Lark Voorhies, known best for her role as Lisa Turtle in Saved by the Bell, married alleged gang member Jimmy Green during a secret wedding in Las Vegas back in April, and now her mom, Patricia Voorhies, has taken out a restraining order against him. Lark Voorhies met Jimmy Green on Facebook.
TMZ reports that Jimmy Green is a member of the Bloods, and that he not only throws gang signs at Lark Voorhies' mom, but has also been living in her home.
Patricia Voorhies claims that ever since marrying Lark Voorhies this past April, Jimmy Green has been sleeping at her home and constantly arguing with her--despite a previous agreement they made about him returning to his own home to sleep at night. Patricia Voorhies recently found Green asleep in her closet, and after waking him up, he allegedly yelled at her.
"You motherf—king woke me up, ain’t that a bitch," TMZ reports he said to his mother-in-law.

The restraining order states Jimmy Green must stay at least 100 yards away from both Patricia Voorhies and her home. That doesn't make Patricia feel any better about his marriage to her daughter, however.
She claims Lark Voorhies is in both an emotionally and mentally fragile state.

Lark Voorhies recently addressed her mom's allegations via her rep.
"We are obviously concerned about the allegations and we are looking into the matter," Voorhies' rep Jennifer Wolfson said in a statement to Us Weekly. "Lark feels these allegations are not true and would like this cleared up as soon as possible."
If Lark Voorhies is truly in an emotionally and mentally fragile state, she is likely being taken advantage of by this gang member. Hopefully the restraining order Patricia Voorhies has taken out on Jimmy Green keeps her safe, however it doesn't sound like there's much that can be done to protect Lark unless she admits the truth about her husband.
Are you shocked to learn the Saved by the Bell actress is living in this predicament?
