JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE has won a permanent restraining order against a woman accused of harassing him after declaring fears for his safety in court.
The pop star was ordered to appear in a Los Angeles court on Monday to personally testify against Karen McNeil in a bid to make permanent a temporary restraining order he received in October.
Instead, Timberlake submitted a sworn document detailing his concerns for himself and his loved ones via attorney Marty Singer - and now McNeil has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from the star, his home and vehicle.
Timberlake's statement, obtained by TMZ.com, reads: "Ms. McNeil's ever-increasing, aggressive and harassing conduct are extremely distressing. I fear for my personal safety, and that of my family and friends.
"I respectfully request that the Court make an order prohibiting and restraining Ms. McNeil from coming near me, my residence, my workplaces or wherever I am."
According to Timberlake's declaration, McNeil has continued to attempt to make contact with the singer even after he received a temporary restraining order against her.
He claims she has been an unwelcome and uninvited visitor at his home. McNeil insists she's a longtime friend.
