Tyra Banks Granted Temporary Restraining Order against Stalker
Tyra Banks, supermodel-turned-TV personality, has been granted a temporary restraining order against her alleged stalker Marten Williams Jr.
Banks claims that Williams Jr. has been “targeting and harassing,” the star and members of her family for four years.
In Banks documents, filed by her lawyer Evan Spiegel in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Banks stated: “I am in fear from Mr. Williams for my personal safety, and that of those around me, including my family and employees.”
The supermodel also alleged that 39-year-old Williams has a history of mental illness and believes he “killed George Bush Jr and that Michael Jackson is alive and living in Long Beach”. Banks went on to claim that he also has left “ominous frightening letters and items,” including a note referencing a future wedding ceremony between the two, in her home.
Williams was ordered to stay at least a 100 yards away from Banks and her family until October 28, when another hearing will decide if it will become permanent. He was also arrested for trespassing at Banks’ Beverly Hills home earlier this month.
