Camille Grammer Granted Restraining Order Against Boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos
Camille Grammer filed and was granted a restraining order against Dimitri Charalambopoulos, her boyfriend of two years.
Grammer alleges that Charalambopoulos attacked her in a hotel room in Houston on Oct. 16, which was merely days after The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star underwent surgery for endometrial cancer. During the altercation, Charalambopoulos allegedly slammed Grammer's head into a headboard repeatedly, and at one point, cut off her airways.
The confrontation between the couple began at 1:30 in the morning after Grammer discovered texts and calls from another woman on Charalambopoulos' phone, according to court documents obtained by People.
"He grabbed me by the hair, twisted it around his hand, and repeatedly pulled my head into the bed and its headboard," Grammer said. "[He] succeeded in pulling out swaths of my hair and gave me a large, painful contusion on the side of my head. All the while, I was screaming for help."
Grammer went on to claim that Charalambopoulos simultaneously covered her mouth and pinched her nose to both quiet her screams and keep her from breathing. “I began to believe he would kill me," the TV personality said, adding that he kneeled on her stomach “mere inches” from the spot of her surgery. Pictures of the aftermath of the assault, which reportedly lasted about 50 minutes, included shots of Grammer’s bruised face and wrists, as well as hair pulled from her scalp.
On Tuesday, the Superior Court judge granted Grammer her restraining order, which will prevent Charalambopoulos from contacting or getting within 100 yards of her or her two children from her marriage to Frasier and Cheers star Kelsey Grammer – Mason, 12, and Jude, 9.
