According to TMZ, the 47-year-old Shades of Blue star filed the document on Wednesday, stating a man by the name of Timothy McLanahan has been stalking her. McLanahan has reportedly followed Lopez across state lines — from Los Angeles to Las Vegas — and has even attended her residency shows. In addition, the Puerto Rican singer notes that McLanahan has sent her flowers and was previously arrested for trespassing at her L.A. home.

Lopez's restraining order against McLanahan also included a statement from the mother of two's bodyguard claiming that her stalker is known for having a violent past and had been under arrest for "firearms violations and threats."

McLanahan is required to keep at least 100 yards away from J.Lo and her children.
