Stalker repeatedly tried contact Mark Zuckerberg for money.

Recently, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was forced to file legal papers citing fear for his and his family’s safety after he was repeatedly stalked by Facebook user Pradeep Manukonda.

According to a TMZ report, Manukonda tried to “follow, surveil and contact Mr. Zuckerberg using language threatening his personal safety.” Once, Facebook security had even ‘intercepted’ Manukonda at Zuckerberg’s Palo Alto home on Jan 24 “just as he (Mark) was about to walk up the front steps,” the court papers state.

Manukonda had repeatedly tried to contact Mark and his sister, Randi Zuckerberg requesting monetary help from them. In one of his messages to Mark Zuckerberg, he wrote “please help me, then i am ready to die for you….please understand the urgency…time is really running out me.”

TMZ reports that Manukonda had gone to several Facebook offices, sending flowers and a hand-written letter in an attempt contact Mark.

The court has now ordered Manukonda to stay at least 300 yards away from Mark, his sister Randi and his girlfriend Priscilla chan.
