Actor Kirsten Dunst has acquired a three-year restraining order against her French stalker, who now must remain at least 100 yards away from her.
Jean Christophe Prudhon - a 51-year-old French fan, who is believed to have flown to the US on multiple occasions just to sit outside the home of the Marie Antoinette actor- was issued a temporary order in December, Contactmusic reported. However, a Los Angeles judge has now ruled that Prudhon must stay at least 100 yards away from the 29-year-old actress for the next three years, TMZ.com reports.
According to legal documents, Kirsten’s mother is also protected under the order after he recently contacted her in an attempt to get to the actor.
Kirsten has previously claimed Prudhon has sent her dozens of letters which were “frightening and harassing”. He even tried calling her hundreds of times and sat outside her home on 10 separate occasions.
In one of his letters Prudhon claimed that he had sold his home in France so that he could follow the actor on a permanent basis. “This is not the right/accepted way to do but honesty and directness, I have no other way,” he wrote.
