Paris Jackson Granted Temporary Restraining Order Against Man Who Allegedly Stalked Her for 15 Hours
Paris Jackson has taken extra precautions to assure her safety from a crazed follower.
The sole daughter of the late Michael Jackson has been granted a temporary restraining order against Nicholas Lewis Stevens, the stranger with whom the model had an uneasy interaction with last month, per legal documents acquired by TMZ, who broke the story on Tuesday (July 3).
In court papers, Jackson details being approached by the 23-year-old on June 13 as she and a bandmate were leaving a recording session, after which Stevens stopped her for a brief exchange before revealing he'd waited 15 hours for the 20-year-old at the same studio the week before.
When a friend of hers challenged why he was there, Stevens reportedly said, "What the f--k does it look like I'm doing here? I'm stalking your b---h."
What's even scarier is the alleged stalker seemed to threaten the star with violence, saying, "By midnight it will all be over," warning that "the way it ends is with her or with a shotgun." Stevens was subsequently taken into police custody.
Now, a Los Angeles court has demanded Stevens stay at least 100 yards away from Jackson and have no contact with her until their hearing on July 24.
This new order must offer some relief for the young star, who recently mourned the loss of her grandfather, American talent manager Joe Jackson, who passed last week after his battle with terminal pancreatic cancer.
