Tinashe now has legal protection against the obsessed fan who traveled from Boston to L.A. thinking they’re married … especially alarming given his renewed interest in guns.

Martin Murphy will have to stay 100 yards away from the singer, thanks to a new restraining order. He also can’t own or even possess a gun. She first obtained a temporary restraining order after learning Murphy tried to reinstate his gun license in Massachusetts. He’s now required to turn over any weapons to either a gun dealer or law enforcement agency.

Murphy’s family had said he’d “suffered a psychotic break” that made it difficult for him to distinguish reality from fantasy.
