Suicide Squad actor Joel Kinnaman is set to marry Victoria’s Secret model Kelly Gale amidst being granted a restraining order against a woman who had extorted the 41-year-old actor for sexual activity.

Swedish-Jamika model Gabriella Magnusson, aka Bella Davis, and Kinnaman had a brief relationship in 2018 but the former resumed contact with him in 2019.

The model resurfaced in Kinnaman's life, listing several demands, sending sexually explicit messages and threatening the actor if he refrained from responding.

Joel Kinnaman rose to fame from his roles in “Suicide Squad,” “House of Cards,” “For All Mankind” and “The Killing.” The actor admitted to having consensual sex with Magnusson twice in 2018 but claimed to have stopped responding to her explicit text messages as he got into a relationship with Kelly Gale.

Bella Davis tagged Kinnaman’s fiancée in several posts, which called Kinnaman a “liar” and a rapist, but Gale refused to comment on the matter.

The Swedish actor requested a restraining order against Magnusson on 6 August 2021, in the Los Angeles Country Superior Court. TMZ reported that the judge granted a temporary restriction order.

The restriction order followed after Magnusson had been “threatening to physically harm” Kinnaman’s family and loved ones. The model also had a list of demands which included-

“money, Hollywood connections, helping to secure a work visa, a verified Instagram page, a Wikipedia page, a photoshoot with Sports Illustrated, an additional $400,000 USD for an apartment and more,” -Joel Kinnaman mentioned on Instagram.
