- Elordi, 25, says a 61-year-old man has made several unwanted advances towards him
- He told a judge that he has left notes and flowers at his home on several occasions
- Elordi said the man was accused in 2007 of breaking into Nicolas Cage’s home
Jacob Elordi received a temporary restraining order from a Los Angeles court on Monday against a man he claims stalked him.
The Euphoria actor, 25, told the court that a 61-year-old man named Robert Dennis Furo has made repeated unwanted advances toward him in recent weeks, TMZ reported after reviewing court documents.
Elordi, who plays Nate Jacobs on the HBO series, said last month Furo left items including a note, a bouquet of roses, candy and cookies at his Hollywood, Calif., home on several visits.
The Brisbane, Australia-born actor said he has never met Furo, who he said left a bag of cakes hanging on a gate at his residence on February 5.
Elordi said he found the cookies while returning from walking his dog and subsequently threw them out. He said Furo appeared in his garden and said he was happy to see Elordi’s ‘stupid ugly face’ and then told him he loved him.
The actor, who appeared in last year’s Deep Water alongside Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas, said he asked Furo to leave the premises and reported his license plate number to authorities.
Elordi told the court that weeks later he found candy, flowers and a note in his backyard, and security footage showed Furo had been there three times in half an hour.
A copy of the note Elordi told the court Furo sent him read: ‘Jacob, I wanted to apologize for 3 Saturday. since. Hoped to catch you. Wanted you to let me know if you sent.
‘I found you one beautiful Saturday afternoon completely organically without an address without getting lost like this time. Would it be possible if you could call. My hands are shaking.’
Elordi said he has reason to believe that Furo is monitoring his home and whereabouts, and that he is afraid to return home from a film shoot he is currently working on, as Furo has posted about him obsessing on social media.
Elordi told the court that he has been advised that Furo has a criminal history and was accused in 2007 of breaking into the home of actor Nicolas Cage in the middle of the night wearing one of the actor’s leather jackets.
The court ordered Furo to remain at least 100 meters away from Elordi, his residence, vehicle and workplace.
Furo entered a guilty plea in 2008 to stalking in connection with an Oct. 1, 2007, incident at a Newport Beach, Calif., home that Cage owned, The Daily Breeze reported.
He was sentenced to six months of rehabilitation as his lawyer said Furo ‘sleepwalked … in a drug-induced stupor’ in the incident.
