Jennifer Lopez Granted a Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker
Singer Jennifer Lopez can now sleep soundly after a restraining order was issued against her 64-year old alleged stalker, Timothy McLanahan. Lopez’s lawyers filed documents in the LA Superior Court against McLanahan, claiming that he had been sending unwanted flowers and mail to the singer.
Lopez claimed that McLanahan stalked her from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and also attended her shows. Furthermore, he had been previously arrested for trespassing onto her property. The suspect who hails from Washington State also has a violent past.
To the Ain’t Your Mama singer’s relief, the alleged stalker was ordered by the court to stay 100 yards away from both her, her children Emme and Max, their school and their family home. Moreover, he must stay away at least 100 yards from Lopez’s workplace as well as her vehicle. A hearing on the restraining order has been set for January 24th.
Jennifer Lopez’s bodyguards claimed in court that the 64-year-old McLanahan does not reside in the area, and that in the past he has been arrested for threats and firearms violations. This is the reason the singer felt her safety was being threatened as well as that of her eight-year-old twins.
Sources reveal that this is not the first time the 47 year old hitmaker has had an encounter with a stalker. In 2013, she had a restraining order issued against John M. Dubis after he broke into her Hampton house in New York and lived in her pool house undetected for six days. Luckily for Lopez, she was not staying at the home during that unfortunate incident and nothing worse took place at that time.
Well, perhaps the 47-year-old singer can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the matter has reached the authorities. This dramatic incident took place amidst the breaking news of her flaming relationship with 30 year old rapper Drake who happens to be Rihanna’s ex boyfriend.
Just last week, Jennifer Lopez performed for guests who had gathered to usher in the New Year at a night club known as the Hakassen. Drake was also seen hanging out with friends in that same location. It is rumored that the two lovebirds will be releasing new music together soon. We can just hope that Lopez will not have any more unfortunate encounters this year and that she will now enjoy the New Year in peace.
