New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner has filed a restraining order against an obsessed female fan who is suing him, claiming she is his “future wife” and that he sends her sexual “signals” from the playing field.
Is that why he is always tearing up the dugout roof with his baseball bat?
Guess not since Gardner and this woman have never actually met.
And here the Houston Astros’ players thought they were having problems with fans.
The 36-year-old outfielder got an order of protection against Gina Devasahayam in Bronx civil court last week after the 46-year-old fan filed a lawsuit against him.
According to NJ.com, Devasahayam’s lawsuit states, “I request the Court to grant me access to the Stadium in accordance with MLB fan policy and also in accordance with ‘Significant other’ of MLB player Brett Gardner. I am a Yankees fan and also the future wife of Brett Gardner.”
Devasahayam, who claims to be the founder and CEO of a biotechnology company, was kicked out of Camden Yards in Baltimore last August for trying to sneak into the visitors’ clubhouse, and was removed from Yankee Stadium in October.
She also states in the lawsuit that Gardner “motions with his hip on the stairs [of the dugout] as though he is having sexual intercourse with me,” makes “a sad face” during home games when she does not attend, and that the Yankees have hacked into her Twitter account to steal her intellectual property.
Devasahayam’s lawsuit, which also names the Yankees and Major League Baseball as defendants, states that the league is portraying her as a “deranged rambling woman on the loose.”
In an interview with NJ Advance, Devasahayam said that the fact that Gardner is married is “not of importance.”
Security personnel at George M. Steinbrenner Field, home of Yankees’ Spring Training, have been given her photo with orders not to allow her entrance into the complex.
The woman is truly frightening.
