If “The Social Network” and his appearance on SNL didn’t do it, Mark Zuckerberg can now officially say he’s a celebrity. Zuckerberg, his sister Randi, and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan have a stalker. TMZ got a hold of a restraining order Zuckerberg successfully received against 31-year-old Pradeep Manukonda, which alleges Manukonda has tried to “follow, surveil and contact Mr. Zuckerberg using language threatening his personal safety.”
You can’t say Zuckerberg is chasing headlines on this one. Aside from the fact Manukonda actually showed up at Zuck’s house, check out Manukonda’s Facebook messages to Zuckerberg and his family.
Manukonda was ordered to stay 300 yards away from Zuckerberg, as well as his girlfriend and his sister.
*TMZ was able to track down Manukonda, who lent his assurances that he would now leave Zuckerberg alone. “I’m a peaceful guy … I’m sorry he thought I was trying to harm him.”
