Jenny from the Block is blocking a stalker with a violent past. The pop star filed legal documents on January 4 saying a man named Timothy McLanahan followed her from Los Angeles to Vegas, attended her concert, and sent unwanted mail and flowers.

All of that wouldn’t seem so scary if Timothy hadn’t already been arrested for trespassing on her L.A. property — and her bodyguards say he’s a transient with a history of arrests for threats and firearm violations, TMZ says.

Luckily for her, a judge granted her a temporary restraining order against Timothy, so now he has to stay 100 yards away from her and her children.

An 18-year-old female fan waited outside the Biebs’ house for around 12 hours to get a photo with him, TMZ reported last year. Justin’s security team called the cops, who couldn’t do anything because the 18-year-old was parked on a public street.

When JB got home, he put in a second call to the cops, and together they confronted the admirer. She left without a photo, and we’re sure he's not “Sorry” about it.

Jersey Shore star Pauly D has had not one, but two stalkers since becoming a household name via the hit MTV reality show. Pauly’s most recent “stalker” was a super-fan named Vanessa who just always happened to show up where Pauly and his fellow guidos and guidettes were hanging out. However, he wasn’t the only object of Vanessa’s, er, affection — turns out she has quite the celeb fetish!

The original Jersey stalker was an Israeli girl named Danielle who was featured in Seasons 1 and 3 of Jersey Shore. After constantly showing up on the boardwalk and even gifting Pauly D a custom-made shirt that read “I Love Jewish Girls,” Danielle became so intrusive that Pauly had to disconnect the duck phone just to avoid her calls. Talk about creepy!

The queen of pop is one of the most recognizable figures in the world, and in the early ’90s Madonna was the victim of an uber-uncomfortable stalker named Robert Dewey Hoskins.

Hoskins stalked Madonna all over California and repeatedly scaled the fence of her home. One particularly alarming report alleges that he even threatened to cut the singer from “ear to ear” if she didn’t marry him.

He was arrested in 1995 and served a 10-year prison sentence for stalking the Material Girl before being sent to a Southern California mental hospital. After somehow escaping, he was found and arrested a week later.

Back in early 2012, when she was still playing New York “It” girl Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip GirlBlake Lively had to deal with a real-life stalker who was far more frightening than any blast Gossip Girl ever sent out.

Sergei Mifle, a crazed fan, started showing up on the GG set claiming to have a “metaphysical connection” with the actress. When he couldn’t get close enough to Blake, he began harassing her mother, Elaine.

Thankfully, following months of unwanted contact, Blake was granted an emergency restraining order, and Sergei was ordered to stay 100 yards away from the actress, her home, and the Gossip Girl set for three years.

Prudhon also sent dozens of letters to Kirsten, called her hundreds of times, and even admitted to waiting in his car outside her home on no fewer than 10 occasions.

Luckily, Kirsten was granted a protection order, and Prudhon was ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from her and her mother.

Actress and singer Selena Gomez has legions of devoted fans, but she also has a pretty serious stalker.

Thomas Brodnicki was so infatuated with Ms. Gomez that he reportedly had conversations with God about killing her. In 2011 the starlet applied for a permanent restraining order against the troubled man, and though the judge declined to do so until Brodnicki appeared in court, the man himself acknowledged that he was a danger to the singer.

Brodnicki stated in a declaration supporting Selena’s restraining order, “I do not wish to object to the restraining order against me because I know it is the only thing that will make me stay away from Selena.”
