Leonardo DiCaprio has been granted a restraining order against a woman who claims to be carrying his baby
Leonardo DiCaprio has been granted a restraining order against his alleged stalker.
The 'Inception' actor - who is currently dating model Bar Rafaeli - obtained the temporary order on Wednesday (25.08.10) against a woman who claims to be married to the star and carrying his child.
Chicago resident 41-year-old Livia Bistriceanu has been waiting outside the actor's Los Angeles, as well as turning up at businesses the star is associated with, according to gossip website RadarOnline.
Leonardo said in a statement: "I am frightened Ms. Bistriceanu and feel that my personal safety, and the personal safety of those around me is in jeopardy.
"Without a restraining order, I fear that there will not be sufficient law enforcement mechanisms to keep Ms. Bistriceanu away from me, especially since she (1) apparently maintains a delusional belief that she is my wife and carrying my child Jesus, (2) has recently stated and/or threatened that we will live together 'forever...in His Kingdom (3) has managed to locate and identify my private residence, and (4) has evidenced a willingness to make physical contact to me regardless of consequences."
Under the terms of the temporary restraining order (TRO), Ms. Bistriceanu has been ordered by Los Angeles Superior Court to stay at least 100 yards away from the actor, as well as his home, car and workplace at any one time.
A follow-up hearing to assess whether the order needs to be made permanent will take place on September 10.
