Hilary Duff and her boyfriend, Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden, sought restraining orders Thursday Oct 12, 2006.
These days are tough for Hilary Duff to pass. The actress claims she is fearing for her life, alleging in a court documents she and boyfriend, Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden, are being stalked by two men, one a paparazzi and the other a homeless man.
Papers filed Thursday Oct 12th in Los Angeles Superior Court stated that a 19-year-old Russian emigre named Max "Doe" came to the United States "for the sole purpose of meeting and becoming romantically involved with Ms. Duff." The man "admitted to being 'obsessed' with her, has stated his intention of 'removing' his 'enemies' (i.e. those who prevent him from being with her)."
Furthermore, the court documents stated that Max has also revealed "his intention of purchasing a weapon, and has threatened to kill himself and to engage in dramatic actions to get her attention", while stated his belief that "Hilary is in love with him and that Joel Madden stands in their way".
Duff and Madden additionally also named Max's roommate, 50-year-old David Joseph Klein, as another suspect, claiming him as the one who passed Max's foreboding messages along to Duff. All in all, the celebrity couple is seeking restraining orders against the two men, while at the same time also seeking at least 100 yards worth of protection for Duff's sister, Haylie Duff, and mom, Susan Duff, and Madden's twin brother and band mate, Benji Madden.
