Sarah Hyland Receives Three-Year Restraining Order Against Ex Matt Prokop

Sarah Hyland just received a permanent restraining order against her ex-boyfriend Matt Prokop.

The 23-year-old Modern Family starlet filed for a temporary restraining order against her boyfriend of four years claiming that he choked her, pushed her, and threatened her life.

Today, a judge ordered that Matt must stay 100 yards from Sarah, her house, and her dog Barkley Bixby, not go anywhere near her job, not own any firearms, and not threaten her dog in any way. The permanent restraining order will remain in effect for three years, TMZ reports. If Matt violates any of these points, he could go to jail.

    I care. Good going Sarah. Be very careful and aware still.

    Good for her!

    Good for her! So many girls go back to their abusive boyfriends and think it’s normal to be treated that way – Rihanna as an example. It is NOT normal and it is NOT OK! Recognize that. Women deserve to be treated with respect and care, just like men do. And if a man can’t give you that, then he’s not worth a second of your thoughts!

    Hope she can recover from this and move on with her life – she’s a beautiful, young girl with a successful career and her whole life ahead of her. AND obviously she’s smart for putting a stop to this behavior. She’ll have a line of guys after her.

    Best wishes to her!
