Miley Cyrus has a stalker problem.
After a review of court filings on the case by a Los Angeles judge, Cyrus was awarded a temporary restraining order against an Arizona man who says he will not stop until he meets Cyrus.
The court filing said Devon Meek, 24, believes the singer is communicating to him through her songs and that was enough for the judge to grant Cyrus the restraining order.
The documents state that the alleged stalker is still being held in a psychiatric institute and is claiming when he’s released he “will not stop seeking out Ms Cyrus”.
“She is in fear for her safety because of his mental state and apparent obsession with Cyrus,” said the court filing.
On May 16, Los Angeles police arrested the man outside a property he believed is owned by Cyrus — although court documents don’t specify a location — and took him to the psychiatric hospital for evaluation. The would-be stalker from the southeastern Arizona city of Sierra Vista said he will continue to try to meet Cyrus once he is released, according to the court documents filed by Cyrus’ attorneys and a police detective.
Detective Rosibel Smith said in a sworn statement that Meek told officers they should shoot him in the head if he couldn’t meet Cyrus.
Smith said a police officer who interviewed 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.”
The man “suffers from delusions about Ms. Cyrus [and] believes that the singer/actress/celebrity Ms. Cyrus communicates with him through her songs and is telling him to come to see her so that they may be together,” said the documents.
This is a temporary restraining order and another hearing is scheduled for June 16 to extend the order for a further three years.
