Laurence Fishburne

Alleged Stalker

Tries to Evict Actor

Laurence Fishburne has just obtained a restraining order against a man who showed up on his doorstep on New Year's Day and demanded that the actor move out of his house.

Anthony Francis allegedly told Fishburne he owned the house and the Fishburnes were there illegally.  Laurence may have reason to worry.  According to the legal docs, cops told Fishburne Francis was released from prison on XMAS day after serving time for cyber-stalking and making criminal threats.

LAPD cops told Fishburne they got a call 2 weeks back from Francis, claiming he owned the actor's pad.

According to docs, Francis left a letter at Fishburne's home last week, which said in part, "You are to leave this house immediately.  This means all tenants are to evacuate ASAP."

The restraining order prohibits Francis from coming within 100 yards of Fishburne, his wife and daughter.  Francis also can't go near Fishburne's house.

Something tells me this guy has no idea who Laurence Fishburne is and just targeted a Black family as more susceptible to harassment like this.

Even you Harvey know if the man was released from prison he's broken his parole.

I don't think a restraining order will do much good for someone that screwed up.

Cheez, FDA and/or druggie dealers gotta find some new drugs for this whacko. Anybody who meets Fishbourne's well nourished azz and STILL wants to FW him, has taken crazy to a new level. The wacko's nads must be made out of the same material they use for atomic bombs.

Hold on, how old is the alleged stalker? And why was that deemed relevant to the Hangover director's stalking, but not this one?

There are only three types of Amercians....greedy or stupid or disturbed. Which category are you in? You win first prize if you are all three.

They need to do something about these creepy stalkers. Seriously, if someone is a stalker, odds are they are too much of a wackadoo to pay attention to a piece of paper that says stay away.
