From a story in the LA Times:
Lakers guard Derek Fisher obtained a temporary restraining order Monday against a woman who has allegedly stalked him for years and changed her last name to Fisher, according to court papers.

The woman, Symone Fisher, has allegedly sent a number of e-mails, messages on social networking sites and letters to the Lakers star claiming to be his wife, even though the two have never met, Derek Fisher wrote in a declaration. She recently began showing up at the Lakers training facility in El Segundo and near his home, according to court papers.

"Her repeated attempts to contact me, her delusional notions that we are married, her angry and hostile tirades against me, her appearance at my place of work and her recent travels near and around my place of residence are all extremely frightening to me," Derek Fisher wrote.

The 40-year-old woman started contacting Fisher during the 2001-02 basketball season, when she had a different legal name, sending him packages of CDs with love songs, according to a declaration by Duran McGregory, his personal security manager. She re-emerged during the 2005-06 season with Fisher as her new legal name, sending him letters saying that the two should get married and that God wanted them to be together, McGregory wrote.
