John Cusack files restraining order against Los Angeles woman
UPI News Service, 06/27/2006
John Cusack filed for a temporary restraining order Friday against a Los Angeles woman whom he claims has been showing "unusual interest" in him.
Emily Leatherman, 32, is accused of "stalking, throwing long letters of interest over (his) fence in bags with rocks and screwdrivers inside, making unannounced visits to offices of people (he works) with in an attempt to meet with (him) and listing (his) address as her own during a recent address," E! Online reported Tuesday.
"Mail addressed to her has been arriving at my residence without my permission," Cusack stated. "I have never met this person." The actor wrote that Leatherman has not committed or threatened any violence against him, but has caused emotional distress to him and vowed to hurt herself if he did not agree to meet with her.
Cusack requested that she be forced to stay at least 500 feet away from his home, workplace and car.
