Celebrity stalker stories can sometimes come off as so insane that they are humorous, but in reality, they are sometimes followed by death, trauma ,and most times, isolation for the celebrity involved who is too afraid to leave their home. Here is a top 10 list of crazy celebrity stalker stories.
10. Anna Kournikova
The tennis player Anna Kournikova almost had a run-in with a crazy stalker who swam across the Biscayne Bay to Miami, naked to meet the athlete. He emerged from the water screaming for Anna to save him but instead of Anna, he found a three-year old who was most likely frightened and permanently traumatized. Stalker William Lepeska had his day in court where he was ultimately placed in a psychiatric facility and ordered to stay 1,000 feet away from Anna at all times. However, he was more concerned to find out if Anna had read his letters than he was for his own sentencing.
In 1996, Robert Dewey was convicted and given 10 years in prison for stalking Madonna. He was deemed a huge threat and was even shot by Madonna’s bodyguards when he tried to get past them to hurt her. Dewey was considered a very dangerous and violent man after stating that he would either “marry Madonna or slash her throat from ear to ear.” However, in 2012, Robert had escaped the mental institution that he was placed in after serving his 10 years, though he was thankfully caught and returned to the facility before any harm was done.
8. Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow’s stalker was a pizza delivery man who dreamed of opening a Kinko’s franchise with the actress. He also wanted a sexual relationship and would routinely send her sex toys with letters attached that said “because I love you.” He once told her that he wanted to cut the sin out of her with “god’s scalpel.” The man was considered mentally unstable and served time in a mental institution.
7. Joss Stone
Joss Stone's stalkers wanted to kill her and did not admire her one bit. Two men were caught in Joss’ house with a samurai sword, hammers, knives and a body bag waiting for her to get home. The plan was to murder Joss, dump her body in a river and make off with cash. Fortunately, the plan was derailed before it could happen; one of the men was sentenced to 18 years in jail for a murder plot and the other is in psychiatric institute.
6. Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber was forced to take action when a plot to cut off his man parts was well under way. A man named Dana Martin, who is in prison for sexual assault and murder, contracted two friends to hunt down Justin and cut off his manhood so that Dana could have it as a “souvenir.” Dana had every detail planned out. including what should be used to cut off Justin’s parts: a pair of garden sheers. Dana admitted to being attracted to Justin saying, "He's a good-looking kid. Would I go to bed with him? Yeah. He's legal, so probably."
5. Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez was granted a three-year restraining order against a man named Thomas Brodnicki. Thomas encouraged Selena to file a restraining order against him in fear that he would murder the celebrity. He said that he would have over fifty conversations a day with god about killing Selena. He issued a statement that said, “I believe that a restraining order should be issued against me to prevent me from trying to contact Selena Gomez.” You could say though that possibly more than a restraining order is needed.
4. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus came into contact with stalker Jason Luis Rivera when he was caught inside her house with a pair of scissors. Jason, who looks like he is 20 years Miley’s senior, stated that he and Miley were married and insisted that she knew who he was. Miley immediately filed a permanent restraining order on Jason, though of course like many stalkers, this restraining order was ignored. He ended up spending 18 months in jail.
3. Britney Spears
Britney’s stalker, Masahiko Shizawa, would routinely send her letters with weird messages like, “I’m chasing you,” and was completely desperate for any kind of attention. He even once showed up to a number of her homes, including her parent’s house. He would send her pictures, emails and letters; Britney eventually had enough and filed a restraining order. After that he tried to sue Britney, claiming that during an attempt to get close to the singer, her bodyguard pulled a gun on him and had caused him “extreme emotional distress.”
Stalker Bassey Essien believed that the real Beyonce had been murdered and the Beyonce who was freely walking the streets, was an imposter! Bassey Essien resorted to sending threatening letters, most likely asking her to stop impersonating Beyonce. The only thing that was kind of keeping Beyonce safe was the fact that Bassey lived in another country.
1. Chris Brown
Singer Chris Brown got the surprise of his life when he returned home from a Vegas trip and found someone living in his home. Chris was left speechless when he pulled into his driveway and saw his car vandalized with stalker, Amira Ayeb’s name. When he entered his home he found the words “I love you” spray painted on his walls. Chris Tweeted out, “I love my fans but this is some real crazy s***, I pray she will get some help.” The girl had apparently been living in Chris’ house for 4 days.
