BURBANK, Calif. (July 20, 2006) — Access Hollywood breaks the news that Colin Farrell was surprisingly confronted on stage as he appeared on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” by a woman who sued him for harassment.
UPDATE: Access Hollywood learned Monday that Colin Farrell hasobtained a temporary restraining order against the woman.
The order requires Dessarae Bradford to stay away from Farrell until at least a hearing on August 16, Access learned.
Bradford cannot get within 150 yards of Farrell, his two-year-old son, James Nathaniel, and his son’s mother, Kim Bordenave.
Dessarae Bradford alleged in a small-claims lawsuit that Farrell stalked her with inappropriate calls and text messages, but her lawsuit against Farrell was dismissed.
On Thursday, Bradford was a studio audience guest at “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and surprisingly confronted him walking up to him on the stage. According to other audience members, Bradford left a copy of her self-published book, “Colin Farrell: A Dark Twisted Puppy,” on Leno’s desk.
According to a studio audience guest, Farrell calmly walked Bradford off stage and then, as she was escorted off the set, she shouted, “I’ll see you in court” and Farrell retorted, “You’re insane.”
When asked about the incident by Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush at this evening’s Los Angeles “Miami Vice” premiere, Farrell replied, “I don’t know. I don’t know.”
Sergeant Gunn of the Burbank Police Department told Access, she was “identified” and advised not to return to NBC property. Gunn added that she was detained by the police, but not officially taken into custody.
