Washington: Playboy Playmate Claire Sinclair has been granted an emergency restraining order against Hugh Hefner’s son, Marston Hefner, after he allegedly beat her up during a heated argument.
Police officers at the Pasadena Police Department interviewed Sinclair about the incident and granted a stay-away order against the junior Hefner to give the model time to move out of the apartment she shares with him.
Sinclair says it’s a 5-day restraining order but law enforcement sources said it’s just 3, TMZ.com reported.
The Playmate plans to leave as soon as possible, but if she needs more time she’ll have to go to court to extend the protective order.
Sinclair, 20, said she called Hugh after the incident and he expressed his sympathies, claiming he was very disappointed by the situation.
Marston was arrested around 11:15 pm on Sunday for misdemeanor domestic violence after police responded to a 911 call from Sinclair’s family, and observed several injuries on the model’s body.
Marston, 21, who has been dating Sinclair on-and-off since August 2010, admitted that the two had gotten into an argument, but he did not hit her.
He has since been released on 20,000-dollar bail.
