He famously stuck his finger in the peanut butter many years ago as a cast member on Real World: San Francisco, but now David Rainey is in serious trouble.
The man best known as “Puck” kicked off his stint in prison this month, following a No Contest plea in April to charges of stalking.
TMZ reports that Rainey committed the crime on February 22, though details behind it are unclear at the moment.
He was sentenced to over a year in prison, however, which implies a court order violation of some kind.
Rainey turned himself in to the Wasco State Prison on November 8 and wasMore >
The impending Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce apparently has the actress feeling uneasy and convinced the Church of Scientology now views her as a threat.
As such, Holmes believes the church put a team on her tail.
Katie reportedly believes that in recent weeks, as discord between herself and Tom grew and they began living apart – even while both were in New York City in mid-June – Scientology higher-ups have been following her every move.
It’s unclear if this is in fact the case, but Scientology has been linked to such activity for years, and sources say “mysterious” men haveMore >
Already squaring off against ex-wife Tameka Foster in court, Usher appears to be facing a new problem with a new woman.
The artist has obtained a temporary restraining order against Darshelle Jones-Rakestraw, claiming she’s living in a dream world where Usher is her husband.
In court documents, Usher alleges that Darshelle appeared at his home in Georgia, pounding on the front door until police were called to the property. She then left the area, only to return the next day and tell cops that she was married to Usher and simply misplaced her keys. At this time, Darshelle wasMore >
While Justin Bieber fights off questions about Mariah Yeater, his unlikely 30-second-stand/baby mama, the singer’s actual girlfriend was in court this week, dealing with a far more serious problem.
Gomez had her restraining order extended today against Thomas Brodnicki, the nut job in custody on federal stalking charges for making repeated threats against the singer.
As part of this morning’s hearing, Detective Jose Viramontes swore in a declaration that he interviewed Brodnicki, and the man “reiterated that he had many conversations with God about killing Ms. Gomez.” In conclusion,More >
Former political figure and current professional celebrity Sarah Palin is asking an Alaska judge to extend the restraining orders against her two stalkers.
Shawn and Craig Christy, a father and son from Pennsylvania, were jailed in Alaska back in August for threatening to kill Sarah, her family and friends.
Sarah Palin had obtained restraining orders against the men, but they will expire in November. Thus her formal request to extend the order into 2012.
For now, she has nothing to worry about. Craig and Shawn Christy are still awaiting trial and will remain behind bars until a court dateMore >
After Jasmine Villegas was spotted kissing Justin Bieber, she received a number of threats that, we’d like to think, were mostly in jest. Sadly, the same cannot be said for Steven Cintron, a 33-year old man who allegedly offered someone $5,000 to murder the young singer.
Villegas was granted a restraining order against Cintron this week, following documents that proved he sent her thousands of messages between 2006 and 2009. Testified the 17-year old:
“In a couple of the videos, he has appeared holding deadly weapons, i.e. a gun, machete knives stating that he was going to find me, rapeMore >
Halle Berry called 911 twice this weekend, both times because a suspicious man was spotted on her property.
The first incident took place on Saturday, as police arrived at Berry’s Los Angeles home after someone leaped over her home’s protective wall and was lurking in the front yard. Guests ran out to confront him, but the intruder fled.
A similar incident developed yesterday. Berry was actually at her kitchen window and spotted a man just staring at her, holding a book. Once again, though, the unwanted man was gone by the time cops – and even a helicopter! – answered Berry’s call.
Former White House pest and Bravo reality star Michaele Salahi claims that someone’s been stalking her and making death threats in recent weeks.
Her husband, Tareq Salahi, even placed a frantic 911 call for her protection.
Maybe the stalker just wanted to see Michaele Salahi in Playboy and is pissed that this is no longer in the cards? We kid. Although you never know.
The Salahis say that the threat-maker called the Sheriff’s Dept. in Fauquier County, Va., falsely claiming Tareq broke into a winery co-owned by Tareq’s family.
Deputies tell us they found no evidence of a break-in, but wereMore >
Musa Danasabe Ibrahim gets an A for effort, but an F for morality.
This 26-year old was arrested around 4 a.m. yesterday for trying to stalk Miley Cyrus.
As first reported by X17 Online, police received a phone call from one of Miley’s neighbors early Thursday morning saying they had apprehended a man who claimed “he had a date with Miley.”
The only problem? He did not, and he didn’t even get the residence right.
“Ibrahim was trying to make entry into Miley Cyrus’ house, but he got the houses mixed up,” the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement. “When we arrived on scene, weMore >
The break up of Dianna Agron and Alex Pettyfer continues to be more messy than Lindsay Lohan on a Saturday (or Friday… or Tuesday…) night.
Following a year of dating, this couple split last week amidst rumors that Agron was peeved over an old photo shoot of Pettyfer and a couple hot, scantily-clad women. Agron has since moved out of the Los Angeles home she shared with the actor, but all is not comfortable for this Glee star.
Sources tell Us Weekly that Agron “is staying at a hotel under an alias.” The reason? Pettyfer has allegedly turned into “a psycho loose cannon” following the pair’sMore >
Karen Sjoden, a 49-year old who claimed she was working as a private investigator, was arrested early yesterday morning for trespassing on the property of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi.
Police say the woman was discovered hiding under cushions on the couple’s deck at approximately 5 a.m., with a spokesman adding: “She was placed under private person’s arrest and was transported and booked at BHPD for trespassing and prowling.”
Bail has been set at $200,000.
Why such a high figure? Because Sjoden appears mentally unstable.
Authorities found a “rambling letter” on her person, one thatMore >
Facebook stalking is one thing. We’ve all done it, am I right guys? Hello?
Okay then. Well, it’s better than literal stalking, i.e. lurking at someone’s house like a bona fide nut job. We’re talking to you, Pradeep Manukonda. Creep.
Mark Zuckerberg obtained a restraining order against that man, who at first was badgering the Facebook CEO on his very site, then took it beyond that.
Manukonda is accused of leaving flowers and a handwritten note at his home, walking up to said home, and showing up at several Facebook offices looking for him.
According to the handwritten note and FacebookMore >
Lindsay Lohan personally called 911 after a “high speed chase” with members of the celebrity gossip media, according to a source close to the star.
“Scared and frustrated” with the paparazzi’s attention, Lohan pleaded for help and the LAPD Pacific Division responded at the scene in Venice Beach.
What they found was a “very, very minor incident” however.
No charges were filed, but Lindsay was shaken up.
According to Lohan’s camp, the altercation was so serious she is considering asking her lawyer to go to court in a bid to get a restraining order.
“One of the photographers was the same guyMore >
The Sarah Palin stalker wants the world to know he’s innocent.
His hilarious, dubious explanation? Sarah texted him first!
The father of 19-year-old Shawn Christy says that back in 2009, his son began receiving “ominous” text messages from an unknown number.
The person sending the texts dropped several hints about her identity, including that she’s from Alaska and works in politics … obviously, it was Sarah Palin.
Why would Palin contact some random guy in Pennsylvania? Shawn’s dad couldn’t explain that part, but they alerted the FBI about these mystery texts.
The bureau didn’tMore >
Lindsay Lohan knows all about doing things strictly to get the attention of dealing with the paparazzi, but feels one shutterbug has crossed the line.
Having just moved to a more secure location by the Betty Ford Clinic after being stalked by Sam Lutfi (or someone), now she’s got more problems …
According to Lohan, a “psychotic” photog seems to live outside her digs. He’s there EVERY day and doesn’t miss a beat when she ventures out.
Poor girl just can’t catch a break.
Lindsay is so upset, she’s asked her lawyer to go to court and get a restraining order against this dude and severalMore >
