Sharon Stone obtains restraining order
Sharon Stone's alleged stalker has been ordered to stay away from her for five years.
The 58-year-old actress had been bombarded with letters from Phillip Barnes - who she previously got a restraining order against in 2011 - for several years, with some coming from his psychiatric unit, and a judge has now banned the man from going within 100 yards of the 'Basic Instinct' star and her children, their home, workplace, school and her vehicles.
Ordering Barnes not to harass, intimidate or have any contact with Sharon or her three sons, Roan, 16, Laird, 11, and Quinn, 10, the judge said there was enough evidence to impose the maximum five years for the restraining order, which can also be extended for an additional five years when it expires in 2021, TMZ reports.
Among one of the ramblings in his letters, Barnes wrote: "I have 11 wifes picked out and would cause about 18 kids ... you would sit at the other head of the dineing table. (sic)"
Two years ago, the man wrote to the actress asking her for cheques worth $20 billion from the Department of Treasury, a gun silencer and bags full of diamonds.
Sharon initially sought a restraining order against her alleged stalker when he was seen at the entrance of her gated Hollywood home in August 2011, claiming he had been instrumental in killing Osama bin Laden and that he had children with her.
The 'Casino' star wasn't home at the time of the incident, but he returned to her house several times and sent her another letter demanding she didn't date anyone. He was eventually arrested by Los Angeles police and Sharon obtained a restraining order.
