Harwick’s landlord was listed as a witness to his stalking incidents in March.
In May 2011 Harwick claimed that Pursehouse suffocated her, punched her and slammed her head onto the ground during a fight. He allegedly covered her mouth to keep her from yelling.
He then kicked her leaving her covered in bruises and unable to walk. She said she suffered broken blood vessels around her face and her back and neck suffered from whiplash.
‘There were multiple arguments in which Gareth Pursehouse choked me, suffocated me, pushed me against walls, kicked me, dropped me to the ground with force, force-restrained me, slammed my head into the ground and punched me with a closed fist,’ she wrote in court paperwork dated June 22, 2011.
‘He has told me he hit me “because I made him so mad!” He refused to get help while in [the] relationship.’

In her 2012 restraining order she requested that the court order Pursehouse to enter a 52-week batterer intervention program.
Harwick obtained a temporary restraining order against Pursehouse in 2011, but she did not attend a follow-up hearing and the order was dismissed, according to court records.
Less than a year later she was granted another temporary restraining order. A judge extended that order in April 2012, which expired in April 2015.
In that agreement Pursehouse was ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Harwick and refrain from contacting her.
She recently ran into Pursehouse in January at the XBiz adult-industry awards ceremony, which was hosted by porn star Stormy Daniels, in downtown Los Angeles.
She was a guest at the show and walked the red carpet. Pursehouse was a photographer working the event and seeing her seemed to ‘reignite his obsessive preoccupation with her’, a friend said to the Los Angeles Times.

Following Harwick’s death, her friend Diana Arias started an online petition on Monday seeking to eliminate expiration dates on restraining orders.
‘Amie had a restraining order in place against a violent ex boyfriend she dated over a decade ago. The restraining order had expired before her untimely death,’ the petition that raised over 36,000 signatures Wednesday said.
‘In the last week of January 2020, this ex boyfriend attended an event, at which she was making an appearance, and continued his harassment of her. He began to stalk her thereafter and on late Valentine’s night decided to attack her in her own home.
In 2014, Harwick published The New Sex Bible for Women: The Complete Guide to Sexual Self-Awareness and Intimacy
‘This man clearly needed treatment, incarceration and/or punishment for years prior to this attack. She should have never been in this situation like so many other victims.’
The petition seeks to eliminate expiration dates on restraining orders and mandate long term counseling for stalkers and abusers.
Harwick was a well known sex and family therapist in the Hollywood area.
The former Playboy model received her degree in psychology from California Polytechnic University in Pomona, California and went on to earn a masters of arts in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University.
In 2015, Harwick appeared in the popular online documentary titled Addicted to Sexting.
She offered weekly therapy sessions at $200 per session, according to her site.
