The Royal Family of the Whedonverse has a very serious stalker situation on it's hands! Alyson Hannigan says John Hobbs is a mentally unstable man (with a legal permit to carry a gun, to boot!) who continues to threaten and stalk her on the internet and sending death threats. I really hope this isn't a Whedon fan, I'm just saying! Scary stuff!
Apparently Hobbs has created a romantic relationship with Alyson in his mind. She is seeking protection for her family and a temporary restraining order was granted. In her petition, she states Hobbs has "posted a barrage of threatening messages directed at me and my family on various websites" and that "he seemed to be living in an alternate reality." Police say Hobbs is unstable and was recently discharged from a mental hospital. A judge will decide if the orders will become permanent on March 6.
I don't want to post his image or the messages he's been sending her, it seems too creepy to copy and paste them here...but they are really sick and frightening! Hobbs refers to Alexis, as "Mr. Evil 2" in them, as well. WTF?

Be careful Hannigan-Denisofs! This must be a very stressful time for them, hope this situation resolves itself quickly and cleanly!
