Former 'Family Matters' star Darius McCrary accused of beating ex-wife Karrine Steffans




Darius McCrary, the 34-year-old former star of Family Matters, has been ordered by a court to stay 100 yards away from ex-wife Karrine Steffans after he allegedly beat her with a belt in front of her 12-year-old son. We expected so much more out of Eddie Winslow.

TMZ says McCrary is accused by the 32-year-old former Video Vixen of choking her and beating her with a belt in February, then choking her and shoving her into a car at a hotel in L.A. in November in front of several witnesses. The couple were married in April 2009, but filed for divorce in March 2010.

Karrine is asking the judge to make the restraining order permanent, and will appear in court over the incident next week. McCrary currently stars on The Young and the Restless, which is news to us. We only pay attention to soap opera news when it involves James Franco.
