Max Ehrich, who played Fenmore Baldwin on The Young and the Restless, has gone into hiding.
The actor says he’s fearing for his personal safety in light of a stalking incident and has hired a private bodyguard.
Ehrich, who received two Daytime Emmy nominations for his work on Y&R, posted on social media recently, updating his followers that he’s “safe & secure. I appreciate the messages. Don’t take your safety for granted. There really are some sick people out there. Stay safe x.”
TMZ posted a story in which a source close to Ehrich says that the trouble began when Ehrich went to look at a property and the realtor allegedly became infatuated with the handsome actor.
After advances were rebuffed, the realtor, again allegedly, pulled a gun on Ehrich. The TMZ report says it’s not clear what kind of gun it was and may have been a pellet gun.
Now, Ehrich is posting a photo of himself with a bodyguard. The TMZ report adds that the police are now actively investigating the case.
