‘Family Matters’ Star Darius McCrary Accused of Horrifying Child Abuse and He Quickly Claps Back

Things are getting messy for the actor and his wife.

Darius McCrary is dealing with some messy family matters.

The former child star best known for his role as goofy teen Eddie Winslow in '90s sitcom Family Matters has been accused of abusing his wife, Tammy Brawner, and even their baby daughter, Zoey. It got so bad on February 10 that Brawner asked for a restraining order against the actor.

McCrary responded with words of his own, adding insult to alleged injury. Here's everything that went down:

Abuse against women and children is no joke. Get the scoop on the court battle brewing between another former couple — Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran — with BET Breaks, above.

  • Tammy Claimed in court papers that Darius has been abusive to her and their daughter for years

    She accused him of coming home drunk and on drugs, throwing violent fits and even striking her.

  • Among the most horrifying allegations she made is that Darius once held their baby girl over a pot of boiling water, yelling about how he wished she was never born

    He also reportedly strapped her arms down to her sides during meal times.

  • Apparently, things got bad on February 10, when Darius went into a violent rage and started throwing things around the house, almost striking his daughter

  • The judge granted the restraining order, but Darius couldn't help but clap back at his wife's allegations:

    He also claims she's a "failed gold digger baller."

  • In the days following the incident, Darius threw some subtle shots on social media:

  • Darius's Ex, Karrine Steffans, also accused him of domestic violence and child abuse when they were together

    She admitted she saw him beat his son with a spoon. Darius was also arrested over unpaid child support.
