JustinHeavy metal band Metallica and Justin Timberlake are revealed to have been stalked by the same woman. Karen McNeil, who was issued a restraining order in March this year for stalking the rockers, was arrested from Timberlake’s property last week after she showed up at his home and refused to leave, reports the Daily Express.


Timberlake, 28, was then granted a restraining order against McNeil following her release from hospital after she underwent a psychiatric evaluation.

McNeil had in March been ordered to stay at least 150 yards away from Lars Ulrich and the rest of Metallica after the drummer requested a restraining order from the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

It has also emerged that Timberlake and the band aren’t the first to have been forced to take action against McNeil - she was also banned from getting close to Guns ‘N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose in 1995.
