Gwen Stefani granted extended restraining order against fan

Gwen Stefani has been granted a three-year restraining order against an obsessed fan who can't stay away.

Richard Portnoy showed up at the office of the rocker's acupuncturist and also at her home, with gifts.


In a letter he wrote to the No Doubt star, Portnoy urged her to consider a life with him.


He even confronted Stefani's father during one of his visits to the house the singer shares with her husband, Bush star Gavin Rossdale, according to court documents, and told him he had seen photos of Stefani appearing to trip and would not be able to go on living if his daughter injured herself.


Stefani’s father also secured a stay-away order against Portnoy last month (Mar15), after he allegedly showed up at his home.
