Ariana Grande has won a five-year restraining order against a man who allegedly threatened to kill her at her Hollywood Hills home.

A judge granted a protection order for Grande against Aharon Brown, 23, who allegedly brandished a large hunting knife outside the home the ‘7 Rings’ singer shares with husband Dalton Gomez last month.

The report is reportedly set to expire on October 5, 2026. 

Grande, 28, filed a petition on September 14 requesting protection for her and Gomez, 26, claiming that Brown had begun making “sporadic” appearances outside her home in February this year.

His appearances allegedly increased in August and September until he was showing up “nearly every day and sometimes multiple times a day”.

On September 9 at around 10pm, Brown allegedly appeared outside Grande’s home with a “large hunting knife” and became “combative” with security when asked to leave.

It is alleged that Brown returned to the house in the early hours of September 10, telling a guard “I’ll fucking kill you and her” while brandishing the knife.

Brown was arrested near the popstar’s home on suspicion of making criminal threats, with police finding a knife on his person.

Grande, her house and family received a temporary restraining order against Brown following his arrest, and the singer told the Los Angeles Superior Court on September 13 that his alleged behaviour “terrifies” her.

She said: “The fact that Mr. Brown has been regularly coming to my home for over six months terrifies me.

“Based on his threats, I am fearful for my safety and for the safety of my family. I fear that absent a restraining order, Mr. Brown will continue to come to my home and attempt to physically harm or murder me or members of my family.”

Brown is set to appear in court in Los Angeles later today (October 7).

This comes after Grande was granted a five-year restraining order against another man, who was arrested for trespassing on her property.

Fidel Henriques cannot come within 100 yards of Grande, her mother Joan or her mother’s home for the next five years, after breaching security to leave a note at the ‘Thank U, Next’ star’s door.

Grande is currently appearing as a coach on ‘The Voice’, having joined Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton and John Legend on the panel for season 21 of the talent competition. 

Next week, she will be joined by ‘Wicked’ star Kristin Chenoweth as her advisor for the battle rounds.
