The court grants a temporary restraining order against Paris Jackson's alleged stalker. The young starlet claims the man has been bothering her for weeks.
It Ends With Her
A Los Angeles court granted the order against 23-year-old Nicholas Stevens to the 20-year-old daughter of legendary singer Michael Jackson on Tuesday, July 3. As per the temporary restraining order, Stevens must stay away from Jackson at least until July 24.
According to court documents, Jackson and a bandmate were leaving her recording studio on June 13 when Stevens approached her. A complete stranger up until that point, the man told Jackson he had been to the studio on several occasions, even waiting for her the previous week for 15 hours straight.
Stevens refused to leave, claimed to be straight up stalking her, and even made a dark pronouncement to the young woman.
"By midnight it will all be over ... the way it ends is with her or with a shotgun," he's alleged to have told her.
On July 1, Stevens also tweeted to Jackson that he was her soulmate. As per the order granted by the judge, Lewis must stay at least 100 yards away from Jackson and has to cut any communication until a hearing later this month.
Saying A Very Sad Goodbye
Jackson has had a difficult few weeks. Her beloved grandfather, Joe Jackson, passed away from pancreatic cancer at the end of last month.
She took to Instagram in the wake of his death to post a loving tribute to him.
"Spending those last few moments with you were everything. Being able to tell you everything i needed to tell you before saying goodbye was such a blessing," she gushed.
Joe Jackson may have been a controversial figure, but as far as Paris was concerned, he was the original Jackson.
"None of us would be anywhere near where we're at if it weren't for you. you are the strongest man i know. your life's work will go down in history, as will you, to be known as one of the greatest patriarchs to ever live," she wrote.
Paris shared her goodbye message to the 89-year-old former music manager, who fathered 11 children over the course of his life, with a sweet photo showing her holding his hand in the final moments of his life. She also requested him to keep his promise to visit her after his death.
Joe Jackson has had a series of serious health problems over the years. He recovered from a minor stroke at his Vegas home back in 2012. He suffered another stroke a few years later, however, causing daughter Janet Jackson to put rehearsals for her world tour on hold.
Jackson was hospitalized again in May 2016 with a high fever, and once more in June 2017 following a car accident.
