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.
