Darius McCrary is sick and tired of being bashed by estranged gal pal Karrine “Supahead” Steffans for allegedly attacking her with such force that she “passed out.”
So the Family Matters star has brought out evidence galore—in the form of photos apparently showing that Karrine in fact attacked him.
Darius spoke with BlogTalkRadio exclusively about his domestic-abuse dispute with Steffans, and released images (below) of what he says is their altercation.
“I hope Karrine gets help. She might need to be committed,” Darius tells Dawn Olsen, host of BlogTalkRadio’s GlossLip Radio.
In August 2007, Karrine filed a report with the L.A.P.D. claiming McCrary “choked her ’til she passed out.” Though the case was dropped, the couple’s relationship remained stormy in the ensuing months.
On June 5, 2008, the Confessions of a Video Vixen author reportedly went looking for Darius after not seeing him for several days. When she found him in the garage below the L.A. recording studio where he was cutting a new album, he backed up over her in his car and ran over her foot, she claimed in a police report.
But that same day, an L.A. Superior Court judge issued a temporary restraining order against Steffans, in which Darius said he never hit her with his car. Rather, Karrine “jumped on the trunk of my car and then the roof of my car. She started beating my vehicle and windows,” as well as used “her fist” to try to and break through his windshield.
“Karrine really scared me that night. She went crazy—and caused substantial damage to my car,” Darius tells us.
Now, BlogTalkRadio has obtained images from a security camera that Darius says back up his story about the June 5 altercation. He also says the video will be entered as evidence in a Burbank Civil Court hearing today, at which he is expected to be issued a permanent restraining order against Karrine.
“Throughout this whole ordeal, she Karrine has been trying to drum up attention for herself by putting lies out there online,” says Darius. “While I have always gone through the proper legal channels, and treated Karrine with nothing but love, she has handled her business differently – by creating situations that do not reflect the truth. Her allegations have no merit at all.
“I’m breaking my silence now for the first time in order to clear my name and let people know that Karrine’s claims are completely false,” says the actor.
“I never beat up Karrine, but because of her allegations, I have lost a number of acting-job opportunities,” he adds.
“Mrs. Steffans has no comment pending the outcome of Mr. McCrary’s battery case with the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, stemming from this incdent. Nor does she have knowledge of any restraining orders or subsequent hears today or on any other date,” Karrine’s rep tells us.
