Detroit’s “Walking Man” Files Restraining Order Against Girlfriend, Who Reportedly Wants Her Cut
Not only has Detroit’s “walking man” James Robertson had to relocate from his former home since receiving $350,000 in donations and a brand new Ford Taurus , he has also unplugged from just about everyone in his life, except for a select few including close friends and his coworkers. Among the people he’s left in the past is his ex-girlfriend and former landlady, Tanya Fox, 60. He has also been granted a protective order against her.
According to Detroit Free Press, Fox told the deputy who served her with the protective order that Robertson owed her a lot of money.
In a statement provided in his personal protective order request, Robertson claimed that Fox showed up to his job, which caused his bosses at the factory to contact police.
“I can only say I wish her the best,” said Robertson.
Fox reportedly communicated with the Free Press for weeks via text messages. Apparently, she was trying to set up an interview with a reporter and Robertson so that she can discuss all that she has done for the 56-year-old over the years, but it doesn’t appear that this will happen now.
“At one time, we contemplated marriage. Wow!” Fox wrote in one text message.
She intends to contest the protective order, insisting that she’s done nothing to make her ex feel that he’s in any sort of danger.
“I’m not a threat to him, and no one in this house is a threat to him”, said Fox.
However, according to reports, when Robertson was moving out of her Detroit property, cops had to stand guard because her son and ex-husband had become so aggressive towards him. As for the money he allegedly owes her, Fox had this to say:
“He said he was going to give me $50,000 to fix up the house.”
