Countess Vaughn, most known for her roles on The Parkers, Moesha and TV One’s Hollywood Divas, has been granted an order of protection from a Los Angeles judge after the actress claims her longtime boyfriend David Benjamin Richard Whitten threw bleach in her face this summer.

According to TMZ, Countess said, “her boyfriend has felt insecure anytime she moves up in her career, and she’s endured a decade of physical, verbal and emotional abuse from him — including alleged slapping, beating, strangulation and sexual assault.”

The 40-year-old mother of two, one whom she shares with Whitten, also alleges he threatened to kill her and release explicit videos.

He has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from her and her children. Their next hearing is scheduled for next month.
