Sarah Hyland is taking serious steps to protect herself from ex-boyfriend Matt Prokop.

According to TMZ, Sarah just got a temporary restraining order against her ex. In the documents, Sarah claims that Matt choked and pushed her, in addition Sarah also claims he threatened her life! Wow! TMZ is also saying that Sarah claims Matt, “terrorized her both verbally and physically during the last 4 years of their relationship.”

The site says that the documents also detail an event back in May where Matt and Sarah got in argument over her outfit. The argument escalated to Matt choking Sarah and calling her a “c**t” multiple times. Sarah reveals in the documents, “His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear of my life.”

Sarah and Matt were in a relationship for about five years before Sarah decided to end things last month. That’s when she got her Modern Family mom, Julie Bowen, to come over to help with the breakup. Things didn’t go over very well when Matt got to the house and saw that other people were there. He allegedly, “ran outside into the backyard and began screaming.” Julie had to step in when Matt threw a lighter at Sarah! Awful.

When the relationship ended, the abuse didn’t stop. Sarah claims that Matt “bombarded” her with “vile” texts and voicemails. In addition, TMZ says that Sarah claims Matt, “threatened to set one of her homes on fire and threatened that she would never see her dog (Barkley) again.” Matt reportedly entered rehab in August, but just got out on Sept. 21. Sarah got the restraining order at the advice of the director of Matt’s rehab facility.

Matt is now ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Sarah and her dog Barkley at all times.
