Billie Eilish has reportedly had her house blurred from Google Street View after she was granted a temporary restraining order against a man who allegedly showed up at her Los Angeles home... seven times in one week! Like everything in life, extremes are bad. And this is not the first time it happened. We know fans want to be close to their idols, but this sounds a bit extreme don't you think? Watch the video below!
Eilish described the situation
"While we waited for security, Mr. Rousseau remained on our porch, sat down and began to read a book, while also continuing to engage in a periodic monologue,"
She added that the man was exhibiting "erratic" behavior, and despite leaving at the request of security, he returned hours later and lay down behind a wall, attempting to camp there overnight. Talk about stalker mode!
"My father repeatedly asked him to leave, but he refused."
The star filed for a restraining order because according to legal documents, the man allegedly showed up, rang the doorbell, and had the nerve to ask Billie's dad, "Does Billie Eilish live here?". What a creepy guy!
Eilish’s stalker received also a restraining order. In theory, after getting this order, the person must be away from Eilish within a certain distance. If he doesn't manage to respect that, he could go to jail for several years, plus he has now criminal records. The man, named Prenell Rousseau, must stay at least 200 yards (0.18 km) away from Billie and her family, and must cease all contact with them.
According to the Sun, stars like Paul McCartney, Lily Allen, and Jimmy Page have requested to have their homes blurred from the search engine in the past.
A spokesperson for Google told the outlet:
"If a person sees that their face or license plate requires additional blurring, or if they would like us to blur their entire house, car, or body, they can submit a request using the 'Report a problem' tool."
