What exactly happened between Joel Kinnaman and Gabriella Magnusson?
The RoboCop actor filed for an injunction against Magnusson in Los Angeles County Superior Court on August 6, 2021. Reports from TMZ claim that the court has issued a temporary restraining order. After receiving the legal threat, Joel Kinnaman posted a lengthy Instagram response. He detailed the model’s demands and said she had threatened him with violence. Her threats of violence against my loved ones and me have gotten so severe and precise that I felt I had no option but to obtain a restraining order, he said, explaining that he had been forced to seek legal counsel due to the constant “antagonistic” and “frightening” threats. In 2019, according to Joel Kinnaman, Magnusson reestablished communication with him. Once he didn’t react to the model’s sexually explicit messages, he started receiving threats, he said.
