'Love & Basketball' Star

Stalker Was Sleeping In My Home!!

EXCLUSIVE

0612-sanaa-lathan-01
"Love & Basketball" star Sanaa Lathan is being stalked by a man claiming to be her husband ... who was discovered sleeping in her home ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Lathan just got a restraining order against 28-year-old Shawn Caples, who was discovered dead asleep in her laundry room last Friday by contractors. 

The man -- who insisted he was Lathan's hubby -- was shooed away ... but she says he reappeared later that day.  Lathan screamed at him to "get the f*** out of here" and then called the cops when he refused to leave.

In her docs, Lathan says Caples showed up at her doorstep 3 days later ... and she hid in fear.

Caples is now behind bars after being arrested for stalking.  He's been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Lathan once he's released.

Get armed, the police or a restraining order won't do anything

She is not on love and basketball. She is an acclaimed actress. Do not put her in the mix with those reality chics.

Sanaa is a talented and very beautiful woman who deserves greater stardom. As for her stalker: I'm not big on guns, but this guy is seriously disturbed, and if he were stalking me, I would feel a lot safer if I could confront him with a gun. Not necessarily to shoot him, but certainly to impress him with the possibility. Seriously, a woman alone at home and some nut case comes into my home? Sorry, man, but you are asking for big trouble.

TMZ you need to hire me. Who ever is writing for you can't get the background straight on who's who. a few weeks back you mistaken JWoww for Lil Kim, now you have hit below the belt saying that Sanaa Lathan.... an acclaimed actress who's career dates back over 17 years ago is a cast member of the ratchet franchise Love and Hip Hop??? Oh please! Not only is it insulting to Miss Lathan, it's insulting to me...lol! I earthier you spit in my face! How dare you...Again, hire me... you have my email address...
