'Real World' contestant Svetlana Shusterman takes out restraining order against Brandon Boyd
Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd has responded after a contestant from The Real World took out a restraining order against him.
Svetlana Shusterman, who featured in US reality show Real World 17: Key West, has claimed that Boyd has been stalking her for years and that he has threatened her life. TMZ reports that Shusterman has obtained a restraining order against the musician and that he must stay 100 yards away from her pending a court case in April.
Shusterman (pictured above right) recently filed a police report claiming she was left “terrified” after Boyd followed her in his car and shouted that he was going to kill her through the window. However, the frontman’s spokesperson says he has no knowledge of the reality TV star and has no relationship with her. “Brandon has been advised about this but doesn’t know anything about it. He doesn’t know this person nor does he recall ever having met her.”
Incubus released their latest album ‘If Not Now, When?’ in 2011. The following year band manager Steve Rennie denied rumours that the group would take a lengthy break before re-entering the studio. The California quintet previously took a lengthy break between their 2006 album ‘Light Grenades’ and ‘If Not Now, When?’ and had hinted at another hiatus, with Brandon Boyd implying he would record his second solo album.
