Things appear to have further gone down hill for Clint Eastwood after his failed attempt to get Mitt Romney elected. There are rumors about his marriage being on the rocks, and this week he had to go to court to get an order of protection against a man who claims to be his son.

According to RadarOnline, Eastwood told the court that the man has an “extensive rap sheet that includes attempted murder, burglary, assault, and narcotics and weapons charges.” The man entered Eastwood’s gated Monterey community and tried to get onto the actor’s property by saying he was his long-lost son, but he was stopped by security.
