Report: Kim Couture granted temporary restraining order against Affliction’s Todd Beard

Gossip website TMZ is reporting that Kim Couture, wife of UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture, has been granted a temporary restraining order against Affliction general partner Todd Beard.

Affliction designs and manufactures a clothing line titled “Xtreme Couture” that is modeled after Couture’s brand. According to the report, the Coutures are claiming that “Beard has been on a campaign of terror against them since they asked for an accounting of profits.”

Additionally, Couture cites Beard’s alleged criminal past as reason to believe he poses a threat to her well-being.

“My fear of Mr. Beard is well-founded given his extensive criminal history,” the TMZ report quotes Couture’s declaration as saying. “Not only has he been convicted of numerous state and federal felonies relating to fraud …he has engaged in numerous acts of violence, including violence against women.”

As a part of the temporary restraining order, Beard will not be allowed to attend the weigh-ins for UFC 91 at the MGM Grand on Friday and will be prohibited from attending the event itself on Saturday, where Randy Couture is scheduled to defend his title in the night’s main event vs. Brock Lesnar.

    That dude is fucked!

    another nail in the Affliction coffin? pissing off Randy Couture and his stable of fighters is probably not a smart long term biz move

  • Bad Monkey says:

    It’s always a great idea to harass the wife of a guy who could twist your head off like a fuckin’ bottle cap!

    Realistically, this seems to be the biggest problem with the promotions that aim to compete with the UFC: Too many loose nuts running the show. First Gary & Jared Shaw and now this Beard guy?

  • Tom says:

    Sam does this cause you to rethink your pick? That is a lot of drama going around the Couture house and gym the week of a big fight. Randy’s a pro, but you have to wonder if any of this is causing him to lose focus.

  • Patrick says:

    Hopefully a few guys from Xtreme Couture will have a word with this unsavory character.

  • Matt says:

    With Fraud on his record, how’d he get affliction off the ground?

  • Cash says:

    more important question, if you knew he was a P.O.S, and dangerous, WHY did you pick him to make your signature line of clothes??

    More to the story me thinks.

    If anything, filing this restraining order should allow him to maintain focus. It must be pretty distracting to have a guy menacing your wife like that.

  • Mike Wolfe says:

    In order to obtain a restraining order Kim Couture would have to explain in her declaration the specific facts of his harassment of her. Prior criminal history wouldn’t be enough to obtain the order. What were the specific things he did to harass her? What did he do in his “campaign of terror?” The declaration should spell this out.

    I believe that deal was made two years ago or so. A lot can change during that time, and a lot of people don’t do background checks on their business associates so they may not have known until later.

    sub-question

    Is Donald Trump still involved with Affliction?

  • Jennifer says:

    Cash: I was thinking the EXACT same thing. You must have your head up your a$$ if you do business with this guy knowing his past. Makes me wonder WHAT the rest of the story is……… so curious!

  • jeff the drunk says:

    I heard this guy’s rant on the Scott Ferrall show and it sounded to me at the time like he was just trying to be outrageous for the radio and got way too carried away. But in light of this latest drama and the revelation of his violent criminal history, this guy is definitely mentally unstable and dangerous. Unfortunately, the Coutures made a really bad busniess decision. When you do busniess with convicted felons things like this or worse are bound to happen.

  • Davey D says:

    Todd Beard is going to drive Affliction MMA straight into the dirt. The ranting, threat’s and of course…all of his criminal history coming to light can not be good news to any current/future client’s or investor’s.

    Randy Couture is one of most beloved athlete’s in this sport. Todd Beard see’s fit to verbaly spar with Mrs. Couture and threaten her well being. Who in their right mind would further associate themselves with him and feel good about it? Sure as hell not me. I will not pay a dime for anything Affliction related. I never have and thanks to Ol’ Dirty Beard, I never will.
