An obsessed fan took Internet stalking to a whole new level and now he’s been issued a restraining order and needs to stay away from Days of Our Lives sweetheart, Alison Sweeney.
According to TMZ, a judge ordered John Christopher LuVisi to stay 1,000 feet away from the actress. He also must keep that far from her house, her car, any work location, and her kids’ school.
TMZ states legal documents claim LuVisi has been stalking Sweeney from about 15 different social media accounts for years, but his posts have gotten increasingly frightening over the last nine months.
He allegedly tried extorting money from the actress, saying he had compromising pictures of her he would send her husband if she didn’t pay up.
Sweeney attempted blocking LuVisi, but he would just find a way around it and start a brand-new account. TMZ claims the man’s wife says he was the victim of a catfish hacking scam and that he had an online affair with someone he thought was the actress.
