Rock Band Guitar Cited As Instrument Of Domestic ViolenceS

The daughter of 43-year-old Blackstreet singer Teddy Riley has been granted a temporary restraining order against her dad after he allegedly abused his two daughters with a Rock Band guitar.

See, Rock Band is all about bringing people together, not tearing families apart. According to documents filed in LA County Superior Court and reported by TMZ, Teddy's 18-year-old daughter Taja claims that he spent a major portion of December 23rd "stomping, punching, and bashing" she and her older sister. Taja stated that at one point the singer "lifted a Rock Band guitar and threatened to kill person(s) w/ it." I think we can all agree that's not how a Rock Band controller is supposed to be used.

Domestic violence is a terrible thing, and shouldn't be treated lightly, so I don't want to hear anyone in the comments section suggesting the singer should learn how to swing a real guitar instead of screwing around with a plastic one.
