Our counterparts at TMZ have learned that actor Jeff Goldblum has filed a restraining order against a 44-year-old woman, claiming that she has shown up to his house "unannounced and uninvited 20 times in the past month and over 50 times in the last three months."
In court documents regarding the stalking, filed yesterday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Goldblum claims a woman has:
"Sent harassing and threatening letters, stalked me at various locations, physically attacked my employee and accosted me."
No word on whether the alleged stalker is friends with Naomi Campbell.
According to the documents, Linda Ransom (who, we have to say, has a great name for a crazy stalker) met Goldblum at an acting school in L.A. where Goldblum teaches.
She then began showing up at various locations where he performed with his jazz band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.
In a statement included in the court documents, Ransom offered the explanation that she was just trying to get Goldblum to "support my efforts to complete my research and screenplay as accurate [sic] as possible."
Riiight. That's what we told the cops before Kristin Cavallari got a restraining order on us. We know from experience, Linda, that you've gotta do a lot better than that.
This just goes to show that it's not just the beautiful young starlets like Hilary Duff who have to deal with stalking. Established, but lower-profile acting stars like Goldblum and Drake Hogestyn have to cope with wackos too.
