host the Australian version of The X Factor, has instead chosen to go to rehab for the second time this year.

Taylor has also released a statement:

"After much consideration and struggle I have made this personal decision to send a clear public message that violence, threats, abuse and intimidation are not acceptable and should be dealt with by the full capacity of the law."

What a brave woman!

We're sure this entire ordeal isn't easy, and we commend her for taking a stand and refusing to let a clearly troubled and toxic relationship run her life!

Keep your chin up, bb! You're doing the right thing!

We're thinking of you!

    well, the 13th was a friday……….

    I think you can safely say 'former' boyfriend Perez. Or 'now former boyfriend'. Because I hope she isn't considering going back to him. I know, he will blame the alcohol, but, the drinking is only bringing things to the front. He needs more than rehab.

    considering his past abuse record why even be with him or not leave after the first time? i know its hard to do but the best thing to do.

    Sadly… this isn't the first time he has done this. He also abused another Australian actress Brooke Satchwell and she also took him to court for the abuse. He has a history of abusing women along with his substance abuse.

    Actually he WAS convicted of assault/domestic violence on another girlfriend a few years ago, an aussie actor called Brooke Satchwell. However he later had the conviction overturned on the basis of his 'mental problems'.

    The guy is a prize asshole and the only reason he is still in the public eye and is getting jobs is because he is moonfaces son. He is a serial offender of domestic violence and it is about time the australian entertainment industry wises up and takes a stand against him and stops hiring him. Channel 7 hired him for x factor practically the day he got out of rehab. Not a good face for a supposed family show.

    i was worried when rach got with mathew.
    it's the old "dont leave me"= i beat the crap out of you. matthew needs to be told that the only other people that do that are serial killers-and face that fact.
    it IS that bad beating a spouse. it is not another way of saying i love you.
    matthew newtons coke/meth/ grog problem cant disguise his self-loathing.
    i only wish bert would step up and make him see sense-mathew gonna go to jail the way he is going.
    mathew is actually a talented actor and singer -the aussie tv industry changed, it didn't have the same opportunities that his father got quite easily that should have been for the gen x star.
    this may have been what he needed when he was younger.
    it is a shame but he has proved himself nonetheless- he should have had more acknowledgement for his role on underbelly especially.
    it's still not good enough.
    i just dont think that anyone would expect him to be so violent and needy.
    the drugs are clearly feeding insecurity. it's not making him sorry.
    he is not saving face by refusing to change.beat yourself up instead mathew.

    Oh i LOVE her! She is so beautiful and funny, a great actress! Im not surprised by this, as everyone in Australia knows of his previous behaviors with Brooke! I am sooooo glad Rachael has made a stand, and sent a message across to the media. She is amazing, and deserves better than that fucktard!

    Ah yeah, he was charged for bashing a previous girlfriend no so long ago - it was all very public. As a female I wouldn't go near a guy like that - and believe me he's nothing special.

    how sad. i was just reading a article in a magazine about how happy they were. i was always worried about her being with him after the last relationship he had ended in abuse to and Rachel is so sweet and gorgeous. glad she ended it with him!!

    I would have given about "anything" to have had the chance Megan Fox had. I am pretty, action driven and have sexy tats….I would also NEVER get to big for my pants so to speak. Producers always right! You may not agree but that is what they do and you act that is what you do. Basically - do as your told. Not that hard. Now that a certain "so-called action" star thinks she is so big she is telling producers the way things should be done or she wont do it. I'd tell her to hit the f&&*ing door there are many other woman that would kill for that chance. Some start thinking they are indispensable they are wrong. There is always somebody more pretty, def stronger, and not have a shitty attitude thinking they are pot of roses. I would be thankfull for everything and EVERY opportunity. I dont even know who Rachel Taylor was in 1st one? I am glad she is safe though. I am glad she left and stood up for herself. That is great and man she is really pretty!!!!!
