Blake Lively Obtains Restraining Order Against Fan~

Gossip Girl star Blake Lively was granted a restraining order against a fan who made her fear for her safety.

Court documents identify the stalker as Sergie Mifle, who was lurking around the set and claimed he had a spiritual connection to the 24-year-old actress and he was going to “help her heal".

According to the documents, Mifle also emailed and made several attempts to call Lively's mother, Elain.

The restraining order means Mifle must stay at least 100 yards away from Lively, her mother and the Gossip Girl set.
