Salma Hayek obtains Permanent Restraining Order against two Fans

Salma Hayek can rest assured that two female fans will not get near her and her family, at least in the next three years. The two obsessed fans actually made threats to the actress and her family's safety and this is the reason why this order was issued by a judge.

The two women, former couple Liana Philippon and Odette Bodagh, impersonated the actress and made a threat to kidnap her daughter. Consequently, they were ordered to stay away from Salma. "This case arose out of a bizarre pattern of behavior by two apparently mentally disturbed individuals," the court filing filed by the actress' lawyers said.

"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," it added. The same court document indicated that Philippon actually made "veiled threat regarding kidnapping and ransoming Hayek's minor child."

It seems that the two women did not quite understand the severity of their actions. During the court hearing that took place on the case, Bodagh claimed that she actually believed that she had a relationship with the actress. She said that she only realized what was really happening and the fact that she was scaring Salma when a temporary restraining order was issued against her. "I was under the impression I was talking to Salma," Bodagh said. "I am so sorry I did it," she added.

However, Bodagh asked the judge to not issue this permanent restraining order. She cried in court and claimed that the decision will impact and affect her career. However, the judge said that the woman became a stalker, even by mistake, and this is something that the court needs to punish. Bodagh claimed she will never try to contact Salma again.

Bodagh also revealed that because of her love for Salma her marriage ended. This is when she moved to Los Angeles with Philippon. The two are no longer together.
