Hilary Duff must be in the forgiving, holiday mood.

Despite a difficult break-up with Joel Madden, the pair has found common ground in letting one dude who stalked them skate free from a restraining order.

TMZ obtained documents filed Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court by the star duo's lawyers, which requests a dismissal of the restraining orders against celebrity photographer David Joseph Klein.

In October, Duff and Madden filed temporary restraining orders against Klein and his roommate Maksim Miakovsky, an 18-year-old Russian emigre.

The former couple feared for their safety and requested that a judge order the alleged stalkers to stay at least 100 yards away from Duff, her sister Haylie, Madden and his twin brother Benji.

Of course, now that Madden is dating Nicole Richie, future stalkers will probably be glad to stay away, lest they wish to get run over by a pill-popping bad driver.

While we were focusing on a possible new look for Hilary Duff, policemen were patrolling the streets, on the lookout for her supposed stalker.

It paid off. The 18-year-old who allegedly threatened to kill one of our favorite young singers has been arrested.

Some Duff Luck

Manhattan Beach cops arrested Maksim Miakovsky, an 18-year-old Russian emigre, at a Residence Inn last week. He was booked on charges of making criminal threats and stalking.

There was no word on whether or not a bitter Lindsay Lohan hired the thug out of jealousy of Duff's clean reputation.

TMZ first reported last month that Duff and her boyfriend, Joel Madden, were terrified that Miakovsky would cause them hard. Duff and Madden asked for a restraining order, alleging that Miakovsky "has stated his intention of 'removing' his 'enemies' (i.e., those who prevent him from being with her), has stated his intention of purchasing a weapon, and has threatened to kill himself and to engage in dramatic actions to get her attention."

Pretty much makes Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes appear sane.

Sources said a private investigator from Sunset Protective Services contacted Miakovsky at the Residence Inn and Miakovsky stated his intention of killing Duff on Sunday at an event she was scheduled to attend.

According to legal papers filed by Duff, Miakovsky came to the U.S. "for the sole purpose of meeting and becoming romantically involved with Ms. Duff."

Miakovsky is currently being held on $200,000 bail at the Manhattan Beach jail. He's scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday. We hope he either goes to jail for a long time or is forced to stalk Stavros Niarchos from now on.

Thank goodness. We haven't had a good celebrity stalking story in weeks.

Hilary Duff is coming through, however. The actress/singer claims she fears for her life, alleging she and her boyfriend are being stalked by two men - one a paparazzi and the other a homeless man.

Duff a Cat-lover

TMZ has obtained court documents in which Duff and Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden state a 19-year-old Russian emigre came to the United States "for the sole purpose of meeting and becoming romantically involved with Ms. Duff."

That couldn't have been the only reason. Come on, he had no interest in buying the Screech sex tape?!?

The court documents state the man, whose first name is Max, "admitted to being 'obsessed' with her, has stated his intention of 'removing' his 'enemies' (i.e., those who prevent him from being with her), has stated his intention of purchasing a weapon, and has threatened to kill himself and to engage in dramatic actions to get her attention."

That's actually is frightening; even more so than every single Mary-Kate Olsen picture.

According to the documents, Max "has stated his belief that Hilary is in love with him and that Joel Madden stands in their way."

But there's also David Joseph Klein, a 50-year-old celebrity photographer who is roommates with Max and is also named as a threat.

The documents state: "Over the past six weeks, the defendants have engaged in an accelerated effort to make contact with Hilary, including visits to her neighborhood, to her mother's home, to her boyfriend's neighborhood ... to Mr. Madden's concert venue, and direct calls to Hilary's manager."

Wow. That's some serious stalking. Osama bin Laden could learn a thing or two from this nut case.
