Stay The Hell Away From Sarah Hyland’s Ex
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has filed a restraining order against her allegedly abusive ex-boyfriend Matt Prokop after enlisting the help of Julie Bowen to get out of the relationship. So if you only read this top part, never, ever date this guy. TMZ reports:
According to the docs, Prokop — an actor who once appeared on “Modern Family” — pinned Hyland against a car during an argument about her outfit back in May and unleashed hell … calling her “c**t, c**t, c**t” and choking her.
Hyland says in the docs, “His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear for my life.”
Things went even more south when Sarah staged an intervention to get him to move out:
Hyland says she had purchased a plane ticket to send Matthew back to his home in Texas — but when Matthew arrived to the home and saw Julie (along with others), he freaked out … “ran outside into the backyard and began screaming.”
Hyland says Prokop threw a lighter at her — and that’s when Julie stepped in and told Sarah to get out of the house because she wasn’t safe around Prokop.
And if you’re inclined to think, well, maybe this guy just needs some counseling. He actually was checked into a rehab facility, and here’s how that went:
Hyland says Prokop entered a rehab facility in August — but he got out on Sept. 21st … and claims the director of the facility contacted her and told her it would be in her best interest to get a restraining order against him due to his mental state and attitude against her.
JESUS. But then again, maybe Sarah Hyland pointed out a sexist trope in a video game in which case she basically needled him into choking the shit out of her, threatening to kill her dog, and promising to light her house on fire. And, shit, if she had a sex with a video game journalist, that’s grounds to burn her in the town square. Grab your torches, men!
