Billie Eilish Files Restraining Order Against Fan Who Kept Turning Up At Her House
Singer Billie Eilish has filed a temporary restraining order against a fan who kept turning up at her house.
The man asked if he had found Billie Eilish's home and the 18-year-old's dad told him he had the wrong place and asked him to leave.
The young fan did leave, however it wasn't long until he was back.
The restraining order states: "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."
Billie alleged the man turned up to her home seven times in a week and said he wasn't wearing a face mask or gloves when he touched the door knob.
The judge granted the temporary restraining order and a hearing date has been set for June 1. As a result, the fan will have to stay 200 yards away from Billie, her parents, her home, and cease all attempts to contact them.
The Grammy Award-winning artist has had a difficult time with fans since her meteoric rise to fame.

She had to post on social media about a scam involving someone pretending to be her on Snapchat.
She wrote on her verified Instagram account: "Some people are pretending to be me on Snapchat. I do not use Snapchat to talk anyone.
"If you think you are talking to me, it is not me, I promise you. No matter what they say to convince you... on my entire family's life, I am not talking to you through Snapchat. It is not me. I'm sorry to those who have been scammed."
Earlier this year, she pleaded with YouTubers to stop dressing as her and going out in public to film content.
In a screenshot she shared online, fans could see she had carried out a simple search for 'Pretending to be Billie Eilish' into YouTube and found a whole host of clips, with titles such as 'INSANE BILLIE EILISH TRANSFORMATION *SHUT DOWN MALL*', 'I Pretended to be Billie Eilish *GONE WRONG*' and even 'I MET BILLIE EILISH AT THE MALL (SHE WAS SO RUDE)'.
Sharing a screen-grab from one, she wrote: "Please stop doing this s***.
"It is not safe for you and it is mean to the people who don't know any better you make me look bad."
She then ended her plea with a sly dig at one of those pretending to be her, sharing a photo of one of her lookalikes and posting: "Also sooo disrespectful that you'd go out pretending to be me wearing THIS," alongside two crying-with-laughter emojis.
