Over the last part of 2015, Lana Del Rey was plagued with rumors that she had lost her boyfriend and was being harassed by burglars and fans. Now, Lana Del Rey is standing up to those that have violated her boundaries and is rumored to be seen with a mystery man that is not a stalker — or her assumed boyfriend, Francesco Carrozzini.
The Daily Mail stated that Lana Del Rey was out and about in Los Angeles on a shopping trip with a rather handsome man on January 8. This brings to life the fact that no one has heard about Lana Del Rey and Francesco Carrozzini’s relationship status in quite some time.
It was rumored that Lana Del Rey and Francesco broke up in early November by E! Online, but this has not been officially confirmed or denied.
In the meantime, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, it is highly likely that Lana Del Rey has not broken up with Francesco Carrozzini. Instead, it is more likely that he is in Italy for the holidays with his mother while doing some work as a professional photographer.
On the other hand, did the Daily Mail see Lana Del Rey with a mystery man or friend that she may be romantic with on January 8 — or is this her version of (much needed) private security?
Sadly, in addition to having two previous incidents with a criminal element in late November and early December, according to TMZ, Lana Del Rey has also had to file a restraining order against two Russian fans.
According to a January 7 report from Billboard, “[Lana Del Rey] filed for restraining orders against two women [from Russia] who had been intruding on her Malibu residence, leaving her threatening letters, and ‘screaming her name in the middle of the night.'”
In the past, Lana Del Rey has explained to the press that she is afraid of some of her fans and their intense obsession with her. Past incidents have included fans crossing boundaries and gaining access to Lana Del Rey’s former Hollywood property without her permission, according to a June 13, 2015, report from the Daily Mail.
Lana Del Rey was hoping that moving to the notoriously secluded area of Malibu would stop these types of negative incidents, but it clearly has not curbed fan-related annoyances in her life.
How dangerous can a stalker be for a celebrity like Lana Del Rey? Stalkers of celebrities are not always like Lana Del Rey’s recent fan that simply wanted to steal a few items of hers to sell online — but instead can be delusional, violent, or homicidal.
Alternatively, if Lana Del Rey lived in England, she could enjoy new laws that are designed to curb stalking online in early stages before it becomes a criminal offense, according to the Telegraph.
Celebrities like Lana Del Rey can benefit from these laws because “Officials said the proposals aim to stop stalkers before their obsessions get out of control.”
The lawmakers in the U.K. go on to explain that curbing this type of behavior is important for celebrities such as Lana Del Rey because “The nature of stalking can be delusional and obsessive with offenders going to extreme lengths to contact, follow and monitor their victims.”
As far as getting justice for being harassed by her fans, Lana Del Rey will find that the laws in America are also on her side. For instance, Beyonce filed anti-harassment charges against Bassey Essien from overseas, according to the Mirror.
Similar to Lana Del Rey’s experiences of fans being physically too close for comfort, it was reported that Beyonce’s stalkers’ “messages, emails and determination to sneak past security at concerts and public appearances left Beyonce too scared to visit London.”
