Billie Eilish takes out a restraining order on an obsessive 24-year-old fan
Billie Eilish has been granted a restraining order against a 24-year-old man named Prenell Rousseau who, according to the order, reportedly visited her house and attempted to gain entry on numerous occasions over the last week.
According to a report from TMZ, Eilish and her family have had to get him off their premises on multiple occasions since he began to stalk them a week ago and went on to show up a further six times.
Rousseau allegedly tried to gain access to their home, he then rang the doorbell, spoke with Eilish’s father and security guards, and even took a nap outside the house. After talking to Eilish’s father through the intercom last week in an attempt to know if Eilish was inside the premises, the 24-year-old then left but reappeared only a few hours later.
Eilish has commented on the scary situation, saying: “While we waited for security, Mr. Rousseau 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.”
With help from law firm McPherson LLP, Eilish began work on filing a restraining order against Rousseau with a judge now granting the temporary order, stating that Rousseau cannot come within 200 yards of Eilish or her family. A follow-up hearing is scheduled to take place on June 1st.
