Jeremy London Files Restraining Order Against Family

Despite what his family is saying, Jeremy London is sticking to his bizarre kidnapping story and has taken action to stop his relatives from talking to the media, filing a restraining order against them Wednesday.

"Jeremy filed these orders against his family for them to stop giving unauthorized interviews to the press," his attorney Catherine Lombardo told People. "What they've said is false, misleading and harmful to his personal reputation and career."

The former Party of Five star, 37, filed the orders in a Los Angeles court against his twin brother Jason, their mother Deborah Nielsen and Jason's girlfriend Sofia Karstens.

We can't blame Jeremy's relatives for doubting his recount of events, as the actor claimed he was kidnapped at gunpoint in London, then forced to smoke crack, after several men helped Jeremy and his estranged wife Melissa Cunningham fix a flat tire. But Jeremy is sticking to his story -- and wants his family to stop making their opinions on the situation public.

"We believe what the family is saying is harmful to the ongoing investigation," says Lombardo. "The police have already arrested and charged a suspect in the case."

Brandon Adams, 26, has pleaded not guilty for the alleged kidnapping, and the investigation is ongoing. Adams claims that he and Jeremy, who, admittedly, has a past with addiction, went on a consensual, drug-filled joyride.

Jason London commented on the restraining order, telling People, "A restraining order isn't going to make us stop worrying about Jeremy and only wanting the best for him," adding Jeremy has shut out his family for the past six months.
