He threatened to headbutt her and said "come over to my house n cause a scene about all ur gonna get is a headbut [sic] to the forehead."
He was spoken to by police days later where he said he was unaware the order was between him and the victim and he thought it only applied to the children.
Defence lawyer Rio Ramos said the offence was "merely empty threats".
She said her client was upset because the mother's older child - not his - had been badmouthing him to his children.
