Playing Lark Voorhies Defends Husband After Mom Files Restraining Order

ET's Kevin Frazier sat down with Saved by the Bell star Lark Voorhies and her husband, music producer Jimmy Green, getting them to open up about their quickie marriage and the restraining order that Lark's mother Patricia requested against her son-in-law.

According to Lark, her mother's initial reaction to her marriage was a far cry from today.

"The support was there," Lark told ET. "It's all celebratory."

But last month, Patricia filed a restraining order against Green, saying that she lives in constant fear of him that he might "cause her physical harm."

In the filing, Patricia explains that Lark lives with her and that Green has been staying with them since they wed in April. Green is an admitted former gang member and Patricia has expressed concerns that he might be taking advantage of her Lark.

"He's not," Lark said. "We're selectively together for all the right reasons."

Patricia says that Lark lives with her because the actress is "psychologically, mentally, and emotionally fragile and is currently under a doctor's care." Furthermore, in 2012, Patricia told People that her daughter had been diagnosed as bipolar.

But Lark has denied that she ever was or is bipolar.

"No," Lark answered when asked if she was or had ever been bipolar. "I've always been mentally healthy."

Lark did admit she had a bout with "textbook clinical depression" in the wake of her first marriage to Miguel Coleman, which ended in 2004, but she said "that's basically all it's been."

Green denied being aggressive with Patricia to the extent that a restraining order would be necessary, but he did admit to being "blunt and demanding."

As far as what they hope people will take away from their interview, Green said, "We're the same as any other couple out there that's in love and trying to accomplish business together. It's not a scam or a way to get money."
