Former NCIS actress Pauley Perrette has been accused of stalking her ex-husband, sending him handwritten death threats and climbing through his bedroom window to attack one of his female friends. 

The claims are made in a lawsuit filed against the actress by her estranged musician husband Coyote Shivers

The pair were married between 2002 and 2006 but parted ways acrimoniously after six years together. 

Shivers, 52, is now seeking personal injury damages from his ex, claiming she has done nothing but defame and harass him since they split. 

His lawsuit, which was first reported by The Blast after being filed this week, lays out his accusations. 

Coyote Shivers is suing his ex-wife Pauley Perrette (above together in 2003) claiming she stalked and harassed him. They were married from 2000 to 2006 but have since been at war

Shivers alleges that after they broke up, Perrette begged him to get back together and threatened to label him a stalker if he did not agree. 

He claims that she sent dozens of 'malicious, harassing and legally defamatory' emails to people he was working with after he was elected into the Hollywood United Neighborhood Council. 

It is not their first court tango. 

In 2014, they both accused one another of stalking as Perrette tried to extend a restraining order which prevented him from being near her. 

At the time, he claimed that she had forced him off of NCIS – which she recently quit  alleging 'multiple physical assaults' – and tormented him. 

Perrette claimed that her ex-husband posed as a woman online to get to her and that he left her in fear of her life.

Details of her alleged break-in at his home to attack a 'female friend' were not available on Wednesday morning. 

Perrette recently quit NCIS after 15 series claiming on Twitter that she had suffered 'multiple physical assaults'. 

'I refused to go low, that's why I've never told publicly what happened. But there are tabloid articles out there that are telling total lies about me. If you believe them? Please leave me alone. You clearly don't know me. (Sorry guys, had to be said),' she said.

She continued: 'Maybe I'm wrong for not “spilling the beans” Telling the story, THE TRUTH.'

'I feel I have to protect my crew, jobs and so many people. But at what cost? I don't know. Just know, I'm trying to do the right thing, but maybe silence isn't the right thing about crime. I'm… Just… ?'

'There is a “machine” keeping me silent, and feeding FALSE stories about me. A very rich, very powerful publicity “machine”'.' 

Alyssa Milano was among those who responded to her worrying comments to offer her support. 

CBS responded by confirming that she had come to them with a workplace concern a year ago.

In a statement, the network said: 'Pauley Perrette had a terrific run on NCIS and we are all going to miss her. Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern.

'We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution.'
