The Basic Instinct star first requested the order against Phillip Barnes in 2011.

Sharon Stone's alleged stalker has been ordered by a judge to stay away from the star and her family for five years.

The Basic Instinct star first requested the restraining order against Phillip Barnes in 2011 after he turned up at her Hollywood Hills home and tried to convince her he was the father of one of her adopted sons.

The ban expired in 2013, and she asked a judge earlier this month (Sep16) to issue another protective order after she received a letter from Barnes claiming he could be released from a prison psychiatric ward in the next four months, according to

Now, a judge has ordered Barnes to stay away from her and her three children for the next five years and possibly longer. He cannot harass, intimidate or have any contact with Stone, and must stay 100 yards away from Stone, her children, their home, workplace, school and vehicles.

The judge said there was enough evidence to impose the maximum five years for the restraining, which can also be extended another five years when it expires in 2021.

Barnes has reportedly been sending her correspondence in recent years, although he has been imprisoned for the majority of that period, claiming in his most recent letter he could be freed if he passes an evaluation.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Sharon claims in one 2014 letter he asked her to bring him, "2 Crown Royal bags full of diamonds ... my 2 CIA badges, 20 billion dollars worth of Department of Treasury checks ... and my gun silencer."

When Sharon first went to court about Barnes in 2011, she claimed he was mentally ill and a delusional schizophrenic who asked her not to date anybody.

She put her home up for sale after the Barnes incident, which came months after Bradly Gooden was found trespassing on her property. She also obtained a restraining order against him.

The 58-year-old adopted her first son Roan with husband Phil Bronstein, and following their divorce in 2003, she adopted two other boys Laird and Quinn.
