Well, this is “awkberg.” And kind of scary.
TMZ reports that Facebook founder and “Saturday Night Live” scene-stealer Mark Zuckerberg has obtained a restraining order against Pradeep Manukonda, claiming the 31-year-old has tried to “follow, surveil and contact Mr. Zuckerberg using language threatening his personal safety.” Naturally, he has been sending the messages through Facebook.
Law enforcement sources say Pradeep has gone to several of the company’s offices in Palto Alto in order to contact Mark; He wanted to ask for money for his family. Pradeep was also found by Facebook security at The Zuck’s home on Jan. 24. The cops gave him a verbal warning, but Zuckerberg claims he sent flowers and a hand-written letter to his home on Jan. 28.
In a Facebook message, Pradeep writes, “please help me,
then I am ready to die for you. Please understand my pain.” A judge has ordered Pradeep to stay at least 300 yard away from Mark, his sister Randi and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan.
