Aniston granted restraining order

Jennifer Aniston has been granted a temporary restraining order by a US court against a man who authorities say travelled cross-country in a delusional attempt to marry her.

Court documents filed in California say police detained Jason R Peyton last week after finding him with a sharp object, duct tape and love notes to the Hollywood star. Authorities say he was stopped after spending days trying to find Jen on Sunset Boulevard.

The 24-year-old was placed on involuntary psychiatric hold by Los Angeles police. A hearing on the order will be held on August 9.

The court filings state Peyton has said he won't stop his pursuit of the former Friends star.
