Tucker Gets Restraining Order To Keep Husband Away

Country star TANYA TUCKER has won a restraining order against her ex-husband, songwriter GERRY LASSITER, as she attempts to win a custody battle over the couple's young daughter LAYLA.

The singer, known as THE TEXAS TORNADO, felt compelled to keep her ex away from her and her daughter after he allegedly threatened her life in a fight at her Nashville, Tennessee, home.

Tucker claims Lassiter flew into a rage when he realised his ex-wife had changed the locks without informing him, and threatened to blow her head off.

She alleges he later sped off in his car with their child.

A Nashville judge ordered him to return the child to his mother, despite Lassiter's claims that he's a "more stable" parent.

Layla is now in the custody of her mother and her father has been told not to interfere with her custody.

Meanwhile, Lassiter's spokesman claims the songwriter and his ex are working out things "amicably". He says, "They are doing what is best for their daughter."

Having been hired by Ms. Tucker (who was accompanied by her lovely daughter, Presley) for 8 hours of service on this Oscar night, let me say this. When reviewing all of our high profile clients of the last 5 years, none have been as down to earth, real, and super friendly as Ms. Tucker and her daughter. In my book, she is even more of a star behind the scenes, than when the cameras are rolling. By the way, the car she is getting into is a 1935 Rolls-Royce, 20/25 Sport Salon (by Windovers). It was originally built for Lady De Frece, who owned the Mayfair Hotel in London. It is currently one of the oldest original Rolls-Royces for hire in America.

Get your facts straight! Tanya was never married to Jerry Lasiter, Ben Reed, Glen Campbell or anyone else. You could be sued for not getting your facts right and you should retract this article.
