Miley Cyrus Gets Restraining Order Against Fan

A 24-year-old who believes Cyrus is communicating with him through her music vows he won't stop trying to meet her until he's dead

Great pop songs often feel like they speak directly to us, although not quite like this. Miley Cyrus was granted a temporary restraining order on Friday against a man who believes the pop singer was communicating with him through her music.

24-year-old Devon Meek was arrested in Sierra Vista, Ariz., earlier this month outside of a property he believed Cyrus owned. Court documents do not elaborate on the location, the Associated Press reports.

Meek, who is currently in a psychiatric hospital, told officers to shoot him in the head if he was unable to meet Cyrus. According to a sworn statement from detective Rosibel Smith, Meek “will not stop seeking Ms. Cyrus” until she “accepts him or he dies.”

A hearing scheduled will for June 16 will determine whether to extend the order for three more years.
