One of the pitfalls of leading a Charmed life...
Alyssa Milano has filed a request for a temporary restraining order against a man she has classified as an "obsessed and mentally unstable fan" who was featured in a recent documentary where he declared himself to be proudly "overobsessed" with the '80s pop star Tiffany, according to court documents obtained by E! News.
Per the petition filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, 54-year-old Jeff Turner, who appeared in the 2008 film I Think We're Alone Now, tried on two occasions to break into Milano's L.A. home and has made repeated attempts to contact her over the past two years, including a recent stab at getting access to the sports-loving actress' upcoming NFL sweepstakes gig.
Turner has made statements "indicating that unless restrained the conduct is very likely to continue," the complaint reads.
His most recent attempt to get into Milano's home, according to signed declarations included in the filing, was on Nov. 16, when he was confronted by her agent, David Bugliari from Creative Artists Agency, and her uncle, Mitch Carp.
According to their accounts, Turner told Carp and Bugliari that he was a friend of the family, and admitted to them that he had "bypassed around the guard gate and hiked through the woods," and then "climbed over the fence" to get to her house.
They called security, who escorted Turner off of the premises and noted his driver's license info. The guards allowed him to leave, but Carp and Bugliari reported the incident to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.
Milano's request also asks that her parents, Tom and Lin, and her brother, Cory, be protected by the terms of any restraining order against Turner, as well. She's asking that Turner be ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from her and her home, workplace and car, as well as the places of business of her parents, manager and agent.
A hearing has been set for Jan. 21.
