Mark Zuckerberg, his sister Randi, and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan are all being stalked by some guy named Pradeep Manukonda.

Manukonda actually went to several Facebook offices in Palo Alto and attempted to contact Mark to ask for money. Manukonda was also caught walking up the footsteps at Zuckerberg’s house. A judge has ordered Manukonda to stay at least 300 yards away from Mark, Randi, and Priscilla. TMZ did a follow-up interview with Manukonda where he revealed that he is a peaceful guy that was dealing with personal problems. He basically just wanted Mark’s advice on his personal problems, which has nothing to do with computers. [TMZ]
