WWE Superstar CM Punk has taken his mum to court in order to gain a restraining order against her, according to TMZ.
Punk was given a temporary restraining order back on June 10 - but he is now looking to extend that order for a number of years.
Punk has had a notoriously difficult childhood with these factors playing into his WWE story-lines. Punk was adopted by the parents of his best friend as a teenager and has been estranged from his parents ever since.
Punk, real name Phillip Brooks, claims that his mother has been constantly demanding money from him and threatens to kill herself if he doesn’t come through with money. Punk also claims that he has tried for years to break off his relationship with his mum due to demands for money.
Although Punk has a terrible relationship with his mother, he says that he tried to help her by giving her money in the total of more than £100,000.
On the issue, Punk stated: "I wish for the harassment to stop and am requesting the assistance of the court in this regards."
