TMZ reports that Jessica Robbins was stopped by police before entering the Louisville Palace. According to the website, all venues on Cornell's current tour have had a photograph of Robbins in case she shows up.

The FBI originally arrested Robbins in 2014 for stalking the Soundgarden singer after allegedly harassing him online. At the time, it was believed she may have visited Cornell's Miami home the year before. Cornell and his wife also pulled their kids out of New York public schools for fear that Robbins might hurt them. Robbins was released on $50,000 bail and in May went missing when she removed her ankle monitor and missed a court date. 

Meanwhile, Cornell's tour continues in support of his 2015 solo album, Higher Truth. On Friday he plays Cincinnati, Ohio.
