Former Cincinnati Bengals star wide receiver TJ Houshmandzadeh and his family are unfortunately dealing with one of the drawbacks of being a world-class famous athlete, crazy fans.

According to TMZ, the retired wide receiver is dealing with a stalker who legally changed her last name to match his and reportedly has been harassing his entire family, including sending letters stating she has “several bullets inscribed with the names of each member” of his family.

Per the report, the woman has been posing as the mother of Houshmandzadeh’s kids online and has even tried to make contact with his wife.

Annette Marie Houshmandzadeh, who used to be Annette Selkirk, was already hit with a restraining order in 2015, but it expired in 2019, and the harassment has continued. He and his family are now seeking a new restraining order to keep her at least 500 yards away from him and his family at all times.

Hopefully, the restraining order helps give the former Bengals great and his family some much-needed breathing room.
