Jennifer Aniston granted restraining order

Jennifer Aniston has obtained a temporary restraining order against a man who reportedly believes he is in a relationship with her.

Jason Peyton, 24, has been ordered to stay away from the home, work and vehicles of the former Friends actress.

According to court documents filed on Tuesday, July 20 in Santa Monica, California, Aniston's stalker was arrested after prowling around a place where the "Marley & Me" actress frequents.

He was found carrying a bag, a note, a roll of duct tape and messages about Miss Aniston, 41.

His car was also carved with large messages reading "I LOVE JENNIFER ANISTON"

According to the restraining order, Peyton has to stay 100 yards away from Aniston's home, places of work and vehicles. He is also banned to make contact with Aniston's employees, agents, managers and other reps.

He is described in the papers as "obsessed" and "delusional".

Peyton has been placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold by Los Angeles police. A hearing on the order will be held on 9 August.

It is alleged he "drove cross-country in his delusional 'mission' to locate and marry" the 41-year-old actress, who is currently in London to launch a new perfume.

The order follows reports that actress Sandra Bullock has also obtained a temporary restraining order against a man accused of stalking her since 2003.
