Stacey Dash, “Clueless” Star, a Battered Wife?
“Clueless” star Stacey Dash was physically abused by her soon-to-be ex-husband several times, the 44-year-old actress revealed in a court document obtained by TMZ. In a restraining order issued on January 29, Dash claims that her husband, Emmanuel Xuereb, hit her in several parts of her body, including her face and head.
Dash also reveals that in one instance, Xuereb pinned her down to a bed and threatened to giver her the “worst night of her life.” Dash, who filed for divorce on the same day that the restraining order was issued, was married to Xuereb for more than two years.
Dash had her biggest break in 1995 when she was cast as Alicia Silverstone’s best friend in the teen movie “Clueless” despite being 28 years old at the time. She reprised her role as Dionne in the television series version of “Clueless,” which ran from 1996 to 1999.
Dash and Xuereb have no children but she has a son and a daughter from two previous relationships.
