London - Gwyneth Paltrow has been given a temporary restraining order against an alleged stalker.

The 'Iron Man' actress has taken legal measures against Nickolaos Gavrilis, ordering him to remain at least 100 yards from her, her estranged husband Chris Martin and their two children, Apple and Moses.

The super fan is accused of trying to sneak into their family homes in London and Los Angeles, according to ET Canada.

The court petition granted last Friday (18.04.14) featured details of the incidents from Terry Abbott, Gwyneth's Director of Security.

The first attempted break-in allegedly occurred in September 2012, when Nickolaos tried to get into the GOOP mogul's house by saying he had a business meeting with her.

Legal action was taken when the supposed stalker “made a third attempt” to access Gwyneth's residence in Los Angeles, California, earlier this month.

He was also spotted on April 10 near the Tracy Anderson Studio, the actress' regular fitness haunt.

The man has also been accused of posting “disturbing” messages on Gwyneth's Facebook page, causing her “substantial emotional distress”.

Dr. David Glaser, a clinical and forensic psychiatry specialist, backed up the claims, saying the man poses a “danger of great and irreparable harm to Ms. Paltrow, her family, and those close to them.”

A hearing will take place on May 12 to decide whether the restraining order should be made permanent. - Bang Showbiz
