Jennifer Aniston has obtained a restraining order against a man who was arrested for lurking around her Hollywood Hills home last week while carrying a “sharp object,” according to online reports. Court documents obtained by TMZ.com state that Jason Peyton was found “laying-in-wait” near her property on July 15th “with a sharp object, a bag, a roll of duct tape and written messages about (Aniston)”.
Peyton was placed on a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold following the arrest. Aniston’s lawyer tells the website Peyton spent eight days trying to locate the actress before he was taken into custody. Upon his arrest, police found messages carved into the paint of his car reading, “I LOVE YOU JENNIFER ANISTON.”
The legal papers go on to claim: “Peyton is an obsessed, mentally ill and delusional stalker – with a history of violence and criminal stalking – who drove cross-country in his delusional ‘mission’ to locate and marry (Aniston), with whom he believes he is in a relationship.”
Meanwhile, Sandra Bullock is also dealing with a stalker! Sandrafiled for a temporary restraining order on Monday against a man she claims has been stalking her since 2003, E! Online reports. Thomas James Weldon was given a permanent restraining order in 2003 after Bullock reported his repeated attempts to contact her.
Permanent restraining orders last three years in California and after one extension in 2006, the order ended last year.
After the first restraining order in 2003, Weldon checked himself into a Tennessee psychiatric facility. Bullock later sued the state in 2006 to ensure she’d be notified when he was released.
Apparently, that didn’t happen. Per the request filed by Bullock, Weldon showed up in Wyoming emergency room last month complaining of anxiety and sleeplessness. He told hospital personnel that had driven from Tennessee hoping to meet Bullock at her Jackson Hole, Wyoming home. He also told doctors he communicated with Bullock telepathically and that he was not taking his medications, according to the Associated Press.
“His preoccupation with Ms. Bullock is obvious,” Dr. Jiri Danczik, a psychiatrist, wrote in a sworn declaration.
It must be so scary dealing with stalkers! You never know!
