Leonardo DiCaprio has just won a restraining order from a stalker. Three years of peace are, supposedly, his. The stalker in question is a woman who has been placed on psychiatric hold twice. Lately she has claimed to be his wife, pregnant with his love child.
The problem with having a stalker isn’t just the psychological and physical and maybe financial danger, etc. Based on my experience with clients who have been stalked, the craziness doesn’t end in the head of the deranged wrongdoer. And that’s not exactly the stalking victim’s fault. A certain degree of craziness takes up residence where no restraining order will stick.
