Is Sarah Hyland dating again? The “Modern Family” actress recently revealed what she wants in a boyfriend after her horrifying break up from abusive ex boyfriend Matt Prokop.
According to the Hamilton Spectator , 23-year-old Sarah Hyland told Life & Style magazine that she is open to dating again.
She also revealed what she looks for in a potential boyfriend.
“My type is people who make me laugh.
I don’t think it’s so much about looks.
It’s about personality, honestly – a sense of humour, sincerity, ambition and drive.” After a shocking break up from long-term boyfriend Matt Prokop, the “Modern Family” actress said she’s much better.
Working on ‘Modern Family’ and spreading awareness for adoption and cleaning up after your pets.” As we previously reported via the Boston Herald , Matt Prokop may have felt threatened by Sarah Hyland’s success on “Modern Family,” triggering his violent nature and causing tension in their already-strained relationship.
While “Modern Family” raked in Emmy and Golden Globes awards, Matt hasn’t appeared in anything notable recently.
“He was really frustrated,” a “Modern Family” source said.
“It fueled his anger.” Soon his frustration became violent.
“He repeatedly exhibited significant anger management issues, which included things like throwing objects in my direction in anger, pushing me, punching walls and slamming doors,” Sarah Hyland claimed in her request for a temporary restraining order.
“He would make vague threats, saying that he would ‘never hit a woman but (that I) deserve’ to be beaten.” But it didn’t end there.
Prokop “habitually verbally abused me, called me vile names” – including “whore” – “and degraded me in public,” Hyland said in the request.
Hyland made up her mind to leave after an explosive fight in May.
“He was critical of an outfit I was wearing.
He began calling me vile names, including shouting ’c-t,'” according to Hyland, who explained how he then became physical, pushing her up against a car and grabbing her throat, choking her, she claimed.
“I was in fear for my safety,” she wrote, explaining why she couldn’t leave him sooner.
Hyland said she asked her “Modern Family” mom Julie Bowen to come to her house to help “peacefully end the relationship.” Hyland says she had purchased a plane ticket to send Matt back to his home in Texas but when he came home and saw Julie, he freaked out and “ran outside into the backyard and began screaming.” Hyland says Prokop threw a lighter at her.
Julie stepped in and told Sarah to get out of the house because she wasn’t safe around Prokop.
After Hyland broke up with Prokop, she claims he “relentlessly bombarded me with vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voice mails including his own suicide threats.” The temporary restraining order she was granted requires Prokop to stay at least 100 yards away from Sarah and her dog at all times.
The “Modern Family” actress and ex boyfriend Matt Prokop lived together and started dating in 2008 when they met during their audition for “High School Musical 3.” They then starred in the film “Geek Charming” in 2011.
