Zakk demands restraining order after 20-year-old fan spends months chasing him – and leaves bizarre “sacrifice” at his hero’s door
Black Label Society mainman Zakk Wylde is reported to be living in fear of a 20-year-old neighbour who’s been stalking him.
Wylde applied for a restraining order after becoming “terrified” when the man left a sacrifice at his door consisting of one of his retail signature guitars and a lumberjack shirt.
TMZ reports that a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge approved a temporary order, requiring the fan to stay 100 yards away from the musician and his family.
Wylde called police after the “sacrifice” incident, after which the fan was arrested and placed under mental evaluation for a 72-hour period.
In his application the guitarist admits his fear of the situation, which he says has been going on for months. He adds that the unnamed man has been “deemed mentally ill” and diagnosed with Bipolar 1 Disorder.
The case returns to court on Friday, when the judge will decide whether the temporary order should become permanent.
