Gwen Stefani’s obsessed fan threatened to kill himself after she fell over.
The No Doubt star recently secured a three-year protection order from Richard Portnoy, and testimony claimed he went to her house after seeing pictures of her tripping, saw her dad Dennis Stefani and told him he didn’t know if he could keep living if she had hurt herself.
Richard — who lives in a gated community and drives a number of luxury cars, including a Porsche and a Mercedes — showed up at Gwen’s and husband Gavin Rossdale’s house a number of times with flowers, candy, cards and letters. According to TMZ, one of the letters detailed how the obsessed fan felt that Gwen was unhappy in her life and he would be able to change it for her.
Dennis applied for a restraining order last month and his documents claimed Richard has gained access to information about where his daughter has medical treatments and attempted to contact her on March 16. It also says Richard has also been to both his and Gwen’s house three times since February.
The restraining order means Richard isn’t allowed any contact with Gwen, Gavin, their three children — Kingston, eight, Zuma, six, and 12-month-old Apollo — as well as Dennis and his wife Patricia. He must also stay 100 yards away from the family.
Dennis filed the documents because he and Patricia were worried Richard might turn up at their home, or Gwen’s, again.
