Stalker Ordered To Stay Away from Ellen Page

Actress Ellen Page knows the highs of being a celebrity but now she also knows the more dangerous lows as she recently sought legal protection against a young man who has been stalking her and making death threats.

A judge has recently ruled that Joshua Michael Meyers, who has posted online threats to kill Page, must stay completely clear of the actress for at least three years.

Police first launched an investigation into the stalking case in 2012 after the actress reported that Meyers had expressed his intention of murdering her in an online post.

Strange and threatening messages regarding the actress first began appearing on Twitter last summer and there were also reports that Page received more than one threatening phone call from her alleged stalker.

The Canadian actress received messages such as “I’m going to murder Ellen Page. She’s dead.” and “Ellen Page if you continue to date Alexander [Skarsgard] I will K-1-L-L you in public in then ext year … Be it in a club, in a restaurant, or when you’re signing autographs.” (The latter was in reference to the actress’ LA Kings outing with her “The East” co-star last June).

These tweets have been removed.

According to OMG Canada, after sending a search warrant to Twitter, L.A. police closed down two accounts and arrested a man named Joshua Michael Myers. On Wednesday, Page reportedly attended a hearing, during which an L.A. judge ordered Myers to stay away from Page for three years and forbid him from contacting the Halifax native.

The 25-year old “To Rome With Love” actress was in court when the restraining order was announced but she made no comment about the situation.
