According to Lark in her recent interview, she believed her family, specifically her mother was on board with the marriage despite the rumors that the man she married, Jimmy Green being a convict and gang member. She said, “The support was there,” she added, “It’s all celebratory.”

If that was the case, her mother is certainly changing her tune now because last month her mother filed a restraining order against Green. She filed on the grounds that she lives in constant fear that he will “cause her physical harm.”

The newlyweds live in the same home Voorhies already shared with her mother and they have been living there since April. According to Patricia, Voorhies lives with her mother because she is mentally unstable and claims that she battles with bi-polar disorder. However the actress denies the claim saying, “No, I’ve always been mentally healthy.” She did however admit to having what she calls, “textbook clinical depression” after the end of her first marriage in 2004.

Voorhies mother still believes that Green is taking advantage of her daughter but Lark continues to stand by his side. She defended him saying, “He’s not,We’re selectively together for all the right reasons.”

Green stated during the interview, “We’re the same as any other couple out there that’s in love and trying to accomplish business together. It’s not a scam or a way to get money.” He also did admit to being ‘aggressive’ towards his mother-in-law.
