|Isn't this a bit over-the-top?|
Look at what happened to these celebs.
Back in 2005, Janet Jackson was finally awarded a restraining order against Robert Gardner, who she said had been stalking her for more than nine years. A year before she obtained the restraining order, Gardner appeared at the set of “Saturday Night Live,” armed with a knife and a box cutter. Gardner had also tried to contact Jackson in the past, and some of his correspondence included “disturbing sexual references.”
Miley Cyrus has had all sorts of run ins with stalkers. Back in 2012, Jason Rivera, who was armed with scissors, knocked on her door after climbing the security fence. When police arrived, he claimed that Miley was his wife. Miley was awarded a three-year restraining order against Rivera and he also had to spend 18 months in jail. Hopefully he learned his lesson.
Halle Berry’s stalker isn’t new to jail or to the criminal offenses he faced back in January 2012. Richard Franco was sentenced to 386 days in jail along with five years probation after pleading no contest to a felony stalking charge. He had attempted to break into Halle’s house three different times after scaling the wall that surrounds her home before finally being arrested. - Read more here.
Just the fact that most of these celeb stalkers not only pined for them from afar, but they made their way to their homes to try and break in no matter what the consequences were. I would be a total wreck and in some witness protection program somewhere if I was one of these high profiled celebrities. I don't know how they keep their sanity. I hear people commenting about Alec Baldwin wanting to retire from it all and you know something --- I do not blame him one bit. Can you imagine the paparazzi up your ass every single second of the day you try to leave your NYC apartment? For most of us, we would totally enjoy the attention for the first year maybe, but once you obtain your "set stalkers" --- you probably wouldn't want to be seen as much as you would love the limelight. Thing is, it doesn't matter if you are male, female, attractive or not --- there is going to be someone out there who relates to you, who wants YOU, who will do anything just to get in your space or even just the outskirts at any cost. There is something about "you" that sets this obsessed stalker into a full fantasy mode and sometimes, actually believes --- "BELIEVES" you are their property. Still want to be rich and famous now?
|Even hiding his own children…|
If you were being stalked every single day of your life by hundreds, thousands, maybe even millions of people --- wouldn't you pay anything just to live a quiet life once again?
