In documents filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court, Patridge's lawyers requested the order of protection against 24-year-old Zachary Loering on behalf of the reality starlet and her roommate-brother, Mark.
"I can confirm that Audrina Patridge filed a restraining order against an overzealous fan," her rep confirms to E! News. "Audrina and her family have no relationship with this person."
Court docs state that on Aug. 26, Patridge and her makeup artist answered a knock at her front door to find Loring with a stack of poems, pictures and cards he had made for her—including one drawing of a woman being strangled, ominously scrawled with the future date, Sept.15, 2009.
And it gets creepier.
Loring proceeded to offer Patridge a beer, telling her it was from his family's brewery and asking her to drink it in front of him. Obviously, Patridge declined and shut the door, but three days later her surveillance cameras captured Loring camped out on her porch from 7 p.m. until 2 a.m., talking to himself throughout the footage.
The documents continue to depict the Patridge siblings fears, stating that the following day, the new scream-queen found the troubled young man sitting on a wall on the side of her house, dressed to the nines in a suit and tie.
This time Audrina reported the incident, with police officers arresting Loring for outstanding warrants and trespassing. He was released from jail a day later.
Patridge "is in fear for her physical safety and emotional well being" and is so frightened, she hasn't been staying at her home or in Los Angeles County, state the filings.
The court granted temporary orders of protection, barring Loring from contacting, harassing, or trying to locate Patridge. and stay a minimum of 100 yards away at all times.
A hearing is scheduled on Sept. 30.
