Christian Chavez — Mexican soap actor turned international pop star — tried to MURDER his ex-boyfriend with a knife … this according to court docs filed by the ex-BF and obtained by our sources.
We broke the story … Chavez and Ben Stewart-Kruger were both arrested back in April following a domestic dispute at their Bev Hills pad.
After the incident, Ben obtained a temporary restraining order against Chavez — after filing documents with the court in which he explained:
“[Christian] attacked me, broke down bathroom door, armed with knife, attempted murder.”
In the docs, Ben explained, “We dated, I broke up with him, he was required to move out the day before this incident.”
“A verbal argument caused this issue. I was locked in the bathroom when police arrived.”
Despite Ben”s explosive allegations, officials have decided not to prosecute Chavez … for now at least … because there wasn”t sufficient evidence to back Ben”s story.
Still, a judge DID grant Ben”s request for a temporary restraining order against Chavez — requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away.
The two sides are due back in court on May 23.
