  • Billie Eilish has been granted a permanent restraining order against an obsessed fan.

  • The order prevents the fan from contacting Billie or her family, and from coming with in 100 yards of them.

Billie Eilish has reportedly had to take out a permanent restraining order against a fan who is allegedly obsessed with her. According to TMZ, the singer is getting a "long-term court-ordered protection" against the fan, who wouldn't stop showing up uninvited at her house.

The restraining order will last for the next three years, and was granted on Thursday June 18, 2020. While Billie and her legal team were hoping for a 5-year order, it can be extended if deemed necessary by a judge. Either way, the current order prevents the fan from contacting Billie, coming within 100 yards of her (or her parents), assaulting or harassing her, and coming near her workplace.

According to TMZ, Billie first filed legal documents in early May, saying that the showed up at her home without a mask and asked her father if she lived there. Billie said he returned later that night and was exhibiting "erratic behavior."

"While we waited for security, [the fan] remained on our porch, sat down and began to read a book, while also continuing to engage in a periodic monologue. My father repeatedly asked him to leave, but he refused..."

Ugh, this sounds like a stressful situation—here's to hoping the restraining order is effective.
