Billie Eilish has been granted a temporary restraining order against a 24-year-old man who trespassed on her parents’ property multiple times.
A Los Angeles judge ordered Prenell Rousseau to stay 200 yards from Billie and her family members after Eilish filed papers for civil harassment protection on Monday.
As TMZ report, Rosseau turned up at Eilish’s residence a total of seven times last week. According to the report, he first appeared at the musicians house last Monday, ringing the doorbell and inquiring as to whether Eilish lived there. Billie’s father told him that she didn’t, but he returned to the house later in the evening where he exhibited “erratic behaviour”.
“While we waited for security, Mr. Rousseau remained on our porch, sat down and began to read a book, while also continuing to engage in a periodic monologue,” The court documents read .”My father repeatedly asked him to leave, but he refused…”
Rosseau was reportedly taken into custody twice that week, t law enforcement are “trying to keep non-violent offenders out of jail due to the spread of COVID-19.”
The next hearing is scheduled at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse on 1 June.
Eilish is staying at her family home during the coronavirus lockdown, after being forced to cancel her arena tour in the early weeks of the pandemic.
Billie Eilish has spoken of her love for J Hus and Not3s, revealing that she was introduced to their music by her father.
The singer was speaking on her Apple Music show me & dad radio, where she updated her current playlist with J Hus’ ‘Did You See’ (which Eilish described as one of her “favourite songs”) and Not3s’ ‘Addison Lee (Peng Ting Called Madison)’.
“My dad has introduced me to some of my favourite songs ever,” Eilish said during the show. “I really wanted to show the world that a lot of my taste comes from stuff my dad has shown me over the years.
“I love J Hus,” she continued. “He was, like, the first of the UK rappers that I was introduced to, thanks to my dad.” The singer also expressed her admiration for J Hus’ producer JAE5.
Speaking about Not3s‘ ‘Addison Lee’, Billie said: “This was my first introduction to Not3s; Not3s with a three, the homie.
“Dad didn’t know what an Addison Lee was. Dad didn’t even realise it was a car. Dad said, ‘Peng ting, cold medicine, cold medicine.’ I love Not3s! He’s a sweetheart, too.”
Billie’s dad then added: “For those of you who don’t know, ‘peng ting’ is a hot number, a hot girl.”

If there’s one question Finneas gets asked a lot, it’s which artist he thinks is the “next Billie Eilish.”
The Grammy award-winning producer and artist discussed the topic with Hanuman Welch on ALT CTRL on Apple Music on Tuesday (April 28).
“Well, the only version of that question that I can get behind is who is the next person that will do exactly what they want and be deemed pop music? That verbiage I would understand, but to me it does a disservice to two things. It does a huge disservice to Billie, in that you could be a next Billie,” he explained of his superstar sister.
“It also does a huge disservice to anyone they claim Billie is the next version, you know what I mean? It does a huge disservice to Lorde. It does a huge disservice to Lana,” he continued. “And I think that to me it was like, it’s not cyclical in that way. Billie was nominated for album of the year, the same year Lana was. It’s not like you pass the torch and then you just retire.”
“I think the whole response to our art being so positive is that it rings true and it feels a unique thing and I feel that was the thing that we strive for in the beginning was to not conform to any preconceived notions of what we should be doing,” he concluded. “And I think Lorde did the same thing. I think Lana has done the same thing. They’ve both been influences of ours, for sure. I also was like, ‘Isn’t she a little new- .. for there to be a next of any?’ Do you know what I mean? Imagine if somebody was like, ‘Who’s the next Timothée Chalamet?’ It’s like, he’s currently Timothée Chalamet.”

Selena Gomez recently gushed about Billie Eilish and the teenager’s emotional single “Everything I Wanted,” which Gomez says made her cry when she first heard it.
“First I’ll say, just the understanding she has — she already knows. She’s so aware of what this industry can be and become,” Gomez told Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio show. “And when I heard that song, I just sobbed because I’ve been doing this for so long and it’s like, damn, that’s so true.”
“There’s so many moments where I’m just like, ‘Oh, it doesn’t matter who you are,'” she continued. “There’s moments in my life where you’re like, ‘is this it?'”
The “Boyfriend” singer included “Everything I Wanted” — which Insider previously ranked as Eilish’s third-best song — on a playlist she recently curated for Apple Music.
