Mandy Moore is now one of many female celebrities that has been the victim of stalking by a threatening male. The Tangled star experienced a number of incidents that involved the same man lurking outside her home while being verbally aggressive and attempting to leave the beauty notes.
Wonderwall shares further details about the events that led Moore to call authorities on each occasion.
“[A] man in his forties was screaming and swearing while attempting to leave notes on the singer’s doorstep. Apparently this is also the second time in three days that the man had been at Moore’s home. On both occasions, the 31-year-old called the police. A police report was filed after the first incident, however the man was not arrested at the time.”
The publication relays that the man is likely suffering from a serious mental illness, and that upon arrest he was taken by authorities and hopefully will be treated appropriately by specialists trained to assist him in getting well. However, until this time, the man remains in prison on felony charges, due to his aggressive and threatening behavior.
It is sad that there have been a number of cases similar to Mandy’s stalker happenings. The Inquisitr reported earlier this month that Rihanna was also the victim of threats and advances made by a mentally unstable man who photographed himself outside of the singer’s home.
“Police were called to the Umbrella singer’s home on April 30 after the man posted a selfie outside her Los Angeles mansion. ‘Outside yo house,’ he wrote. However, by the time police arrived the man was gone. The alleged stalker also made a death threat to the singer online, writing ‘Should of killed @rihanna a minute back I would be good right now.’ “
Additionally, it was due to mental illness that a middle-aged man encroached upon Kensington Palace earlier this month, where he proceeded to set himself on fire, later dying from his self-inflicted actions, as the publication also shared.
Clearly, these circumstances highlight the fact that more attention needs to be paid to young men struggling with mental illness in order to deter this kind of aggression and tragic circumstance.
Unfortunately, Moore has been experiencing additional personal drama on top of being a victim of an unstable stalker. The singer and actress has been going through a divorce from ex Ryan Adams, and there seems to be little ability for the two to see eye-to-eye on a number of issues.
The “Candy” singer is requesting support, while her ex is refusing to pay up. Another dilemma involves the former couple’s previously shared fur-babies. TMZ noted the trouble that the 8 pets are causing Moore.
“Moore filed legal documents in December 2015 ordering Adams to pay her $37,000 a month until they finalize their divorce. The former couple, who wed in 2009, have also had issues involving their eight pets. The ‘Red Band Society’ actress has requested that the music man take four of their six cats and also alleges that being a caretaker to their pets has hindered her ability to get work.”
The couple parted ways back in January of 2015, and at the time shared that the split was a “respectful, amicable parting of ways.” It is unfortunate that tensions have arisen since that time over the matters mentioned.
