George Clooney has been granted a restraining order against a man who reportedly made threats against him and his wife Amal. Lawyers for the Hail Caesar! star, 55, filed the petition with the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles on Monday.
According to editors at TMZ.com the order stated Mark Bibbee, also 55, had harassed George by sending a 189 page tranche of documents to his management team via email, documents which included threats aimed at the actor and his human rights lawyer wife, 38, to his management team.
The gossip site also reports the documents claim the alleged harasser has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and possible schizophrenia.
A judge presiding over Monday’s court hearing accepted Clooney’s lawyers’ arguments and granted the five-year restraining order requiring the army veteran, who is currently residing in a Los Angeles psychiatric hospital, to stay at least 100 yards away from George and his wife and cease contacting his team.
Any breach of the order any time before it expires on 11 July 2021 can result in a $1,000 (£751) fine and up to one year in jail. George and Amal were not in Los Angeles for the hearing as they are currently holidaying at their home beside Lake Como in Italy.
