Katy Perry has obtained a temporary restraining order against a man she alleges in court documents “poses a credible threat” to her safety. Perry says she has “suffered significant and severe emotional and psychological distress” after a man allegedly trespassed on her property.
The protective order requires the man, William Terry, to stay at least 100 yards away from Katy, Orlando Bloom, their newborn daughter Daisy Dove Bloom and Orlando’s 9-year-old son Flynn. The man is prohibited from contacting Katy, either directly or indirectly through social media, and must not harass or threaten the singer. In the filing, Perry describes the man as a “complete stranger” who “trespassed on my property, is stalking me, and who threatened my family.” Perry stated that on Aug. 3, 2020 the man attempted to enter her property by falsely claiming to her security team that he had been invited to her home. Then a month later, on Sept. 8, the man allegedly “jumped the fence” of Katy’s Beverly Hills, Calif. home, where he was placed under citizen’s arrest. The man was then arrested for criminal trespassing but has since been released from police custody.
The temporary restraining order is in effect until Oct. 8, at which point a hearing will take place.
