'Too Close For Comfort' Star

EXCLUSIVE

0821_getty_lydia_cornell"Too Close For Comfort" star Lydia Cornell wants a restraining order stat, claiming a "psychotic" fan who defrauded her into thinking he was a war hero ... is now threatening to shoot her and "bash her face in" -- this according to new court docs.

The 59-year-old actress filed docs in Pasadena Superior Court, claiming a "psychopath" named Richard Loland Lewis befriended her by lying about being a "secret JAG agent" and "federal criminal attorney" who could help with her divorce proceedings from her ex.

But according to Cornell, the situation turned ugly on June 20th when she rejected Lewis' romantic advances.

Cornell claims Lewis felt spurned -- then angrily stole her laptop and sent her hate mail. Cornell says Lewis also made vicious phone calls in which he threatened to "bash her face in."

Not only that ... she says Lewis posted threats online asking people to shoot her "the way Rebecca Shaeffer was shot" -- and now, she fears for her life.

Cornell is asking the court to keep Lewis away from her and her minor son at all times.

It may be time to move to an unreported address, and make sure nobody is following you when you go home. Be safe. These whackos are the children and grandchildren of the cocaine generation and the psychedelic 60's drugs. You look smashing for your age, by the way!

Case No. GC047909 for Corruption, Internet fraud/Hacking and invasion of privacy.

Cornell who's real last name is Korniloff posted on her Facebook account she has imposter names on facebook to hurt people. She is also accused of getting money form men to pay her bills. Also in the Do***ents it states that Cornell went from plaintiff to defendant in the case as the Private Attorney General in the case found that she was committing crimes and fraud, Also in Sepember 13th 2012 Cornell was in court where her Attorney dropped her as a client in the case, and Cornell asked the court to drop her as a plaintiff. As such Cornell has made the claims above with no evidence of any arrest, or do***ents against this man. No police report was made as to him bashing her face in. Cornell claims to be a Christain but the do***ents filed in Pasadena Court house show a different Lydia Cornell. You be the judge, and read the supplement filed in the case.
