The Stepmom writer, who has two young sons with ex-husband Brian Grazer, alleges she invested in Anthony Jones' small business and allowed him to live in her guest house in April (12).
Jones subsequently moved out, and Levangie has now accused him of following her to work and calling her phone several times a day. She also claims Jones showed up at her home, and on one occasion trapped her on her own driveway.
Levangie, who stated she was so distressed by the "frightening and erratic behaviour" she hired a private security team to protect her family, has called on court officials to ban Jones from coming within 100 yards (91 metres) of her and her children, according to papers obtained by TMZ.com.
The website reports Jones has "no idea" about the restraining order request. A hearing is set for Wednesday (12Sep12).
