Jason Peyton, Jennifer Aniston Stalker, Captured

by at . Comments

NOTE: For once, this Jennifer Aniston news is actually true - and scary.

The actress has been granted a restraining order against Jason Peyton, a man arrested after prowling around her Hollywood Hills house last week.

He had a sharp object and duct tape with him at the time ... yikes.

Peyton was found on July 15, "laying-in-wait in a location he believes she frequents." Aniston's lawyer says he spent eight days trying to find her.

"Peyton is an obsessed, mentally ill, delusional stalker - with a history of violence and criminal stalking - who drove cross-country in his delusional 'mission' to locate and marry [Jen], with whom he believes he is in a relationship," court documents say.

The stalker was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold and must stay 100 yards away from her home, places of work, vehicles, employees and reps.

Peyton, who has been institutionalized before, has been ordered to take antipsychotic drugs but authorities say he stopped taking them in March.

He believes he's related to Oprah, Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez, Courteney Cox, Bill and Melinda Gates, President George Bush (both) and Donald Trump.

LAPD's Threat Management Unit is involved in the case.

Sounds serious. Here's hoping Jen finds comfort in the arms of new boyfriend Chris Gartin, or in the fact that she's going to be a mom! Again!
