She claims he is the mother of her children

Apple boss Tim Cook appears to be being stalked by an armed woman who claims he is the father of her children.

In court filings, Apple says the woman, still at large, claimed on social media that Cook was the father of her children. She sent a series of photos with a loaded handgun. 

The County of Santa Clara granted a temporary restraining order against a Virginia woman who Apple says has been stalking CEO Tim Cook since at least 2020, tagging him on social media, travelling to his home and sending him photos of a loaded handgun.

Apple believes she may be armed and somewhere in the San Francisco Bay Area, intending to return to the "Apple's CEO's residence or locate him otherwise in the near future," the company wrote in a court filing.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, accused the woman of "erratic, threatening and bizarre behaviour" on social media, over email and in person.

At one point in October, she entered Cook's Palo Alto, California, property before quickly being stopped by local police.

The county's order bars the woman, whose lawyer could not be located for comment at the time of publication, from possessing any guns, entering any Apple office or store, or approaching any Apple employees, including Cook, or Cook's residence.
