Emilio claimed in the papers that his brother was addicted to drugs and had been selling off their father's belongings to help support his addiction.

Emilio said that their father had been providing financial support to his son, but he is concerned about his son's addiction.

Further financial help is contingent on his son getting help from a residential drug program.

The restraining order was granted by a Los Angeles County Court, and requires Francesco to have no contact with Frankie or Emilio for three years, and must stay at least 100 feet away from his father.

Franki Vallie has six kids from four marriages.
