Popstar Jennifer Lopez slapped a restraining order on a fan who followed her home on many occasions.
The fan, Timothy McLanahan, has been arrested for stalking Lopez on an earlier occasion as well. But even after the arrest, he continued to send her mail, unwanted flowers, and attend her shows.
Lopez filed documents against him with the Los Angeles Superior Court, who issued a temporary restraining order against McLanahan. He is now required to stay at least 100 yards away from Lopez and her children, and to stay away from the children’s school and their home.
He is not allowed next to Lopez’s car or workplace either. According to US Weekly, the man has a history of violence.
