Celebrity Justice: Y&R's John Driscoll files Restraining Order Against Fan!

Now here is something we don’t like to see, especially to one of the nicest guys we know in the business!  The Young and the Restless, John Driscoll (Chance) has filed a restraining order against a female fan who, according to TMZ.com, allegedly came up with some horrific lies about John, that nearly destroyed his relationship with his fiancee and jeopardized his career!

According to court docs, obtained by TMZ, Driscoll claims the fan began telling people she had multiple sexual encounters with John … and he even fathered her child. Then things spiraled out of control — so John resorted to drastic measures.  John stated, “To silence these rumors, to gain credit back from both colleagues and family, I willingly took and paid for the lab testing on a paternity test which knowingly came back negative with a 0% match.”

According to the docs, John believes the woman “clearly is not rational” — and fears she will harm either himself or his fiancee. John wants a judge to keep her at least 500 yards away at all times, and in addition he wants her to pay him back for the $119 paternity test.

So soapers, I guess the lesson learned here is:  Fandom is one thing, but not at the expense of people’s real life relationships and their jobs in this very difficult economy and turbulent times we live in.

Gee there’s some crazy people out there. Good for him that he got the restraining order.

This is a very cautionary tale for both entertainers & their mostly respectful behaving admirers/followers.

Michael, how did this situation get out of control with John & this “fan”? Also, how did this situation negatively affect John’s job prospects?

Thank you for this informative report, Michael!

Wow how awful, some fans sure go off the deep end. I hope this woman gets help for the sake of her baby.

What a whack job! Glad he took matters into his own hands! Could have affected his job and relationships.
Reminds me of when the actress who plays Tina Lord on OLTL had a crazy stalker in the 80s!

Driscoll doesn’t have a job. He left the role of Chance in May.

I agree with Michael Fairman, John is one of the nicest actors in daytime soaps. I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with him at soap opera events. He is so kind, warm, friendly, humble and a real gentleman.

It is a real shame that this lady has caused him such un-necessary grief. Obviously, she needs professional help ASAP!

Apparently those of you who have left comments here have not read Sandy’s comment on TMZ.com or you would be well aware by now that this story clearly has two sides. If you would take the time to read it you would know that what John is reporting as a fan causing this problem for him is not correct!! John & this woman had a relationship for several months. The woman did not know John was cheating on his girlfriend at the time. She was told they had broken up, but found out later as she was seeing him. She… Read more »

Deb, I am really in shock. The paternity test is negative regarding him being the father of the baby in question. Obviously, that does not mean he did not have a relationship with this lady in question though.

I beleived he was the victim being stalked by a deranged fan. I guess John is a good actor, especially off screen.

I retract my above comments. After seeing the description of this Rebekah Booth lady in the court papers filed, there is no way John would have been romantically involved with a lady weighing 180 pounds. Nothing against plus size ladies, but I have seen the ladies over the many years that John dated and brought to soap opera events back to his days on Guiding Light. None of these ladies were even close to being a plus size. They all had model figures. This comment made by Sandy is just the opinion of someone who possibly knows John. After reading… Read more »

Amanda, first let’s get the facts correct here! Rebekah was not 180 lbs when she & John were seeing each other, she was a mere 120 lbs. And who has seen her on a scale lately to comfirm this rumor of now being 180lbs after having a child. Shall I remind everyone of Kate Hudson’s weight when she gave birth and afterwards! Also Amanda, John alledged many things in his court papers but failed to show for his court date to prove his allegations, why do you think that is? If he had proof of his allegations and was so… Read more »

In response to Amanda’s comment about the impossibility that John would be romantically involved with a female who weighs 180 pounds, you have no idea what you are talking about. I have personally hooked up with John (and yes, when he was in a relationship) and I”m here to tell you – he doesn’t care what size you are. In fact, I know of another girl he’s messed around with who was over 200 pounds. He may take these model figure ladies to events, but in reality, size really doesn’t matter to him. I can actually prove his infidelity over… Read more »

Deb & Bridgett—If I am wrong, I stand corrected. I read the court papers filed, which is on TMZ and basically came to my conclusion based on what I read. I apologize if I offended anyone. Thank you.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday,  Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis o ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And …. make sure to wish Nancy a happy 25th via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
