Justin Timberlake: Gets stay away order against woman
On Friday a judge granted Grammy award-winning singer Justin Timberlake a temporary restraining order against a woman who was reported to be "an obsessed, mentally unstable stalker" and had broken into his home.
In documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the "SexyBack" singer said that forty eight year old Karen McNeil trespassed onto his gated Los Angeles home on Thursday and was turned away at the door by his security guards. Later police was being informed.
A police spokeswoman said that there was no information on any incidents or arrests made regarding the case. The court order said that police detained McNeil, who appeared to be homeless, under an involuntary psychiatric hold.
The court ordered McNeil to stay at least one hundred yards away from Timberlake and his property and refrain from making contact with the singer.
The security guards turned McNeil away from Timberlake's property during two separate occasions in June, during which she said she knew him, a claim he denies. The incidents were captured on security cameras, the court papers state.
"McNeil's ever-increasing, aggressive and harassing conduct has become extremely frightening," the order said, by adding that Timberlake "fears for the personal safety of himself, his family and employees".
A hearing for McNeil is scheduled to be held on November.
