Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has been granted a temporary restraining order against a man who tried to get into both her U.S. and U.K. homes.
The star petitioned against Nickolaos Gavrilis, and it was accepted on Friday, April 18. It orders him not to approach the actress and to stay at least 100 yards away. He must not come near her estranged husband Chris Martin and their two children, Apple and Moses.
The papers state that Gavrilis had been “stalking and harassing Petitioner on two continents, has not stopped despite warnings from police, has previously been convicted of harassment by a criminal court and presents an immediate danger that great or irreparable harm would result if an order did not issue immediately.”
Gavrilis attempted to gain access to her home in Los Angeles on April 4, according to documents obtained by E! News.
Her security director, Tony Abbott, also stated in the papers the man tried to enter her home in London in 2012. He then claimed he had a “business appointment” with the actress.
Allegedly, the same man attempted to enter the same property in 2012, but the access was denied. A hearing will be held in Los Angeles on May 12, to determine whether this restraining order will become permanent.
This year wasn’t very gentle with Gwyneth. In March 2014, she announced her split from husband of over 10 years, Chris Martin, and in April it was revealed that her lifestyle company, Goop.com, is in debt.
