Singer Deborah Gibson has obtained a restraining order on the man who has been stalking her, filing the application on Tuesday, but says she won't let the incident slow her down. Gibson alleges that Bassas Jorge Puigdollers has continually shown up at her hotel and house, but recently came to her house and knocked on the door.
Gibson, 37, said having him come to her house crossed the line. She told People.com, "That was really scary. I am a single female, so I reacted like anyone would and called 911. I'm very good at reacting calmly in the moment, but then I fall apart later."
Puigdollers was detained by police, but he was not charged with a crime.
Gibson had a brush with a stalker in 1989, when Robert Bardo shot actress Rebecca Schaeffer at her Los Angeles home. At the time of his arrest, his wall was adorned with pictures of Schaeffer, fellow pop star Tiffany and Gibson too.
She told People.com, "I was very young at the time, but it was scary, because I realized that whether you live or die can come down to security. This woman answered her door and was killed. From then, I've always had good security. I can't let it slow me down."
