Gwyneth Paltrow has been granted a temporary restraining order against an alleged stalker who has been trying to access her homes for years.

According to documents obtained by E! News, Nickolaos Gavrilis most recently attempted to enter the star’s home in Los Angeles on April 4.

Paltrow’s security director said in the legal papers that the man was previously allowed into her London residence in 2012 after misrepresenting himself and claiming to have an appointment with the actress, and made another attempt there last year.

The petition claims Gavrilis has stalked and harassed Paltrow “on two continents, has not stopped despite warnings from police, has previously been convicted of harassment by a criminal court and presents an immediate danger that great or irreparable harm would result if an order did not issue immediately.”

The temporary order of protection, granted last Friday, is on behalf of Paltrow, estranged husband Chris Martin and their two kids, requiring Gavrilis stay at least 100 yards away from the family. A hearing will be held next month to determine whether to make it permanent, reports E!.
