According to a temporary restraining order that was obtained by media outlet Page Six, Doja Cat’s mother, Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer alleges that her son Raman Dalithando Dlamini has physically abused both her and her daughter.

Sawyer also added that Doja needs protection from her 30-year-old brother after he gave the rapper a series of cuts and bruises.

“Raman has verbally assaulted her in a very degrading and demeaning manor [sic]”, the filing reads. Deborah also claims that her son constantly makes her daughter, Doja whose birth name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini — “feel unsafe and traumatized”.

Doja’s mom also alleges that Raman stole and damaged some of her daughter’s personal belongings as well as being physically abusive toward her “several times”. Deborah also claims that Raman threatened to kill her.

According to documents Doja Cat’s brother’s most recent violent encounter was earlier this month.

In the restraining order filling the rap artists mother, Deborah notes that she was granted a temporary restraining order against her son in 2017, however the restraining order has since expired.

Media outlet TMZ reported that a judge has granted Deborah’s request for temporary court-ordered protection from her so a hearing is scheduled to take place for a permanent restraining order.

The Woman rapper is yet to comment on matter.

Doja Cat and her brother Raman are the children of South African actor Dumisani Dlamini. Despite never meeting her dad, the actor has always gushed about her dad, particularly gushing about his dance moves. Last year the rapper did an interview with Ebro Darden’s Apple music show where she candidly opened up about her musical journey, influences and even talked about her dad, despite never meeting him.

“My dad is so good at dancing; he’s a goated (Greatest Of All Time) dancer. It’s unbelievable, there’s this one video that my mom showed me”, she shared.

Doja continued: “There’s one of him performing on Broadway I believe; his whole upper body was still but his feet were just like all over the place”.
