Billie Eilish granted restraining order against ‘stalker’ – Music News

Billie Eilish has reportedly been granted a five-year civil harassment restraining order against John Matthews Hearle.

The Bad Guy star filed for protection from the man in February, claiming that she feels anxious every time she comes home and fears for her safety after Hearle sent her disturbing letters and started camping on the grounds of a school across the street from her house.

“I no longer feel safe going outside my home and enjoying basic physical exercise in my neighbourhood, as he could attempt to approach and hurt me,” Billie stated in her request for the restraining order.

One note Hearle allegedly sent Eilish read: “You can’t get what you want, unless what you want is to die for me … You will know that soon the water will rise, and you might very well die … You will die.”

Billie had asked for the court to put an order in place keeping Hearle at least 200 yards away from her and her parents Maggie Baird and Patrick O’Connell, with whom she lives.
