The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom filed the restraining order after an incident at her home late Sunday, August 12, according to the order obtained by Page Six. Danielle got the order because she “believes that [Caffrey] is attempting to tarnish her reputation and career by making repeated false reports to the media,” the filing said. The order is valid until August 20, when Danielle and Marty are due in court.
Earlier on Monday, Page Six reported that Danielle had hired a divorce attorney after three months of marriage. Danielle and Marty wed on Bimini Island in the Bahamas on May 5. “Danielle has received a letter advising her to retain counsel, which she has. The two attorneys spoke and both sides agreed to keep this matter private," Danielle's rep said in a statement. "It’s disappointing to her that only 48 hours later that understanding is apparently no longer being honored.”
The news comes less than a month after it was first reported that Danielle was "having some difficulties with her marriage," her rep said in a statement to PEOPLE in late July. Though Danielle had remained hopeful that the two could work out their issues, she soon expressed her disappointment over how Marty was handling their marital problems in the public eye. "Danielle is very disappointed that Marty spent time composing a three-page statement for the media but won't sit down and talk with her about the situation," her rep said in a statement earlier this month. "She is also disappointed that he seems much more concerned about press coverage than he does about his marriage."
