Former Red Hot Chili Peppers star John Frusciante has filed a request for a restraining order in Los Angeles after accusing a 32-year-old filmmaker of harassing him.
The guitarist claims he is worried that August Elizabeth Thomas is "unstable and that she could snap at any moment."
In legal documents, obtained by, Frusciante reveals Thomas first approached him last year (10) with an idea about turning his life story into a movie.
He turned her down and then became the target of emails and letters from her, which he describes as "long, rambling and overly emotional."
The rocker claims Thomas showed up at concerts where his rocker wife Nicole Turley was performing to talk about her script, but he decided to file for a restraining order when Thomas showed up at his home on 28 and 29 July (11).
In the legal papers, he writes, "I fear both for my safety and for my wife's safety. Given that my wife and I are musicians and often play at venues around the world, it is hard for us to avoid Ms. Thomas if she is free to continually show up to harass us."
