Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, better known as singer Lana Del Rey, was granted a restraining order against the stalker who she claims stole her car last February.
The Blast exclusively obtained the court documents that show that a judge has granted the singer’s request for a restraining order after deciding that her alleged stalker is a credible threat to the safety of both her and her family.
Lana Del Rey Filed For A Restraining Order After Alleged Stalker Broke Onto Her Property & Stole Her Car!
According to the court documents, the “Summertime Sadness” singer, 37, filed a restraining order on July 14 against her alleged stalker, Eric Everardo, age 21. She also sought protection for her sister Caroline, 34, brother Charles, 29, and her sister’s fiancé, 37.
In the documents, she states, “Eric Everardo is a stalker. I have no relationship whatsoever with him.” When asked what harm she experienced, Lana Del Rey wrote, “As a result of Eric Everardo’s harassment/stalking of me, I have suffered, and continue to suffer, emotional distress.” She also writes, “I am scared” of him, adding that she has “no contact with him.”
In the paperwork, she states that she was “informed” that Everardo first came to her home on or about February 17, 2022, when he allegedly drove to her home, made it onto her property, and stole her car.
“I reported Mr. Everardo to the police, and I understand that he is currently criminally prosecuted for two felonies; residential burglary and grand theft auto,” the documents state. “However, I also understand that he is not currently in police custody.”
Things Take A Turn For The Worse When Her Alleged Stalker Contacts Her Sister
Earlier this month, Del Rey claims that he returned to her home on July 5, 2022, and left a bag for her at her gate. Among the items contained in the bag was “a handwritten letter from Mr. Everardo to me that was incredibly disturbing and indicated his desire to see me again,” according to the docs.
Things took a turn for the worse on July 12, when the “Young and Beautiful” singer claims he sent a text message to her sister, Caroline. She says that he had also sent her text messages back in February, but these messages contained his name and GPS location, which her security team was able to verify. Del Rey filed for a restraining order two days later.
Lana Del Rey claims she’s never communicated with him or even met him before. “There is absolutely no reason for him to be attempting to contact me or my sister, or to be approaching my home,” she wrote.
“I am fearful for my safety and for the safety of my family because, among other things, Mr. Everardo broke into my home, stole my car, came to my home again to leave me a disturbing letter and other bizarre materials, and sent and continues to send harassing and threatening messages to me and my family,” she continued.
Lana Del Rey Granted Restraining Order For Her & Her Family After Frightening Encounter With Alleged Stalker
Shortly after “The Other Woman” singer filed her restraining order, a judge in Los Angeles granted her order of protection. In addition to her, sister Caroline and brother Charles were also granted protection; however, a wavy line had been scribbled over the name of her sister’s fiancé.
According to the court documents, Everardo is not allowed to contact the “Doin’ Time” singer in any way, including text messages or handwritten messages. He’s also not allowed to intimidate, threaten, stalk, destroy her personal property, or disturb her general peace. He is also required to stay at least 100 yards away from her, her home, her job, and her car.
In her petition, Lana Del Rey admitted that she didn’t know if Everardo had guns, but if he does, he is now required to turn them over to a law enforcement agency or sell them. If he doesn’t, he is subject to jail time and a $1,000 dollar fine.
The court says they granted they granted her restraining order because it is “based on unlawful violence, a credible threat of violence, or stalking.”
The restraining order expires at the date of their hearing next Friday, August 5, 2022.
