The Clooneys have taken out a restraining order against a man who was allegedly threatening to harm Amal and her husband, George.
US news website TMZ reported that the individual in question, Mark Bibbee, sent 189 pages worth of "rambling, delusional and disturbing" to the Clooney team. The documents comprised of fabricated plots to assassinate President Bush and six-year-old pageant queen JonBenét Ramsey, dating back to 1996. The most recent and current event included in the bizarre material concerned the Orlando massacre which the man described as "a false flag event to cover for LGBT criminals and paedophiles".
Bibbee is currently being held on a psychiatric ward in the US after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and possible schizophrenia.
The court has ordered him to keep a minimum distance of 100 yards away from the famous couple and their associates for the next five years.
George, actor and husband of international human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, recently discussed the pros and cons that come with fame and while he said that his celebrity status can be challenging, he added that his position enables him to raise awareness on issues of global injustice.
Amal and George Clooney have been outspoken supporters for an open door policy for asylum seekers and refugees. Earlier this year, the couple met a Syrian mother Mona and her 11-year-old daughter Joudi following their meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
