Alysson Billings has been contacting Plant for over 3-years now, appearing at concerts worldwide and sending him flowers, packages and hotel room keys. She claims to be in a relationship with Plant, and his romance with his singing partner Patty Griffin has displeased her, causing her to send him some disturbing messages:
You're relationship with this woman still stabs my mind... This woman is literally evil for you and your life... you are about to fall for that dirty old crotch. And I'm not joking, I cannot, will not, shall not live this way anymore.
These messages caused security experts consulted by Plant to suggest the woman is a legitimate threat to Plant, and he has obtained a restraining order against her.
As for the dirty old crotch herself Patty Griffin, in a recent interview to promote her new album, American Kid (available today), she said of her relationship to Plant, "We're not legally married, no."
Plant and Griffin will be performing together in London next week, kicking off promotion for the American Kid album.
