America’s Next Top Model: Tyra Banks Seeks Restraining Order Against Stalker

October 22, 2010 09:00 AM by Allyson Wells


America’s Next Top Model host and judge Tyra Banks is dealing with a very scary situation.  This week, she was back in court to file a restraining order against a man who has been stalking her and her family for the past four years.  Tyra is asking for Williams to stay at least 100 yards away from her and her family.  It has been a rough week for the star, who is also being sued by the mother of a teen who appeared on her talk show without her consent .

TMZ reports that Tyra has requested the restraining order against 39-year-old Marten Williams, Jr and claims he has “targeted and harassed and stalked” Tyra and her family since 2006.  In the documents that she filed, Tyra claims the man has a history of mental illness and that he believes he killed George Bush Jr. and that Michael Jackson is alive and living in Long Beach.

In addition to his mental instability, Tyra revealed the grueling details of her ordeal and stated that the man has left “several ominous frightening letters and items at her Beverly Hills home, including his prescription medication, L.A. County jail wristbands and note referencing a wedding ceremony set for 1/08/11.”  The documents were filed by lawyer Evan Spiegel and Tyra stated, “I am in fear from Mr. Williams for my personal safety and that of those around me, including my family and employees.”

Apparently, Williams was already arrested earlier this month for trespassing on Tyra’s property.  He told cops he was bringing Tyra “offerings.”  While he was placed on a psychiatric hold, Tyra’s people believe he may have already been released.

The order was granted to Tyra Banks and her family pending a hearing October, 28th.
