Jessica Steinbrenner, daughter of former Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and current Bombers executive, is seeking a restraining order from her ex-husband after multiple alleged stalking incidents.
Steinbrenner claimed in a court petition filed earlier in September that Felix Lopez has stalked and continuously tried to speak with her since their divorce settlement, which has a no-contact clause in it, became official in February, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
She alleges that Lopez has been calling her, sending her text messages and even showed up unannounced to her home in Tampa at least twice in September alone.
In the petition, Steinbrenner also claims that Lopez followed her to a CVS in Tampa on Aug. 24 and tried to speak with her.
When she said he should not be contacting her, Lopez allegedly replied “No contact means nothing. What are they going to do me?”
Surveillance video at Steinbrenner’s home shows Lopez approaching the residence twice in September, once while trying to hide his face.
Steinbrenner, the general partner and co-vice chairwoman of the Yankees, wants a court order prohibiting Lopez from contacting her in any way and not allowing him to be within 500 feet of her, her home, George M. Steinbrenner Field, and Kinsman Farm (in Ohio where the family houses their horses).
Lopez was a Yankees senior vice president from 2005-09.
