Camille Homme, the 15-year-old daughter of Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, has been granted a temporary restraining order against her father, TMZ and Consequence report.

The news comes after TMZ reported last week that Homme’s ex-wife, Brody Dalle of The Distillers, had filed for a restraining order against him on behalf of their two sons, Orrin, 10, and Wolf, 5. Those requests, however, were denied by two separate judges.

In Camille’s request, which was uploaded by Consequence, she alleges her father has physically, verbally and emotionally abused her and her brothers, describing similar incidents to what Orrin and Wolf had alleged in their filings. She writes that the three of them are “afraid retaliation from our father” and that “he might kill our mother or her boyfriend.”

“We’re afraid he might hit us or continue to abuse us emotionally,” she continues. “Please, we just want it to stop.”

Homme has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from his daughter. Camille also requested that Orrin and Wolf be protected by the order, but a judge ruled that, due to her age, she can’t file on behalf of her two younger siblings.

In a statement to TMZ, Homme’s lawyer says, “We believe that this [domestic violence claim], which was prepared by Brody, in her handwriting on the forms, was filed in retaliation for Josh obtaining a [temporary restraining order] against Brody for her physical abuse of Josh, among other things involving the children,” referring to the restraining orders Homme and Dalle filed against each amid their 2019 divorce.

Camille denies this claim, telling TMZ through a rep, “My [domestic violence restraining order] isn’t fake and was NOT written by my Mom!”

“It’s a means to an end,” Camille continues. “Everything in there is something I SAW, EXPERIENCED, and HEARD and is 100% true. To deny that is to deny the human right of free speech. I wish I could’ve protected my brothers under it, but unfortunately, the law says otherwise.”
