Former professional baseball player and former Celebrity Apprentice star Jose Canseco has had a restraining order filed against him by his ex-girlfriend, bikini and fitness model Leila Shennib.

"I broke up with him six months ago and he's been harassing me and threatening me ever since," Shennib said. "One day he's proposing to me and sending me flowers and teddy bears, and the next day he's slamming me on Twitter, putting my phone number up there and saying hurtful things."

Canseco went on a twitter rant in early July, writing tweet after tweet dissing his ex-girlfriend. Some of the tweets are R-rated, but here is a sampling of his tweet rant:

"What a hateful egotistical (expletive) my x Leila is. Watch out guys. She will drain you."

"Leila Shennib grow up and stop treating men like (expletive). Ur nowhere near perfect or an angel. C U at the mansion. She [is] half naked."

"Call Leila [lists her phone number]. Bring pot her favorite."

And his most recent tweet is little poem:

"Roses [are] red, violets [are] blue. My [ex] is a pot head and so is her boo."

Shennib filed the restraining order on July 21st and requested her mother be protected and that Jose Canseco must stay away from her home, car and workplace.

"I just can't take his torture anymore. He's so manipulative," Shennib said.
