Kidman stalker ordered to keep away

A Los Angeles man accused of stalking Nicole Kidman was ordered Wednesday to keep at least 250 yards away from the actress and her family for three years, Reuters reported. Santa Monica Superior Court Judge Alan Haber said there was enough evidence to suggest that Matthew Hooker, 40, had harassed Kidman. An Internet entrepreneur and aspiring screenwriter, Hooker had allegedly posted messages on his Web site, including a love poem called Nicole, and went to her home to invite her out. Kidman said she feared for the safety of her family. “There is no reason at all to have a restraining order against me. I’ve never threatened anyone. I’m a gentleman,” Hooker said, according to Reuters.
