LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A judge on Monday granted "SexyBack" singer Justin Timberlake a restraining order against a woman the pop star said he has come to fear, after she snuck into his home.

In a court declaration, Timberlake said that a woman named Karen McNeil had trespassed onto his property, hiked across it and entered his home without his permission.

"Ms. McNeil's ever-increasing, aggressive and harassing conduct are extremely distressing," Timberlake said in written the declaration. "I fear for my personal safety, and that of my family and friends."

Timberlake has won several Grammy awards, most recently in 2007 for his song "What Goes Around ... Comes Around." His other hit songs include "SexyBack" and "Cry Me a River."
