Being a crab fisherman on Discovery Channel‘s Deadliest Catch has to be a lonely job, keeping the guys from their families for months, but is it enough to make you harass your loved ones? That may be the case for the show’s youngest captain, Elliott Neese, who has recently been accused of phone harassment! Read on for the scoop…
Apparently, Deadliest Catch star Elliott Neese has not been on the best of terms with his girlfriend for some time now, but new reports allege that he has actually been harassing her. Valerie Gunderson, the mother of Neese’s children, claims that the star is abusing alcohol and drugs, causing him to harass her via phone. TMZ claims that court documents filed by Gunderson accuse the crab fisherman of calling her more than 30 times, and sending near 15 texts on February 13, all in under an hour.
Valerie Gunderson claims that her ex has been violent in the past, attacking her back in 2006, and more recently in 2010 when he smashed some of her belongings. Gunderson goes on to reveal that Elliott Neese is obsessed, and even called her mother on the phone, saying: “If I can’t have Valerie nobody can.” Valerie, who feels threatened, went on to have a temporary restraining order put on Elliott Neese, barring him from any phone contact with her. TMZ tried to contact Elliott Neese, but was told that he was out fishing, and could not be reached.
