LOS ANGELES, March 4(Xinhuanet)-- US pop star Janet Jackson is seeking an injunction against a man she claims has harassed and stalked her for nine years, according to court papers revealed Friday.
"He has been following me, sending me faxes and letters, and attempting to arrange in-person meetings for nine years," the entertainer states in court papers filed Tuesday at the Santa Monica Courthouse.
Jackson says she is"deeply disturbed" by the harassment, which has escalated recently.
She claims that 46-year-old Robert Gardner sent three faxes to her last month, each detailing travel plans for him to come to Los Angeles to see her. He also allegedly sent her"disturbing letters and faxes" referencing"a fabricated personal history" between him and her.
Gardner allegedly went to the taping of a show featuring Jackson,"armed with a box cutter, a large pair of scissors and a multi-function knife," Jackson says in her court papers.
Jackson, whose King of Pop brother Michael is currently on trial for child molestation accusations at a Santa Maria court, is also asking the court to restrict Gardner from contacting her family, agents, attorneys and managers.
A hearing on her request for a preliminary injunction is set for March 17.
