Although they seemed to be a perfect couple on the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills", Dr. Paul Nassif and Adrienne Maloof's marriage was anything but.
Maloof was granted a temporary restraining order from her estranged husband Nassif and received temporary custody of their three children on Sept. 19. But on Sept. 26, Nassif was granted two supervised visits before his Oct. 9 court date, which determines whether or not the restraining order will be permanent.

Why do the visits have to be supervised? Because the plastic surgeon allegedly has anger issues and displays aggressive behavior.
"There were concerns about Paul's temper, and this is the reason why the judge ordered him to have supervised visitation with their three sons," a source close to the situation told RadarOnline. "Paul had wanted the judge to re-instate his visitation when he went into court on Wednesday but his request was denied. The judge would have given Paul his legal rights back to the kids if he felt that the allegations involving physical and emotional abuse lacked merit. Yes, Paul was cleared by social workers of physical abuse allegations but that doesn't mean that there aren't other areas of concern when it comes to the safety and well-being of the kids."
Not only did Nassif allegedly choke one of his children, but he also reportedly pulled Maloof and his children's hair and shoved his estranged wife.
According to RadarOnline, in a sworn declaration, family friend and former DEA agent Ed Follis said: "I was also present at the family residence on Wednesday, September 12, 2012, when Paul arrived to pick up the children. I saw that Paul looked very angry, and he yelled at Adrienne about not taking the boys to soccer practice. I saw Paul grab one of the six-year-old twins by the hair, and he yanked the child. The child started screaming and appeared to be very frightened. I am worried about the well-being of the children when they are with Paul because he reacts violently in many situations. I have seen him react to the behaviors of the children and his usual response is to yell at them, grab them, and pull them away to get them to stop whatever they are doing that he does not like."
In Maloof's sworn statement, she said: "Paul Nassif has often shoved me to the ground, pulled my hair and yelled at me. Most recently, in July 2012, he shoved me to the ground with enough force that I hit my head on the floor when I fell. I immediately jumped up because I knew that if I stayed down I could be kicked. He grabbed my hair and pulled. I grabbed his hair, trying to get him off of me."
The family chef claimed that he had observed "Paul drinking large amounts of alcohol and in particular, scotch on a daily basis. While at the residence Paul had a nightly habit of drinking one-and-a-half highball glasses full of scotch without ice or water.....When Paul drinks, Paul tends to fight with Adrienne. I have overheard many arguments between Adrienne and Paul and during some arguments I have heard Adrienne say, 'Get off me. Get away from me.'"
After Nassif learned he was granted supervised visitations, he wrote on his official Facebook fan page, "Good day. Very good day. I get to see my boys again!"
