Edward Furlong's wife gets restraining order

'T2' star allegedly left spouse profane, threat-laced messages

Actor Edward Furlong, best known for playing John Connor in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," is embroiled in an explosive separation from his spouse, Rachael Kneeland, who was granted a temporary restraining order last Friday, according to celebrity news website TMZ.

Furlong has been ordered by the L.A. County Superior Court to stay at least 100 yards away from his estranged wife and their three-year-old son, Ethan.

The application for the restraining order reportedly includes profanity- and threat-laced transcripts of voicemails and text messages Furlong sent Kneeland. She plans to play the voicemails -- in which Furlong allegedly threatens to assault Kneeland's new boyfriend, and refers to her as "vermin" -- during a scheduled Aug. 31court hearing.
