Billie Eilish Granted Restraining Order Against Man Who Sent Death Threats


Billie Eilish has been granted a restraining order after a man camped out near her home and sent her a letter with a death threat:

The Grammy-winning singer, 19, alleges the man, John Matthews Hearle, 23, has camped outside a school across the street from her house, according to court documents obtained by NBC News. Eilish said that Hearle has frequently watched her enter and exit her home while saying indiscernible things in a “low and disturbing voice,” the court document said.

“I no longer feel safe going outside my home and enjoying basic physical exercise in my neighborhood, as he could attempt to approach and hurt me,” Eilish said in her request for the protective order. “Every time I see him I just want to scream.”

According to Eilish's statement, Hearle frequently made disconcerting gestures to come toward him. At one point, Hearle made a “throat slitting gesture” while Eilish was backing her car into the driveway, Eilish said, according to the document.

In another incident, Hearle allegedly sent a letter to Eilish, writing: “You can’t get what you want, unless what you want is to die for me.”

“You will die. What are you dying for?” the letter said.

Wow. Scary. You can read more below:
