According to celebrity news and gossip site TMZ.com, 'Mini-Me' Verne Troyer's ex-girlfriend has been granted a temporary restraining order against the actor because she fears for her safety after he made a series of abusive and threatening phone calls to her.

In court documents, Yvette Monet, a model and part-time actress from Minnesota, reportedly stated that she used to date Verne, but they have been broken up for months.
