Doja Cat’s brother knocked her teeth out, singer’s mom claims in restraining order filing

Doja Cat is allegedly being physically abused by her older brother, according to a temporary restraining order filing obtained by Page Six.

The documents filed by the “Paint the Town Red” hitmaker’s mom, Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer, on Jan. 12 in Los Angeles Superior Court allege her son, Raman Dalithando Dlamini, knocked the singer’s teeth out.

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.
