CM Punk gets restraining order against mother


WWE superstar CM Punk has obtained a restraining order against his estranged mother — claiming she constantly hits him up for money and then threatens to kill herself if he doesn’t come through … TMZ has learned.

Punk — real name Phillip Brooks — claims in legal docs filed in Illinois that he’s tried to break off his relationship with his mother for more than a year “due to repeated financial demands and years of abusive, harassing and threatening behavior.”

In the document, Punk says he’s made an effort to help his mom — who he claims suffers from bipolar disorder — giving her more than $100,000. But Punk says her “abusive/threatening behavior” escalated when he cut her off.

That’s when Punk’s mom allegedly unleashed a torrent of nasty emails — telling the wrestler, “You don’t give a s**t about us. You just care about your money and money hungry/fame hungry friends. You would sell us for a nickel.”

Punk also says his mother threatened to release potentially embarrassing information about her son’s past. Punk suggests the information has to do with arrests when he was in high school.

In the docs, Punk says his mother has threatened to commit suicide on at least 4 occasions in 2012.

Punk says, “I wish for the harassment to stop and am requesting the assistance of the court in this regards.”

The judge in the case granted the temporary restraining order back on June 10 — but the wrestler is due back in court today where he will likely try to extend the protection order for several years.

    The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb. Not a lot of people know that’s where the saying comes from. Actually means exactly the opposite of what people think it means. Family can be awful.

    turrible situation to be in.

    His mother did the pepsi plung on his bank account.

    Incredibly sad really. I can still remember when they announced Punk had reconciled with his mother a couple of years back. Old habits die hard, I suppose. I know from experience that even people from your own family will use you, but your own parents… damn… that’s just awful.

    A comment coming from Adurka, who probably doesn’t even know who his real parents are.

    Why do people use stories such as this to engage their personal opinions in some futile attempt to feel relevant?

    The story is just plain sad, whichever viewpoint you have and I don’t see it as being relevant news.

    I just see marks and trolls having a field day and while my commenting on them is just more personal opinion, I hope some common sense wins over and this story is forgotten and left to the only people it affects; Punk and his family.

  12. Adurka Durk says:

    Now, now, skeeter. They ain’t hurtin’ nobody.

    From his Best in the World Documentary, Punk left his biological family to go live with his best friend and her family. He has called his best friend’s mom, His mom. They adopted him into their family and treat him as such. I feel bad for him and what he’s going through.

  14. rebel says:

    Sure Durk, he should have just beaten her up…

  15. Adurka Durk says:

    Or just deal with it, like a man.
