Kim gets restraining order against fan

Court records show reality TV star Kim Kardashian has obtained a temporary restraining order against a man she describes as "extremely delusional".

Kardashian's attorneys obtained a stay-away order against 26-year-old Dennis Shaun Bowman on Tuesday. The order prohibits Bowman from trying to contact the reality television star in any way, including via Twitter.

Kardashian is a celebrity model and pitchwoman and stars in the E! series Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Her filings state Bowman has repeatedly showed up at her appearances, sometimes in facepaint depicting him as the Joker character from Batman.

Kardashian sought the order after Bowman allegedly ignored cease-and-desist letters from her attorney and orders from Los Angeles police to stop pursuing the 29-year-old.

Bowman did not immediately return an email message seeking comment.
