Singer John Mayer has been granted a restraining order against an alleged stalker, after he told the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter: “I’ve put many a Jew in the hospital.”

According to legal documents, 39-year-old Ryan Jeremy Knight has been sending Mayer and his team threats, referencing serial killer Ted Bundy and John Lennon’s murderer Mark David Chapman.

Mayer, 41, whose hits include Gravity, Daughters and New Lights, almost came face-to-face with Knight while performing in North Carolina in June before security removed him from the venue, the legal papers said.

Mayer, whose father is Jewish and has previously revealed that he relates to Judaism, suffered “substantial emotional duress”, according to legal documents filed in Pasadena, California.

A judge granted Mayer a temporary restraining order stating Knight must stay at least 100 feet away from the singer and his home.

A hearing will be held on August 27 to decide if the order should be made permanent.

Mayer, who has enjoyed critical and commercial success since releasing his debut album Room For Squares in 2001, is currently on tour.
