An Obsessed Fan Crossed His Boundaries: Billie Eilish Gets 3-Year Restraining Order

Billie Eilish – Fame can run both ways. It either can give you extra exposure and recognition and love above all or, hate with a number of obsessive traits that can be toxic and harmful in myriad ways. Musicians and public figures are the mere victims of harassment from their fans. This may sound absurd and funny but it really happens. 

Paparazzis and stalkers seems the partner of every celebrity that seeks for fresh juices to be published on online and magazines. 

Moreover, this is a common problem among musicians and other public figures. It may sound absurd but this is alarming. 

Grammy-award winner singer Billie Eilish was a victim of this. Billie Eilish as the new celebrity to join in the list, is doing her effort to avoid this kind of situation again. Consequently, the uninvited fan was constantly visiting her at her home that really creep her out. Of course, being so protective, the incident made her decide to file a restraining order. 

“My father repeatedly asked him to leave, but he refused…”

Billie Eilish has been granted a permanent restraining order against an obsessed fan.

The order prevents the fan from contacting Billie or her family, and from coming within 100 yards of them. This happened when a fan constantly shows up in her home unexpectedly and without invitation. Of course, after a long work in the music industry and working on her craft as a musician and advocate. 

Billie Eilish has reportedly had to take out a permanent restraining order against a fan who is allegedly obsessed with her. According to TMZ, the singer is getting a “long-term court-ordered protection” against the fan, who wouldn’t stop showing up uninvited at her house.

The restraining order will last for the next three years, and was granted on Thursday, June 18, 2020. While Billie and her legal team were hoping for a 5-year order, it can be extended if deemed necessary by a judge. Either way, the current order prevents the fan from contacting Billie, coming within 100 yards of her (or her parents), assaulting or harassing her, and coming near her workplace.

According to TMZ, Billie first filed legal documents in early May, saying that the fan showed up at her home without a mask and asked her father if she lived there. Billie said he returned later that night and was exhibiting “erratic behavior.”

“While we waited for security, [the fan] remained on our porch, sat down and began to read a book, while also continuing to engage in a periodic monologue. My father repeatedly asked him to leave, but he refused…”

Ugh, this sounds like a stressful situation—here’s to hoping the restraining order is effective. Musicians are struggling with this kind of situation and Billie Eilish is the new victim of this kind of abuse at some point. Privacy really matters and anybody would be annoyed if the same case goes to you right? It may sound flashy but in real life this is so creepy and terrifying in so many ways. Moreover, security is really a great help to ensure the security.
