The 35-year-old hitmaker filed a restraining order against a man named William Terry after he trespassed on her property. According to Perry, the stalker is believed to be homeless and living in a silver Buick sedan. She reported that, on September 8, he jumped her backyard fence in the Beverly Hills area while she was with her fiancé, Orlando Bloom, and their newborn daughter.
The couple’s security guards asked the man to leave, but he refused, telling them he wanted to enter their home. The guards captured him before he could do any harm and placed him under citizen’s arrest until he was arrested for criminal trespass by the police.
Perry described the stalker as “a complete stranger who trespassed on my property, is stalking me and who threatened my family.”
According to The Sun, Terry did not just trespass on the “Firework” artist’s property, he also posted menacing tweets on social media site Twitter in which he threatened to break Bloom’s neck. Perry claimed the man wrote inappropriate messages about her and posted them to the platform as well.
“Terry has also repeatedly sent me/posted numerous disgusting messages on Twitter, many of a graphic sexual nature.”
Following the arrest, Terry left a post in which he commented on the incident and referred to the popstar as his “wife,” in addition to a video of the court documents that Perry filed. In the clip, he zoomed in on her signature.
“Security guard trying to stop me from seeing my wife and had a gun and all but I wasn’t going down without a fight.”
In her application for the protective document, the singer wrote she is living in fear that Terry may have access to weapons. She added she was in immediate fear for not just her own safety, but that of her partner, her daughter, family, and friends.
The court granted the restraining order and set a hearing for October 8, when the judge will decide whether or not it will become permanent. In the meantime, Terry was ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Perry and her family until the hearing.
Perry gave birth to her daughter Daisy Dove last month, according to The Inquisitr. She is the “Roar” singer’s first child with Bloom, although the actor has a 9-year-old son, Flynn, with ex Miranda Kerr.
