Bill Nye the Science Guy

Locked in $57,000 Battle

with Stalker Ex-Girlfriend

2/27/2012 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bill Nye the Science Guy is dragging his ex-girlfriend back to court
Bill Nye the Science Guy is dragging his ex-girlfriend back to court -- claiming she forced him to rack up $57,000 in attorney's fees by acting like a crazy stalker ... and is now refusing to pay the bill.

According to the docs, it all started back in 2006 after the couple broke up -- Bill claims his ex Blair Tindall stole several expensive items from his house, including his laptop, which she then used to send defamatory emails impersonating him. Bill claims she also poured herbicide on his rose bushes.

TMZ broke the story back in 2007 ... Bill sought out a protective order as a result -- and obtained a 6-year injunction against her a few months later, requiring her to stay 100 yards away from him.

According to the new docs, Tindall violated that order in 2009 -- so he went back to court to enforce it ... and racked up a $57,000 legal bill in the process. The court then ordered Blair to cover the damage.

Bill claims she hasn't forked over a penny since -- so now, he's dragging her back to court to get his money.

Blair tells TMZ ... "Bill Nye was the love of my life. I'm surprised he has taken this action against me.  I have no funds to pay him, and he is a very wealthy man, so I'm not sure where this is coming from."

He's doing because you terrorized him and cost him a lot of money because you're a crazy nutjob? Ya think that may have had something to do with it?

Hey Bill, there's no science involved in the old advice of "Don't stick your **** in crazy.." Good luck to you in choosing your next woman.

Sounds more like harassment from Nye who doubles as a bill collector. Something has been very fishy about this whole thing from the judge....and what's the background against a judge ordering a six year restraining order. This smacks more like cronyism than science. See
Biased and Weird Judges.

Doesn't know where it's coming from? Seems perfectly clear to me. Nutjob stalks, breaks restraining order, and refuses to cough up the court ordered attorney fee's. And she doesn't have the funds? How about getting a JOB? Funny those things called JOBS, they pay actual MONEY, and then you get to pay your bills. All clear and concise you whackjob.

Bill, get a default judgement her and start garnishing her bank accounts. If she doesn't have the money in her accounts, the Marshal's service will accompany you to her residence and help you confiscate property to cover her debt. I am against stalking and people who don't pay their debt. Do it, Bill!!

Lets make this a learning experience. How far would $57,000 of $1 dollar bills stretch around the earth, both end to end and side to side. Bill?

"Bill Nye was the love of my life...so I'm not sure where this is coming from." - Spoken like a true whack-job. You're not sure? Maybe it's because the judge ordered you to pay his legal fees and you have not.

Hello average white man out there in TMZ land???

White women are all universally crazy. It's just a matter of time before it is YOUR TURN.

Plan accordingly...
