‘Pretty Little Liars’ Star Ashley Benson Granted Restraining Order Against Ex-Security Guard
Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson has won a three-year restraining order against a former security guard.
Last month, the actress was granted a temporary order against 49-year-old James Gorton, Jr., and now a California judge has ruled he must stay at least 100 yards away from Benson for the next three years.
Gorton, Jr. was fired from his position as a guard on the Warner Brothers lot in Burbank, California where her hit teen drama is filmed, after he allegedly told studio security officials that he had feelings for the 24 year old, and that “God instructed him to pursue her romantically”.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ.com, he also reportedly told colleagues he “felt a special bond” with Benson after she looked his way one day, and he believed she was silently sending him subliminal messages.
