Taking legal action to protect her children, Nicole Richie has filed a restraining order against a lurking paparazzo.
The fashionista is fed up with Fabricio Luis Mariotto for not only chasing her while she’s driving, but for hanging out around Harlow’s preschool, too.
In her petition for the restraining order, Richie says, “[Mariotto] drives erratically around my children and others, yells, screams and attempts to scare us so that he can photograph our reaction. He trespasses on preschool property to photograph the children.”
The temporary order will prohibit Mariotta from going within 100 yards of Nicole, Harlow, Sparrow and Joel Madden, as well as the school.
Stepping out for a midday sweat session, Nicole Richie was spotted leaving the gym after a workout in Los Angeles, California on Monday (November 8).
The former “Simple Life” star looked cute in a striped top and black tights as she strolled out to her ride once finished up with her fitness routine.
The sighting comes amidst more rumors of an upcoming wedding between Miss Richie and Joel Madden – with an insider telling that the two plan to tie the knot in December.
An X17 source said, “I heard Nicole Richie talking excitedly to Christina Aguilera about her upcoming wedding. She said, ’29 days to go!'”
Over the weekend Nicole continued her work out regimen as she and Ashley Greene hit their local gym in Los Angeles, CA (November 6).
Both decked out in workout gear, the Alice Cullen actress and her House of Harlow designer gal pal hit the weights before exiting to find a pack of awaiting paparazzi.
