OKSANA GRIGORIEVA had no idea the bodyguard she hired to protect her safety was a convicted felon until lawyers for her ex-boyfriend Mel Gibson filed for a restraining order against the criminal.
The Braveheart star raised concerns about Kristian Otto Herzog being around little Lucia after learning he had just been released from jail for firearms offences in March (10) and was on probation.
His legal team won a court request on Monday (04Oct10) to ban Herzog, who also had another prior gun conviction, from going anywhere near the tot following the crime revelations.
But Grigorieva insists she was unaware of the threat the security guard posed to her baby girl and she has now cut all contact with him.
Opening up about the restraining order to People magazine, she says, "He was somebody that was supportive of me. I didn't know anything about (his criminal record). I'm withdrawing any communication with him."
The restraining order is the latest in Gibson and Grigorieva's ongoing custody battle over baby Lucia following their split earlier this year (10).
