Andrew Keegan just went from being known as "that guy from that thing" to "that guy who might have abused his girlfriend...who used to be in that thing."
And if that's the alternative, we're guessing he wouldn't have minded toiling in obscurity a little bit longer.
Keegan, best known for playing a cute dad in 7th Heaven and a cute jerk in 10 Things I Hate About You (he's rangey), this week found himself on the receiving end of an abuse allegation. His ex-girlfriend, model Kristi Parrales, requested a restraining order against him, claiming he terrorized her for more than a year.
And not just by subjecting her to his body of work.
Per the order request, filed in a Santa Monica court on Monday, Parrales claims she was physically attacked by Keegan twice, the most recent being on July 4, when the '90s heartthrob "threw me across the living room in front of witnesses," leaving her scarred and bruised on her back.
Parrales also claims that Keegan regularly patrols her work, calling her names and giving her "evil looks."
Who knew the stink eye warranted legal action?
Still, Parrales says the latest unwelcome stop came just last week (when Keegan, incidentally, claims he was in Las Vegas), when the actor allegedly slashed the tires of her car after a bouncer tossed him out.
She's asking that he be ordered to remain at least 100 yards away from her. So as long as she hangs out near casting directors' offices, she should be fine.
This type of behavior will not get Andrew Keegan into our Guys We Crave gallery. Check out which well-behaved studs did make the cut.
