CM Punk says he is the best in the world. According to Punk, his mother isn’t the best mother in the world.
TMZ reported earlier today that the former WWE champion filed a restraining order against his mother. Punk stated in the order that his mother always asks him for money and when Punk doesn’t give her money, she threatens to kill herself.
Punk claims in legal docs filed in Illinois that he’s tried to break off his relationship with his mother for more than a year, “due to repeated financial demands and years of abusive, harassing and threatening behavior.”
In the document, Punk says he’s made an effort to help his mom who he claims suffers from bipolar disorder and has given her more than $100,000. But Punk says her “abusive/threatening behavior” escalated when he cut her off.
That’s when Punk’s mom allegedly unleashed a torrent of nasty emails telling Punk, “You don’t give a s**t about us. You just care about your money and money hungry/fame hungry friends. You would sell us for a nickel.”
In the docs, Punk says his mother has threatened to commit suicide on at least 4 occasions in 2012.
Punk says, “I wish for the harassment to stop and am requesting the assistance of the court in this regards.”
The judge in the case granted the temporary restraining order back on June 10 — but the wrestler is due back in court today where he will likely try to extend the protection order for several years.
