The honeymoon phase appears to be over for this couple.

Danielle Staub has filed for a temporary restraining order against her husband Marty Caffrey more than three months after their wedding.

In court documents obtained by E! News, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star "believes that [her husband] is attempting to tarnish her reputation and career by making repeated false reports to the media."

Danielle also alleges that there has been prior history of "non-reported verbal abuse." Court papers also claim officers responded to their home over the weekend after Danielle suspected Marty took several "sentimental framed photographs." Docs state the portraits were later located in Marty's vehicle.

Englewood Police does not share any information on any domestic case. E! News has reached out to Marty and Danielle's team for comment.

"On Sunday, I had to call the police because of an outburst and threats she made after she came home from dinner looking disheveled, drunk or high," Marty alleged to Us Weekly. "She reached for an iron and a stapler as if to throw them at me. It turns out that after I went to sleep in another room, she went to the police department in Englewood, New Jersey and got a restraining order because I removed some pictures of her children from a location where all of my children pictures were removed earlier in the evening."

Stars Who Feuded With Real Housewives

"The claims being made are beyond preposterous and clearly a knee-jerk reaction to Danielle's filing," Staub's rep tells E! News in a statement. "I cannot imagine there is a single person gullible enough to believe any of this nonsense. If even ten percent of these claims were true, any normal person would have already filed for divorce or, better yet, not married the person in the first place. This is laughable."

The temporary restraining order was granted until the couple's next court date, which is scheduled for August 20.

Today's court development comes after E! News learned that the couple was experiencing some hurdles in their marriage. In fact, Marty was nowhere to be found when the Bravo star celebrated her recent birthday.

"Danielle is having some difficulties with her marriage right now and is hoping everything will work out," the reality star's rep previously said in a statement to E! News.

Another source added, "They are having problems and it's all very up on the air right now."

Back in May, the couple said "I Do" in a private wedding ceremony on the Bahamas' North Bimini Island at the Luna Beach Club. Danielle's co-stars including Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs and Teresa Giudice were able to attend the ceremony that could be featured on the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey.

"I'm excited to connect with Marty as husband and wife," Danielle told People before her wedding day. "There's nothing more beautiful about that. We're both looking forward to that next chapter."
