RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, AUDIOSLAVE and PROPHETS OF RAGE bassist Tim Commerford was granted a restraining order against his estranged wife and has accused her of “viciously assaulting” him. This happened just one day after she filed for divorce from him, The Blast reports.
Commerford accuses Aleece Commerford of showing up “uninvited and unannounced” to a home he was staying at, and attacking the bassist with her iPhone and “fists,” causing severe injuries to his face and body.
Tim provided bloody photos of the injuries as evidence in the court filing. You can see one of the pictures at The Blast.
The order granted Friday in a Los Angeles court says Aleece must 100 yards away from Tim and any venue where his band is booked to play or rehearse. She is also ordered not to disparage him in front of their children, and not interfere with visitation to the children.
Aleece filed documents on November 28 to end the couple’s 17-year marriage. They couple got married in 2001 and have two sons together, Xavier and Quentin. She also requested sole physical custody of the couple’s two sons.
