Katy Perry rushed to court pleading for protection against an alleged stalker who trespassed on her property and is harassing her family.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the pop star filed a petition for a restraining order against a man named William. The documents note, “believed homeless and living in silver Buick sedan.”
The petition is asking for protection for her partner Orlando Bloom along with her 1-month-old daughter Daisy Bloom and the actor’s 9-year-old son Flynn.
Katy writes, “I do not know him. He is a complete stranger who trespassed on my property, is stalking me and who threatened my family.”
The pop star lists the last date of harassment as September 8, 2020. She says Orlando and Daisy were with her when it happened. She writes, “William jumped the fence of my home in the Beverly Hills area.”
She adds, ‘Security ordered Terry to leave. When he refused, he was placed under citizen’s arrest and then formally arrested for criminal trespass by the” LAPD. The man allegedly told Katy’s security he intended to enter the home.
Katy says she fears for her safety and the safety of her family. She added, “William has made threats on Twitter including that he wants to “snap Orlando Bloom’s neck” as well as lewd posts about me. He has entered my property and poses a violent threat to all of us.”
The “America Idol” judge says, “I do now know if this person owns or possesses any firearms or other weapons. I have great fear that he does or may have access to weapons. I am in immediate fear for my own safety, that of my partner, my newborn child, our family, and friends.”
The court granted the temporary restraining order for Katy. A hearing has been set for October 8th on whether to make the order permanent for the singer.
