Actress Sanaa Lathan has obtained a restraining order against a man who insists he is her husband.

Contractors working on The Best Man Holiday star's house allegedly found Shawn Caples asleep in her laundry room on 6 June (14) and forced him off her property.

However, he returned later that day and Lathan called the police after he refused to leave the premises.

According to, Caples showed up at her home again three days later and was arrested for stalking her.

He has been ordered to stay away from the actress when he is released from custody.
