Tracy Melvin Hinds, the son of Macy Gray, has been accused by his sister Aanisah Hinds of beating her mother. According to Page Six, Aanisah filed a temporary restraining order against Tracy on February 6, 2024, saying that he harassed her mother. Apart from Tracy and Aanisah, Macy has another child named Happy.

The legal documents of the restraining order revealed that the incident happened last week and Tracy allegedly got physical with Aanisah's fiancé Cornel Pearson when he tried to sort out the issues. Aanisah reportedly claimed that Tracy had previously created similar issues in 2022 and 2023 when he was drunk.

The documents also revealed that Aanisah approached the cops who told her to file a restraining order due to a lack of evidence against her brother. She said:

"We waited for the cops to come while he continued to bang on the doors of our rooms looking for confrontation. After he was out of the house, we locked the doros, but he came back through a window and harassing again. Later he pushed me and has done so many times."

Macy Gray was last seen in American Song Contest where she appeared as a participant. The 56-year-old has gained recognition for her albums that have been commercially successful.
