Prior to his death, Getty had secured a restraining order against DeJonge, who found him unresponsive at his home. In court documents obtained by TMZ, Getty claimed that DeJonge knew about a medical condition he suffered, that when combined with stress, caused his blood pressure to escalate, creating a “grave risk of death.” Getty claimed that DeJonge would exploit information about him, demanding money and property.
