Steven Spielberg was granted a permanent restraining order against his alleged stalker after she made death threats and started impersonating the famous director online.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge granted a 3-year restraining order against a 48-year-old woman named Sarah Char.
Per the order, Sarah must stay 100 yards away from Steven, his wife Kate Capshaw, and their daughter Sasha. She is also prohibited from impersonating the director online. We’re told Sarah has been creating social media accounts pretending to be the real Steven Spielberg.
The document read, “Respondent shall refrain from tagging Petitioner, Protected Parties, or Amblin Partners or Amblin Entertainment on any social media platform. Respondent shall not impersonate Petitioner.”
The court order prohibits the alleged stalker from harassing, intimidating or threatening Steven and his family. She has to stay away from Steven’s home, job and workplace.
Steven’s powerhouse attorney Mathew Rosengart could not be reached for comment.
Back in December, Steven filed the petition for a restraining order telling the court Sarah was making violent threats to murder him. One message read, “If I have to personally MURDER people for stealing my IPs‚ I WILL. Get me?”
In the docs, Sarah was accused of an ongoing campaign of harassment which included sending several hundred harassing and threatening messages. Steven’s lawyer pointed out Sarah had
been arrested for making criminal threats and stalking him.
Further, law enforcement became aware that Sarah sought to purchase a gun in order to “kill” Steven. The entire ordeal caused Steven “substantial emotional distress” and caused him extreme concern that his stalker would follow through with her threats.
The judge was clearly convinced by the evidence presented by Steven and granted him the permanent order.
