Miley Cyrus was granted a temporary restraining order on Friday against a man from Arizona who went to great lengths in his attempt to meet the Wrecking Ball singer. Devon Meek was the subject of several court documents filed on Miley’s behalf by her lawyers stating that Meek believes she is communicating directly with him via her songs.
Meek, who is from Sierra Vista, Arizona, was arrested back on May 16th and placed in a psychiatric hospital. The restraining order was obtained because he was very direct in saying he would try once again to meet Miley Cyrus once he was released. His arrest took place outside of a home he believed was owned by the singer.
One detective reports that Devon Meek told authorities they should “shoot him in the head” if he was unable to meet Cyrus. Detective Rosibel Smith also indicated in the written report that Meek “informed me that Mr. Meek stated that when he is released from the hospital, he will not stop seeking Ms. Cyrus and that he will continue to go to Ms. Cyrus’ residence until Ms. Cyrus accepts him or he dies.”
A hearing will be held on June 16th, at which time a judge will determine whether or not the restraining order should be continued.

Miley Cyrus has just recently gone back out on her concert tour. She was hospitalized as a result of an allergic reaction to a medication she was taking. Several overseas dates on her Bangerz tour had to be cancelled or postponed.
It’s got to be incredibly frightening when fans cross that line between enthusiasm and obsession, which sounds exactly like what Devon Meek has done. When someone suffers from mental illness their actions are often unpredictable. Hopefully this crazed fan gets the help he obviously needs and doesn’t cause any harm either to himself or to Miley Cyrus.
