According to legal documents, Paris Jackson is seeking a restraining order against a man who has been stalking her for multiple years.
As reported by TMZ, a friend of Jackson recently spotted the man intruding on her property and looking in her windows. Following the encounter, she went to Los Angeles police to report the intruder and to seek a restraining order against him after years of alleged harassment.
On Aug. 23, she said the man in question, whom she doesn't know, scaled the fence of her property. He's apparently been spotted in the area numerous times and was even arrested there on one occasion. As reported by TMZ last month, one of her friends spotted the intruder in Jackson's backyard. Her friend confronted the man, who then fled the scene. According to law enforcement sources, he showed up at her home just two days after she filed the restraining order against him.
In her request for the restraining order, she said that he's been sending her messages since at least December 2019. She added that she's afraid of being home alone since the latest incident and is scared that he might become increasingly dangerous. Per the filing, she is hoping to have him prohibited from contacting her online and is asking for him to be at least 100 years away from her, her home, her vehicles, and any venue she might perform at.
Last month, Jackson said that she was harassed by fans over how she chose to commemorate her late father Michael Jackson on his birthday.
"Social media is apparently how people express their love and affection these days,” she said in a video shared to instagram. “And if you don’t wish someone a happy birthday via social media, it apparently means that you don’t love them, you don’t care about them. There have been times where I don’t post anything for my dad’s birthday and people lose their fucking minds. They tell me to kill myself and they’re basically measuring my love for my own father based off of what I post on Instagram. So, I made you guys a little video and I hope you enjoy it.”
