A man who stalked Ryan Seacrest outside E! television’s studios on Wilshire, across from LACMA, was sentenced Monday to two years in state prison and ordered to stay away from the host of “American Idol” for 10 years.

Ryan Seacrest and his stalker.

Chidi Benjamin Uzomah Jr., 26, received the maximum sentence after previously pleading no contest to stalking. Uzomah did not speak during the sentencing hearing.

The judge also issued a restraining order requiring Uzomah to stay 500 yards away from Seacrest and his workplace for 10 years.

“Ryan is extremely appreciative of the work of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office in this matter,” his attorney Blair Berk said after the hearing.

Uzomah has been jailed since his arrest in October at E! Entertainment Television studios in Los Angeles, where he tried to reach Seacrest.

Court filings state he was carrying a knife.

Uzomah was on probation at the time for an incident in Orange County, Calif., in which he eventually pleaded guilty to three misdemeanors, including assault, battery and carrying a switchblade knife after he attacked one of Seacrest’s bodyguards outside an event.
