Apple obtains restraining order against Virginia woman accused of stalking CEO Tim Cook

·1 min read

Apple has obtained a restraining order against a woman who was allegedly stalking CEO Tim Cook.

According to documents filed with California's Santa Clara County Superior Court, Apple claims the Virginia woman drove across the country to make contact with Cook. The woman also allegedly trespassed on Cook's property on two separate occasions, according to court documents.

Apple also claims the woman sent several emails to Cook with pictures of a loaded handgun she said she bought along with ammunition.

Apple first became aware of the woman after spotting tweets she wrote claiming to be Cook's wife, and that Cook was the father of her twin children, according to the filings.

Apple declined comment on the restraining order.

The restraining order issued by the court protects not only Cook, but any individuals the woman knows are Apple employees, as well as any property owned by Apple.

This is not the first time Apple has filed restraining orders to protect its CEO. Last year, Apple won a restraining order against a man who allegedly stalked Cook and other executives, The Verge reported in 2020.
