With great fame comes stalkers apparently.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly obtained a restraining order against a Californian man, Pradeep Manukonda. The judge has ordered the man to stay at least 300 yards away from Zuckerberg, his sister Randi and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan pending a hearing later this month.

According to the papers filed, Manukonda has attempted to “follow, surveil and contact Mr. Zuckerberg using language threatening his personal safety.” So concerneed is Zuckerberg that he reportedly fears for the safety of his long time girlfriend Priscilla and his sister Randi Zuckerberg.

TMZ reports that Pradeep had gone to several Facebook offices in Palo Alto attempting to contact Mark to ask for money as well as sending multiple letters to both him and his sister. One of the many letters sent to Mark and Randi can be seen below.
