Less than a year ago, Hunter Tylo was so fearful of boyfriend Corey Cofield she took out a restraining order against him. Now they’re planning their wedding!
Although she accused the 39-year-old bass guitarist of terrorizing her children and forcing her to have sex, she’s now forgiven him, say friends, and the couple plans to marry.
The ENQUIRER has learned that The Bold and the Beautiful star isn’t the first woman to seek protection from Corey – his former live-in lover, Georgia Ginsberg, also accused him of domestic abuse. Georgia, who has a child with Corey, filed for a restraining order against him in January, while he was living with Hunter.
After years of heartache, Hunter, 46, was said to be overjoyed when she first hooked up with Corey.
But according to the restraining order she took out against him, he "snuck in the house in order to trap me upstairs" after she told him to leave on April 16, 2008. "When I tried to go past him, he violently grabbed my wrist, and as I tried to get free, he grabbed my neck tightly and said, ‘I’m not going to go away that easy.’"
She said that earlier that same month he "locked the bedroom door after I caught him in a lie about another woman and forced me to have sex saying, ‘Tell me you love me. Say it like you mean it.’" Court records describe how her daughters – Izabella, 12, and Katya, 11 – were left "visibly shaking" after he "disciplined" them while she was at work.
Corey denied all the allegations, but the judge granted the restraining order. In October, Hunter had the order lifted, saying that he’d been taking parenting classes and attending family and couple’s therapy.
"He has demonstrated a commitment to keeping peace in the family," she said at the time.
While Hunter and Corey haven’t yet set a wedding date, sources close to the couple say the big day could come soon.
"Hunter has shocked everyone by going back to Corey," added the source.
