A 24-year-old man from Arizona, Devon Meek, believed Cyrus was using her music in order to communicate with him directly. Meek continually attempted to meet Cyrus who was granted a temporary restraining order against him on Friday (23rd May). 

Meek was arrested in Arizona on 16th May after he was discovered outside a property he believed Cyrus owned, as the AP reports. At the time he was arrested, Meek allegedly told officers to shoot him in the head if he was unable to meet Cyrus. The 24-year-old was subsequently taken to a psychiatric facility where he remains.

However, the restraining order concerns where Meek is released as the detective who arrested him claimed the 24-year-old would continue to see Cyrus. Another hearing is scheduled for June 16th which may see the restraining order made permanent, for at least three years. The detective in question said, in a sworn statement, Meek "will not stop seeking Ms. Cyrus" until she "accepts him or he dies."

Apparently Miley Cyrus was stood behind her the whole time and was "like get it together," as Lawrence told Seth Meyers on NBC's Late Night.
