Doja Cat's Mother Files Restraining Order Against Son, Says He Knocked Musician's Teeth Out In Court Filing

Doja Cat's older brother, Raman Dalithando Dlamini, is facing serious allegations of physical abuse as revealed in a temporary restraining order filed by the singer's mother, Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer, on Jan. 12 in the Los Angeles Superior Court.

Sawyer adds that Doja — whose birth name is Amala Ratna Zadile Dlamini — needs protection against the 30-year-old after he gave her a series of cuts and bruises, per the documents.

“Raman has verbally assaulted her in a very degrading and demeaning manor [sic],” the filing reads, claiming he has also made the Grammy winner, 28, “feel unsafe and traumatized.”

Doja’s mom also claims Raman stole and damaged some of her daughter’s personal belongings.

As for Sawyer, she alleges Raman has also been physically abusive toward her “several times” over the past year and threatened to kill her.

The documents claim her most recent violent encounter with her son occurred in early January.

Sawyer states that she has been granted temporary restraining orders against her son since 2017 — but they have since expired.

TMZ reports that a judge granted Sawyer’s request for temporary court-ordered protection from Raman pending a hearing for a permanent restraining order.

However, Doja was not granted the same protection, per the outlet, since she would need to file her own restraining order request.

Reps for “Streets” singer did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

Meanwhile, the artist has been active on her social media amid her mother’s allegations against her brother.

The “Woman” rapper took to Instagram Tuesday to share Coachella’s 2024 lineup after it was announced that she would be headlining alongside Lana Del Rey, Tyler, the Creator and No Doubt.

She also posted a selfie of herself sporting three pairs of sunglasses Wednesday, with the caption: “:).”
