According to TMZ, this past weekend at Corey Feldman’s house was a dog and pony show. His security guard was forced to make a citizen’s arrest of his stalker, who is also technically his roommate. Hold on, let us back up here. Jennifer Herbert is described as a 6-foot tall, 300 pound friend (well, former friend now) of Corey’s who he allowed to stay in his house and pay rent. Things went downhill shortly after Herbert moved in (as they tend to with friends/roommates). Feldman claims Herbert threatened to harm him, “trash-talked” him in front of his guests and asked his kid “adult questions.” Eek. We should also mention that Feldman and Herbert knew each other through mutual friend Michael Jackson. Anyhoo, Feldman allegedly had a restraining order against Herbert that required she stay at least six feet away from Feldman and his kid while in the house. An in-house restraining order? That’s genius. Putting all the pieces together … it would appear that Herbert violated her in-house restraining order, which led to the citizen’s arrest.
This stalking story makes our brains hurt. I’m sure we will hear more details soon. Corey is not the first famous person to have a crazy stalking incident. Our slideshow of celebrity stalkers will make you glad you aren’t famous. [TMZ]
Joe Manganiello of “True Blood” is, apparently, a stalker magnet. Even before permanently losing his shirt for the role of Alcide, Joe had a few rabid followers. “I’ve had two crazy stalkers that, ah, one would call and leave these really weird poems on my phone. Another one would send these creepy pictures to my house,” he said. “I was at the police station filing this report and the police officer’s trying to figure out who these guys are and I kind of looked at him and shrugged my shoulders and said, ‘It’s never a hot chick.’ And he just kind of stared at me.”
But since “True Blood”‘s new season started, things have gotten much worse. Keep reading »
Shawn Johnson is one tough cookie. She impressed us in the 2008 Olympics with her badass gymnastics skills and again when she won “Dancing with the Stars” season 8. But yesterday, we truly had to give it to her for getting up on the witness stand to testify against her stalker, the uber creepy Robert O’Ryan. This engineer believes that Shawn was communicating telepathically with him during the 2008 Olympics. He believed that Shawn loved him and that they would have a child together. When she was on “DWTS,” he drove cross-country from Florida and scaled a fence at CBS studios to try to get to Shawn. When police searched his car, they found a shotgun, a hand gun, a knife, plus zip ties and other cords, which he presumably was planning to tie Shawn up with. He also had love letters he’d written to her, a pile of clippings about her, and a map to her home. Fr. Ea. Ky. Keep reading »
Singer Andrew W.K. wasn’t always the rock star who got all the chicks. (Wait, is he that now?) Back when he was 17, he was obsessed with a girl who would barely talk to him. He even wrote a song for her, “My Destiny,” which is uber-stalkery. And now, he’s letting us all hear it—take a listen above. “She consumed me with both lust and hatred,” he told The Guardian
. “Lust, because I was truly drawn to her beauty and soft skin, and hatred because she rarely spoke to me, wouldn’t look at me much and never gave me a chance to show her my deep affections. I used to call her house just to listen to her say, ‘Hello?’ Then I’d hang up, terrified and shaking with nervous ecstasy.” Whoa, I’m having flashbacks of a dude I dated in high school who told me he would overdose on acid and kill himself if I didn’t go on another date with him. But that’s a story for another time.
Back to Andrew W.K. His stalker swan song is chock-full of amazingly creepy lyrics like, “Called up your number fourteen times to see if you were home, home is where I’ll find you when I find you.” Is it wrong that I think it’s kind of goth-tastic? Keep reading »
I saw this photo, and I was like, “Man, I feel really bad for this Brenda chick.” When I look at something like this, I wonder what the back story is. Let’s say the guy’s name is Elron. And he lives in Michiana. And he went to high school with Brenda, but he only admired her from afar, because she was sort of popular in a nerdy kind of way, and he was one of those guys who hung out behind the gym smoking cigarettes, looking angry and kicking at the dirt. One time, Brenda glanced at him, but that was it. Then, 15 years later, he was on this dating site, and he looked through what must have been 2,679 dating profiles — until, one day, he came across a special one. He clicked on it. It was Brenda. The Brenda. The love of his whole damn life. So, he sat down, and he wrote her a 5,349-word email, proclaiming his love for her, that he would die for her, that he would tattoo her name all over his body, if only she would respond and agree to marry him. He was so sure that she would respond in the affirmative that he got her name tattooed on his back, like, 100 times. When he got back home, he found out that she had blocked his profile. After that, the rest of his life pretty much sucked. That is, until, one day, he met another woman, and, get this, it turned out her name was Brenda, too, and they got married, and had kids, and everything worked out in the end.
