Salma Hayek Obtains Restraining Order Against Women Accused of Impersonating Her
The actress accused the women of impersonating her and threatening to kidnap her daughter.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge on Friday ordered two women to stay away from Salma Hayek and her family after the actress accused them of impersonating her and threatening to kidnap her daughter.
Superior Court Judge M.D. Fried ordered Liana Philippon and Odette Bodagh to stay 100 yards away from Hayek and her family and cease any activities to impersonate her.
The order also applies to Hayek's husband and 7-year-old daughter.
"This case arose out of a bizarre pattern of behavior by two apparently mentally disturbed individuals," Hayek's filing states. "Their actions include, among others, concocting ruses to meet Hayek's family members to 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," the filing states.
An attempt to find phone numbers to obtain comment from Philippon and Bodagh was unsuccessful.
A judge set a hearing for Sept. 4 to extend the restraining order.
