“How I Met Your Mother Star,” Alyson Hannigan obtained a temporary restraining order on Wednesday, Feb. 13, against a man who has been threatening her and her family.
The restraining order states that John Hobbs, 43, of New Hampshire must stay 100 yards away from Hannigan and is to stop posting threatening messages. The restraining order also covers her husband, Alexis Denisof, and their two young children. Hannigan and Denisof met on the set of “Buff the Vampire Slayer.”
Threats were being made by Hobbs via Facebook. “I can still marry you tomorrow. I also can kill you tomorrow too. Cause I simply like and love you as you live life. Aly…it doesn’t end. Even after death,”
“Going to the casinos and a trip to Ca this year…So Alexis, I guess this means you better watch your wife, a little bit more than normal,” Hobbs reportedly wrote in another Facebook post.
Hobbs has owned a gun permit for over 10 years and was just recently released from a mental hospital, according to court filings. The “American Pie” actress is in “severe fear” for the safety of herself and her family.
Hobbs was living in an alternative world of his own. He was calling Hanngian’s husband, Denisof, “Mr. Evil Pooh” according to police. “A lot of this is driven by delusions. He’s created this love relationship,” said Brad Garret, former FBI agent, to ABC News.
There is a hearing scheduled for March 6 in Los Angeles to extend the restraining order for another three years.
