Judge grants restraining order sought by DiCaprio
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Leonardo DiCaprio has been granted a temporary restraining against a woman he said claims to be his wife and carrying his baby.
Court records show Superior Court Judge Carol Boas Goodson granted the order Wednesday against Livia Bistriceanu, 41, of Chicago.
“Given this obsessive and harassing behavior, I am frightened of Ms. Bistriceanu and feel that my personal safety, and the personal safety of those around me, is in jeopardy,” DiCaprio wrote in a sworn declaration.
An e-mail message sent Friday to Bistriceanu seeking comment was not immediately returned.
DiCaprio’s request included statements from the actor and his security team claiming Bistriceanu had traveled from Chicago to Los Angeles at least twice to try to meet DiCaprio at his home and business office. She refused to leave the properties and acted aggressively, the court filings state.
The Academy Award-nominated actor wrote that she “has evidenced a willingness to make physical contact with me regardless of the consequences.”
Bistriceanu has been placed on a psychological hold twice, according to the documents.
On Thursday, another woman was ordered to stand trial on a charge of slashing DiCaprio’s face with a piece of glass during a party in 2005.
Aretha Wilson pleaded not guilty to assault with a deadly weapon after being returned to Los Angeles from her native Canada.
DiCaprio suffered injuries to his face and neck.
