Justin Timberlake Gets Restraining Order Against Woman Described As Celebrity Stalker

Court records show Justin Timberlake has been granted a temporary restraining order against a woman his attorney described as an obsessed stalker.

A Los Angeles judge granted the "SexyBack" singer a protective order against Karen J. McNeil on Friday.

Timberlake's attorney describes her in court filings as a "mentally unstable celebrity stalker." The papers state McNeil was placed in protective psychiatric custody by police after she trespassed at the singer's home earlier this week.

The filings indicate it's the third time the 48-year-old woman has showed up at Timberlake's home and that she may be homeless.

Attempts to find a phone number for McNeil were unsuccessful.

The judge will consider whether to grant a three-year restraining order at a Nov. 9 hearing.
