Ashley Benson Files Restraining Order Against Security Guard Who Claims God Told Him to Pursue Her

Even A wouldn’t go this far.

Ashley Benson has allegedly filed a restraining order against an ex-security guard who attempted to pursue a sexual relationship with her, TMZ reports. The guard supposedly claimed that God told him to pursue the ‘Pretty Little Liars‘ actress.

Forty-nine-year-old James Gorton Jr. was recently fired from his job at the WB studio — where ‘PLL’ is filmed — and Benson has secured a temporary restraining order against the married guard, TMZ claims. He is instructed to stay 100 yards away from her.

According to the site, Gorton told his fellow security officials that he felt a “special connection” to Benson, 24, after she “happened to glance at him one day.” He apparently also believed that the star and others were “silently communicating” with him.

TMZ reports that although Gorton no longer works at the WB studio, the ‘Spring Breakers’ star is worried that Gorton may find her at home, hence the restraining order.

We don’t blame her for being totally freaked — this is some seriously terrifying stuff.
