Judge Approves year long restraining order against
Dominique's Parents yesterday. Neither one can come with in 500
feet of her until Dec 2000 which a judge will review the case again.
Dominique accused her parents, mostly her dad, of: following her;
abusing her physically and verbally; and of threatening to have
couch and friend killed.
Dimitri Moceanu plead the fifth when asked if he
did mention the thought of hiring a hit man to kill Dominique's
couch and friend. The
parents sat in the court room with little expression even when Dominique
broke down crying on the stand. She claimed a great fear and intimidation
from her father.
She has been living on her own since the November
trails and will continue to probably from here on out. She is trying
to find out how much her dad spent of her million dollar plus earning
from endorsements. Neither of the Moceanu's have worked since the
'96 Atlanta Olympics mostly because they have been living off of
Dominique's endearment earnings.
We'll keep you posted as we know more.....
(October 28, 1998 1:44pm CST) The Judge accepted
it and Dominique got what she wanted although problems still have
to be solved. Such as her father's claims that she has had a relationship
with a married man.
News broke just this minute: Moceanu and her family
met privately with their attorneys and have reached an agreement
which will be submitted to a judge for approval tomorrow. All restraining
orders have been lifted and final details are being worked out right
now at the end of a 4 hour meeting.

Dominique talked to Dateline NBC last night (Monday
26,1998) about her reasons and why she felt they were valid.
She said her dad and mom have hit her and taken
her independence's and freedom. Most teenagers experience this feeling,
but we aren't talking about most teenagers. This is someone mature
beyond her years and who has made as much as $4 Million which she
can't account for because her dad has mis-managed her funds and
She claimed that she has been the only income for
the family since 1996. She is emotionally hurting as she told Dateline
that she just wanted to know what was going on and not feel used.
She also said the little girl we saw in '96 is
all groan up. 6" taller and 20lbs heavier. Stunning and talented.
She is now sharing a nice apartment with her coach
and friend. She showed Dateline NBC the apartment so people might
see that she is responsible and mature enough to control and manage
her earnings and life.
She still hopes to compete in the 2000 Olympics
but on her terms and conditions. With the coach of her choice.
She was schedule to give a deposition Tuesday 27,
1998 before the court and her parents have the right to be there.
This will probably be the first time they will meet face to face
since Nique left home.
She is strong but everyone needs the Lord and someone
there to just say it will be all right and things will work out.
She is not wealthy right now but she is even more
stunning, because when you strip away the worldly possessions, you
get to see just her and her inner beauty and strength.
