Jackson Seeks Protection From
March 7, 2005
Janet Jackson revealed
Monday that she's fearful for her life. Shocking
court papers reveal Janet has an alleged stalker
who's been tormenting her for nearly a decade.
Janet says he even attempted to hunt her down
during her appearance last year on "Saturday
"Celebrity Justice" Executive Producer
Harvey Levin says Robert Gardner of Baton Rouge,
Louisiana, has made the pop diva's life a nightmare.
"He tried to crash a dress rehearsal of 'Saturday
Night Live,'" Levin revealed. "He was
found to have a pair of scissors, a box-cutter
and a multi-functional knife."
Jackson is asking a Los Angeles judge for an emergency
restraining order against Gardner, claiming he
threatened to come see her again last week.
The singer says Gardner's attempts to meet her
and his disturbing sexual references in letters
and faxes have her living in fear. "It is
only a matter of time until he has the opportunity
to harm me," Jackson alleged.
A judge will decide on March 17th whether or not
to issue the restraining order.
