Ashley Benson Files Restraining Order Against Former Warner Bros. Security Guard
We Pretty Little Liars fans love us some creepy characters and deadly mystery, but only when it’s on-screen! Poor Ashley Benson got a scary brush with some real A-level stuff, according to new court documents dug up by TMZ.
The legal paperwork is all about a temporary restraining order the 24-year-old star filed against 49-year-old James Gorton, Jr. The ex-security guard was recently fired from his gig on the Warner Bros. lot (aka where PLL shoots) after saying some questionable things about his “relationship” with Ashley.
The way TMZ tells it, James wanted a sexual relationship with Ash because “that’s just the way God wanted it.” It was a higher power who, James insists, told him to pursue something with the PLL actress. He didn’t keep the news to himself, either. Studio security officials reportedly got wind of what James was saying, including a “special connection” TMZ says James felt after Ashley supposedly glanced his way one time.
Although he’s no longer employed where Ash is, she went the extra step and got a temporary restraining order against him as of June 18. Now he has to stay at least 100 yards away — which still seems awfully close to us.
