Grease Star Wants Protection from Ex
Jeff Conaway wants to get away from his ex faster than greased lightning, so he took out a restraining order on her. Radaronline.com caught up with the former Kenickie outside a Van Nuys, Calif., court, where Conaway took out a restraining order on Vikki Lizzi, his fiancée of 7 years. The 60-year-old Celebrity Rehab alumnus alleges that she tried to stage a drug bust in which she injected Conaway, a (supposedly) former alcohol, cocaine and painkiller addict, with painkillers and planted cocaine around him. "I think what happened is that she called up and said, 'You can find him passed out with cocaine all over the room. If you want to go bust a star, then here's your chance.' That's what I think happened," the walker-bound and very frail Conaway told Radar. Conaway, who suffered a broken hip, brain hemorrhage and fractured neck in a fall last January, alleges that Lizzi stole money from him and forged his checks as well. LIzzi took out her own restraining order on her ex, alleging that Conaway threatened her. "The reason I got the restraining order is because he came at me with a hammer and scared the living daylights out of me," she said, adding, "Right now, I don't feel safe, I'm scared at night." Dr. Drew Pinsky expressed concern after Conaway's January 2010 accident that his need for painkillers would kick him back off the wagon. Depending on whose tale you believe, his premonition may have come true.
