Mark Zuckerberg, the billionaire Facebook founder has managed to get a restraining order against a man who has been stalking him and his family.
Zuckerberg got the court ordered ban against 31 year old Pradeep Manukonda after a verbal warning from the police failed to stop the man following Zuckerberg and waiting outside his house. The man also tried to contact Zuckerberg’s sister Randi and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan.
Manukonda has been hassling the worlds youngest billionaire for money via emails and hand written letters. In one contact he said “Please help me, then I am ready to die for you.” Oh boy, not exactly the right way to get someone’s attention.
TMZ.com also claim that Manukonda’s mother is seriously ill with little time left to live and has asked Zuckerberg for money to help her treatment.
He has now been ordered to stay 300 yards away from Zuckerberg and his family until a hearing can be held later this month.
