Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland is accusing her ex boyfriend of 5 years, Matthew Prokop, of choking her. A temporary restraining order has been filed. She claims Prokop choked her, pushed her, and threatened her life, and that her TV mother has seen some of the abuse.
Court documents that were filed by Sarah Hyland allege that Matthew is a bad man. The documents state Matthew Prokop terrorized her verbally and physically during the last 4 years of their relationship. What took her so long to leave?
Prokop allegedly pinned Hyland against a car during an argument about her outfit in May. He then repeatedly called her a c**t while choking her. Hyland says, “His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear for my life.” She also suffered voice injuries and, a “very sore throat following this event.”
Hyland also invited her TV mom, Julie Bowen, for help on how to end the relationship peacefully. She purchased a plane ticket to send Matthew back to his home in Texas, but when he arrived at their house, he saw her TV Mom Julie and others and began to freak out. An insider says he “ran outside into the backyard and began screaming.”
Prokop also threw a lighter, and that’s when Julie told Sarah to get out of the house because she wasn’t safe. In the documents, Hyland says Prokop threatened to set one of her homes on fire and that she would never see her dog again.
After the break up, she says he “relentlessly bombarded me with vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voice mails including his own suicide threats.”
Prokop went to rehab August but was released Sept. 21st. The director of the facility contacted her and told her it would be best to get a restraining order due to his mental state and attitude against her. Well she definitely took that advice! Prokop must stay at least 100 yards away from Sarah and her dog at all times.
