Care to explain, Michael Fassbender?
On Friday, the actor’s domestic abuse allegations have resurfaced after DailyMail.com published March 2010 Los Angeles court papers where ex-girlfriend Sunawin Andrews sought a protective order against the X-Men star.
According to the documents, the model details two incidents in 2009 where he allegedly got physical.
In November 2009, the now-40-year-old allegedly drunkenly dragged Andrews with a car because her ex-boyfriend said hello to them at dinner.
“Michael was driving my car dangerously fast and screaming at me. I begged him to stop the car in fear of an accident or for my children who were home asleep… As we got closer to my house I put my car in stop. Got out walked around the car to pull key from ignition. Michael drove of[f] dragging me along from the car… He stopped after he realized I could not walk and got out of car. He picked me up and put me in car as my friends pulled up behind us. They stayed the night to help calm things.”
The mother says the incident left her with vaginal bleeding, a twisted left ankle, blown out left knee cap, bursted ovarian cyst, and a hospital bill totaling $24K.
In July 2009, Fassbender allegedly threw Andrews “over a chair” after she woke him up. The alleged incident — which she says left her with a broken nose — happened after the thespian received an award, presumably at a film and music festival in Ischia, Italy.
Andrews filed for a protective order against Fassbender on March 12, 2010, asking that he stay at least 100 yards away from her and her family.
She reveals in the petition:
“I am still recovering from my injuries and am afraid for my safety.”
Although the court granted Andrews a temporary protective order, she ultimately withdrew her request on April 6, 2010, one day before a scheduled hearing.
She currently lives in Los Angeles and works with an animal protection organization.
