Kylie Minogue Alerts Police over Stalker

Kylie Minogue has reportedly contacted police over an alleged male stalker.

Kylie called the emergency services when the man “repeatedly pressed the intercom button to her home for hours on end last Wednesday and refused to leave”, one of Kylie’s neighbours in Chelsea, west London, told The Sun.

“Kylie was quite upset and called in police. They spoke to Kylie, and also the suspect in the street for quite a while,” the neighbour added, commenting that the incident appeared to be part of the man’s “sustained campaign” against the star.

A female resident of the exclusive area added to the publication that she had warned Kylie about the man, who is believed to be in his 40s with a thick European accent, after he began making enquiries about the singer last month.

“A weirdo guy was lurking around. He went door to door asking people where Kylie lived,” she said. “I don’t think anybody alerted the police, but we gave her a heads-up because it wasn’t normal behaviour.”

After police were called, officers issued the man with a first-time formal warning, but did not arrest him.

“Both parties were spoken to and the matter was dealt with by the man being issued with a first-instance harassment warning,” a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

And in the wake of the scary incident, a “shaken” Kylie is believed to have beefed up her security.

“Obviously she was very shaken by what has happened, as anyone would be, but she has taken the sensible steps,” a source told The Sun. “She has always had security arrangements and people who she trusts nearby especially for when she goes out, but she will, of course, be looking at other options.”

It’s not the first time Kylie has been the target of unwanted attention from fans. Kylie Minogue has previously had four stalkers, the most recent of which came in 2012, when she revealed a “deluded weirdo” was sending her threatening messages on Twitter. She called police to report the crime, but nobody was arrested.
