'Wife' ordered to stay away from Leonardo DiCaprio
If you're Leonardo DiCaprio, "love" can be scary.
DiCaprio was granted a three-year restraining order Friday against Livia Bistriceanu, a woman who says she's the "Inception" star's wife and believes she is carrying his child -- a baby she says is choosing not to be born yet because the actor has not yet married her.
Bistriceanu, 41, who has been twice placed on psychiatric hold, was notified of a temporary restraining order but did not appear in court; DiCaprio also did not appear Friday. She's been ordered to stay 100 yards away from him after the actor said that he feared for his safety. Bistriceanu traveled from Chicago to L.A. to see him, and showed up at his home and business offices recently, court documents said.
The filing included a handwritten letter to DiCaprio from Bistriceanu written in August ...
I want to talk to you.
Tell me your cell phone number
I don't understand you why you don't want [the son she claims she is carrying], but I'm telling you that if you don't want me and him, you're going to hell.
I love you, but if you don't answer to my love I must go for somebody else. I don't have time to wait anymore.
Bistriceanu is not the same woman who'll be standing trial on an assault charge stemming from an alleged attack on DiCaprio with a broken beer bottle as he left a Hollywood Hills party in 2005. Aretha Wilson, the defendant in that case, in August was ordered to stay 500 feet away from the actor.
