LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15 (UPI) -- Mexican-born actress Salma Hayek obtained Friday a temporary restraining order against a woman she alleges has been impersonating her.
A hearing on the matter is scheduled for next month, TheWrap reported.
Hayek, who has a 7-year-old daughter with her husband Francois-Henri Pinault, also said in court papers Liana Geordie Philippon, a stranger to her, "made a veiled threat regarding kidnapping an ransoming Hayek's minor child."
The 48-year-old film star claimed Philippon -- a 25-year-old white woman -- coordinated with Orlette Bodagh and has "made attempts to contact petitioner and petitioner's family members," and actually pretended to be Hayek "on several occasions."
"This case arises out of a bizarre pattern of behavior by two apparently mentally disturbed individuals. Philippon and Bodagh, who both have a dangerous fixation and/or obsession with Hayek," the request for the restraining order stated. "Their action includes, among others, concocting ruses to meet Hayek's family members and obtain Hayek's contact information, impersonating Hayek to another celebrity, attempting to directly contact Hayek herself, and impersonating Hayek in contacting Hayek's minor child. In one communication while posing as Hayek, Philippon made a veiled threat regarding kidnapping and ransoming Hayek's minor child."
