Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer has obtained a restraining order against her boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos after claiming that he abused her in a Houston hotel room where she was recovering from cancer surgery.

In documents obtained by E! News, Camille explains that on Oct. 16 around 1:40 a.m. a woman began texting and calling Dimitri.

An argument then stemmed from the frantic woman's phone calls between Camille and her Greek boyfriend.

But the couple's fight escalated rather quickly and became physical. Camille explained in the document that she tried to call someone for help, but her phone was smashed by Dimitri.

In the report, she claims that he grabbed her by her hair, smashed her face and pulled out clumps of hair during the physical altercation.

Her account of the incident said: "He wrestled me on the hotel bed, repeatedly slamming my head and face into the furniture, and eventually he succeeded in immobilizing me…I began to scream, calling for help."

Camille's statement explains that Dimitri then "squeezed my nose between his finger and pushed upward forcefully, covering my mouth in an attempt to silence me to prevent me from breathing."

Dimitri "succeeded in silence me through threats of additional force," she added.

"He told me I was going to hell, and then, to make his escape, he said he would ‘knock me out' if I moved from the bed while he left the hotel."

The incident lasted for approximately 40 minutes to an hour. Camille says that she feared for her life and begged him to stop beating her.

Approximately three minutes after Dimitri left the hotel room, Camille says that she "hobbled down approximately four flights of stairs to the hotel lobby, holding my stomach in pain, and begged for help from a hotel employee."

Camille claims that she was left extremely injured following the abuse, with major bruises all over her arms and face and pain "inches from the area that had been the object of my invasive surgery only a few days" prior to the incident.

She also claims that he pulled out chunks of hair and has been experiencing "ongoing emotional stress and recurring fear."

A judge has granted a temporary restraining order against Dimitri—ordering him to stay 100 yards away from the 45-year-old and her two children.

On Monday, Camille took to Twitter to share that shocking news was about to come forward, but remained fairly vague about the details.

"Info will come out today that is jaw dropping. And women can't be silenced after being physically abused," she tweeted.

"Getting my strength back now that I am at home and wasn't able to deal with talking about it after my cancer surgery or what had happen."

Earlier this month, Camille underwent surgery after she was diagnosed with an early stage of endometrial cancer.

At the time, her rep told E! News that she "the surgery went well" and that she was "expected to make a complete recovery following a significant recuperation period."

Her rep released the following statement to E! News: 

"We believe the declaration and the court's decision speak for themselves and at this time neither Ms. Grammer, her attorney or her publicist will have further comment."
