Tinashe says she is being stalked by a man who showed up at her front door and tried to get in… she now wants extra protection from the court to prevent this from happening again.
The singer just filed for a temporary restraining order in LA, and according to court documents – obtained by TMZ – the singer has been involved with the man for some time. Tinashe says the whole case reached its tipping point last week when she says the man showed up outside her house.
In the paperwork, Tinashe says she is randomly tagged on IG by a man named Ramon Oppikofer since 2022…which she says she doesn’t know at all. Tinashe says it started as seemingly innocent digital fanfare, but became a reality on October 27 – when she claims he showed up at her brother’s private birthday party… completely uninvited.
Tinashe goes on to explain that Oppikofer apparently handed her a hotel room key – which she says she immediately gave back to him and tried to laugh him off. Things got extra scary, however, after he reportedly arrived outside her LA estate out of the blue a few days later… with Tinashe claiming he was just lurking down her street.
She says she called the police that day, but when they arrived he was already gone. The next day, November 2, Tinashe claims this man came back… and this time he allegedly rang her doorbell, but got no response. She says he returned later that same day in an SUV… which pulled up in front of her house and shouted her name – only to be confronted by people Tinashe was inside with. She says the man left again… but wasn’t done yet.
Tinashe claims he returned YET AGAIN the very same day – this time, allegedly ringing the doorbell… while being rebuffed by her father who was with her, and then allegedly breaking into her actual home. Tinashe says she fled to a part of her house and locked herself in there… and claims Oppikofer tried to open the door. She says some music studio colleagues who were on the scene confronted him and told him to scram… and he did.
Tinashe says Oppikofer continued to lurk outside, and police eventually showed up and arrested him. By the way, law enforcement sources confirm all this to us – they say he was booked for misdemeanor trespassing… but was released shortly after.
The reason, we’re told… LA County’s no-bail policy – and that’s something Tinashe cites in her TRO request here… saying she needs this court-ordered protection to protect Oppikofer away because she fears he will come to her house again and possibly do worse.
She says she’s afraid for her life… and begs a judge to sign off on the case. At this point, her request has yet to be granted, but the situation sounds dire.
