Actor Christina Ricci was reportedly granted an emergency protective order against her husband James Heerdegen, following a “domestic battery radio call” conducted by the LAPD. The pair, who met at work while filming Pan Am, have been married since 2013 and have a 5-year-old son.
According to a report by Us Weekly, police were called to Ricci’s home last Thursday and she was later given an emergency protective order, which prohibits contact between Ricci and Heerdegen.
An LAPD spokesperson confirmed to the outlet that “officers responded to a domestic battery radio call” at 9.20am on June 25, however nobody was arrested. The spokesperson added that a “report was completed.”
Ricci and the film producer first met in 2011 as they worked on Pan Am together, after which they began dating. After tying the knot in 2013, they later welcomed a son named Freddie into the world who is currently 5 years old.
Ricci normally refrains from sharing her private life on social media, but in June she shared a homemade Father’s Day card for Heerdegen. The glittery cards were captioned by Ricci, “We ♥️ you, Daddy! @jamesheerdegen ♥️”
