Christina Ricci Obtains Domestic Violence Restraining Order Against Estranged Husband James Heerdegen

Christina Ricci has received a domestic violence restraining order against her estranged husband James Heerdegen.

Under the restraining order, James must stay 100 yards away from the 40-year-old actress and will not be allowed to visit with their 6-year-old son Freddie, People reports. He must also stay away from the family’s dog.

filed for the restraining order on Tuesday (January 19), alleging that she was physically abused by James. In the filing, Christina says she was subjected to “severe physical and emotional abuse” by James with “many of these acts of abuse” taking place in front of their son.

Christina claims the abuse started in 2013 when she first found out she was pregnant. She alleges that James has threatened to “kill” her on multiple occasions.

She also alleges that he “brutally attacked” her on December 19, 2019. Months later when the quarantine began, Christina says she found herself “stuck in the house with a man who had physically and emotionally abused me, and knew that I wanted to end the marriage.”

Throughout the pandemic, Christina claims James allegedly “focused solely on punishing and terrorizing me 24 hours a day,” adding, “I was afraid to sleep at night.”

Back on June 2, Christina alleges that James “chased me through and out of the house” while she was trying to call 911.

“He grabbed my wrists and hands, dragged me, and slammed my body into the fire pit we have in the yard,” Christina wrote in her filing. “I suffered cuts, bruising, and soreness of my hip, which still causes me pain today.”

Several weeks later, Christina claims James chased her around the house again “all morning, screaming at me, spitting on me, throwing coffee at me, and throwing a chair at me” all while in the presence of their son Freddie.

At that time, Christina was granted an emergency protective order against James.

Also in her filing, Christina alleges that she fears for her son’s safety as James allegedly “continues to threaten to abduct” Freddie.

In a statement to TMZ, James‘ attorney says he “unequivocally denies all allegations of abuse made by Ms. Ricci as having occurred in 2020.”

Christina and James first married in 2013. She filed for divorce back in July 2020.

Christina Ricci Files for Divorce From James Heerdegen

Christina Ricci has officially filed for divorce from her husband James Heerdegen just one week after being granted a protection order against him.

The 40-year-old actress – well known for some hit movies from her youth like Casper and The Addams Family – filed the papers on Thursday (July 2) at the L.A. County Superior Court.

They met in 2011 on the set of her short-lived show Pan Am and got married in 2013. They have a five-year-old son Freddie. In the documents, Christina cited irreconcilable differences and is asking for sole legal and physical custody of their child.

There is apparently no pre-nuptial agreement between the pair, TMZ reports.

Last week, Christina was given an order of protection against James, prohibiting any contact between them following a domestic dispute.

Devon Sawa Gives Christina Ricci Credit For Launching His Career

Devon Sawa is giving a lot of thanks to Christina Ricci for helping to launch his career in show business.

During a live tweet event to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Casper, in which he played the ghost come to live, Devon says it was Christina who recommended him for the role in the first place.

“Christina Ricci is a HUGE talent and played a big part in me getting the role and then went on to recommend me for Now And Then. I owe her the world. #casper,” he shared on Twitter.

Devon also gave a big shoutout to Malachi Pearson, who voiced the ghostly Casper for much of the movie.

“I was in Casper for 30 secs. Malachi Pearson did the hard work. When they decided last minute to bring Casper to life he was too young,” he added. “So I landed the role. And I’m very fortunate @BSilberling chose me cause I’d be lying if I said it didn’t start a 30 year job that I love.”

Director Brad Silberling replied to Devon’s tweets about his role, and added that Christina really gave him no choice in casting him. Check out what he wrote below!

Casper isn’t available to stream on Netflix or Hulu, but you can rent from Prime Video, Vudu and other streaming platforms now.
