IOAN Gruffudd has filed a restraining order against his estranged wife Alice Evans, fearing she would make false claims about him.
According to court documents, the Welsh actor wants his ex-girlfriend to be 100 yards away from him and his new girlfriend Bianca Wallace.
Fantastic Four Star Avon is also asking the court to stop 53-year-old Alice from contacting the couple.
Avon filed for divorce from Alice in May 2021, after 13 years of marriage, and stated in a statement that she had told him months earlier that she was unhappy with their relationship.
Ellis, 48, claims – which he shares with his 12-year-old daughter Ella and eight-year-old Elsie – that he threatened to “destroy me and my career.”
In his 113-page petition for an “Order to Stop Domestic Violence”, he said: “Alice told me several times that she would do to me what Amber Heard did to Johnny Depp.
Alice threatened to tell people that I had abused her and our daughters; she threatened to call the police if I did not comply.
“She threatened to tell people that I was addicted to drugs and put me in jail. She threatened to write a fake diary depicting a victim who had been abused.” , And this diary should be published; and he threatened to destroy my mother.

“Alice told me she would win, and everyone would believe me.”
According to documents, Ioan claims that Alice had already made “false and harassing” posts about him on social media, as well as “hundreds” of abusive posts and emails.
The actor – who starred in the ITV series Liar – has also claimed that his ex has turned on his new wife Bianca.
“Alice has made harassing, threatening and false social media posts about Bianca, and she has leaked private information about Bianca’s medical condition,” he said.
“It was very disturbing and stressful for me to continue to receive such hostile and offensive text messages from Alice.
“On July 22, 2021, I blocked Alice’s phone number on my phone.”
The documents contained dozens of posts, one of which was allegedly sent by Alice: “Dude, the movie with your Bianca is the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever seen in Deadline.”
“You specifically asked this loving family to wait for you while you were working abroad. We did that.
“Then you met the most psychopathic sockbus ever for man, and fell for it.”
Ioan filed a restraining order in Los Angeles, California yesterday.
Ellis has vehemently denied all of Ioan’s claims in the restraining order application.
He said: “I am convinced that the petitioner is filing this petition only as a ploy to benefit me in our divorce proceedings.
“Since the petitioner has not seen our children for more than 8 months, I am sure he is trying to set a record that I am a terrible mother.”
This came to light when Ellis accused Avon of cheating on his three-year relationship with actress Bianca.
After Ioan shared a photo of them together on Instagram last year, Ellis tweeted: And he doesn’t want any more sex with me and he just wants to be on the overseas seat … we’ve had a relationship behind all our backs for three years.
