I guess love is blind to background checks and other precautions you’d expect as part of the high-end matchmaker’s process, but the news ain’t great for David Kruase. The 41-year old ex baseball player turned mortgage broker has a messy, relationship past that includes a 2007 restraining order filed by an ex-girlfriend and some funny business re: his child support payments from a previous marriage, The National Enquirer broke the story. Sanger, 51 has never been married and the couple are talking about adoption. A little due diligence before monogamy might have been in order, Patti.
In 2007, David was on the receiving end of a domestic violence restraining order which required him to stay at least 100 yards away from former fiancee Erin Futterer and her then-11-year-old daughter.
In her application for the order, Erin said David was “not stable” and was “verbally and emotionally abusive.” She also provided e-mails in which David admitted he’d been diagnosed with “a mental condition” that required him to take medication to “stabilize” his mood swings.
WHILE DAVID DID NOT actually strike Erin, she stated: “I have no idea what he is capable of doing and I am afraid for my daughter and me…Bottom line is: I am scared of him.”
And that wasn’t the first time David had relationship troubles. According to court documents obtained by The ENQUIRER, David’s ex-wife, Diane, alleged during their 2002 divorce that he “failed to care for” their two young children during overnight visits and “didn’t have them groomed and ready for school in the morning.”
What’s worse, the documents, which were filed in California’s Orange County Superior Court, imply that David was trying to work a lesser-paying job to circumvent a large child support payment. “[David] should not be allowed to change his employment, reducing his income from $7,000 per month to an alleged $2,500 to the detriment of the support of his children,” Diane stated.
A judge eventually cleared him of the allegations, ruling that he had NOT “intentionally depressed income in order to shrink his parental responsibility to support his children.”–National Enquirer
