For this Joker, keeping up with Kim Kardashian means having to stay away—at least five football fields away.

A Los Angeles judge today granted the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star a permanent restraining order against alleged stalker Dennis Shaun Bowman, a 26-year-old Georgia man who had a creepy propensity for turning up at Kardashian's L.A. appearances dressed in Heath Ledger-esque makeup in a bid to woo her.

Turns out, that doesn't really work...

Neither Bowman nor Kardashian was in court for today's ruling. The 29-year-old babe is down in Florida supporting boyfriend Reggie Bush as the New Orleans Saints star preps for this Sunday's Super Bowl.

The order of protection extends until 2013 a temporary order issued last month. Bowman, described in Kardashian court documents as "delusional," can't come within 500 yards of Kardashian or have any contact whatsoever—including Twitter. The would-be prankster's also prohibited from possessing any firearms.

There's been no immediate comment from Team Kim, but we're guessing she's the one laughing now.
