Verne Troyer issued a restraining order

Verne Troyer

Verne Troyer has been banned from approaching his ex-girlfriend.

The 40-year-old actor has been served with a temporary restraining order after he reportedly bombarded model Yvette Monet with abusive texts and called her a “hooker” when she finished their relationship.

In court papers, Yvette, 25, said their relationship ended months ago, but Verne hadn’t stopped bombarding her with messages since and claimed she feared for her life after the 2ft 8in star told her she “better watch out” because he had friends with guns.

The actress said in her court declaration: “I have moved on, but he keeps emailing me, calling me and texting me awful messages.

“He will not stop. I’ve asked him more than 10 times to leave me alone…He said that he won’t stop because he doesn’t want me to see anyone else…I’m scared.”

“Verne’s friend Bart is carrying guns and will do anything he says and his friend Jose is a cop and has guns as well. I’m afraid for my life.”

Verne – who must stay more than 100 yards away from Yvette under the terms of the order, which was served early last month – is said to be “shocked” by the model’s allegations.

His attorney, Ed McPherson, told E! news: “I guess you can get a restraining order against anyone when you don’t give them notice. He’s shocked and appalled to learn about the false and frivolous accusations that have been made by Ms. Monet. It’s beyond comprehension that a restraining order can be obtained with no notice to Mr. Troyer and no opportunity to defend himself…We look forward to responding to these allegations in court.”

The order will last until December 2, when a court case must take place to decide if it will be extended.

Verne Troyer is getting his own reality show

Verne Troyer

Verne Troyer is to star in his own reality TV show.

The Austin Powers actor, 39, has already begun shooting the series, and is hoping to attract interest from networks.

Troyer tells Us Weekly, “It’s about being a dwarf in Hollywood.”

The actor will be hoping for a more successful venture into reality TV, after an embarrassing episode on VH1’s The Surreal Life in 2007, when he got drunk and urinated on the floor.

Ranae Shrider to Verne Troyer: ‘Thanks for the lasting gift’

Verne Troyer

Verne Troyer’s video sex partner is pissed, and now claims Mini Me’s m.o. is all about back taxes and a mysterious reference to a “lasting gift”.

Ranae Shrider’s legal mouthpiece, Keith Davidson, is raggin’ on Verne claiming he can’t pay his taxes “because he is paying his lawyer hundreds of thousands of dollars to file ridiculous lawsuits.” He cites, among other things, the suit against TMZ for running the sex tape story, which was dismissed.

Davidson calls Verne “a small-minded, vindictive, heartbroken, desperate and trivial celebrity,” adding, “Mr. Troyer would be better served retiring his Federal and state tax obligations rather than suing a girl who he dated for only three months before videotaping their diminutive sessions.” We’ve never heard a sex tape called a “diminutive session,” but whatever.

Oh yes, and there’s this. Shrider’s lawyer ends with the following shot: “Ms. Shrider would still like to thank Mr. Troyer for the ‘lasting’ gifts he has imparted her with.” So, what do you suppose he means by that?
