Adler And Slash Win Restraining Order Against Overzealous Fan
Former GUNS N' ROSES bandmates STEVEN ADLER and SLASH have been granted a restraining order against a woman who alleges she is the drummer's fiancee.
A judge at Los Angeles County Court approved a ban against Lisa Jill Martin-Cahn on Tuesday (28Jul09), ordering her to stay at least 500 yards (457 metres) away from the rockers.
Adler's legal team claim Martin-Cahn hired a number of private investigators last year (08) to track down the percussionist, pretending she met him during a stint in rehab in the early 1990s and became his lover, reports TMZ.com.
In her attempt to get close to Adler, the overzealous fan is accused of harassing his old pal Slash and the legendary guitarist's family with phone calls and letters.
But that's not all - according to Adler's legal documents, police visited Martin-Cahn's home in Oregon in June (09) and discovered "unopened boxes of houseware items which Cahn stated (were) wedding presents for (her and Adler's) upcoming marriage".
Adler, who is married to wife Carolina, insists he has no idea who the woman is.
