Big day!

This marks the first time I’ve ever sourced an article from TMZ. But enough about me; Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg apparently has a stalker.

His name is Pradeep Manukonda, he’s 31 years old and according to legal documents filed by Zuckerberg, he’s allegedly seen fit to “follow, surveil and contact Mr. Zuckerberg using language threatening his personal safety.”

Manukonda has apparently been repeatedly asking for money from Zuckerberg and has been barred from entering Facebook offices. One account even recalls the man waiting on the steps of Zuckerberg’s home.

And ironically enough, Manukonda has contacted both Mark and his sister, Randi Zuckerberg, via Facebook messages such as the one below:


You’ll notice that both messages are pretty odd and nonsensical.

Zuckerberg has apparently obtained a restraining order dictating that Manukonda stay at least 300 yards away from Mark, his sister Randi and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan at all times. A legal hearing is expected to take place “later this month,” according to TMZ.
