A Florida woman has been arrested for allegedly stalking a popular rock musician, and it’s not the first time she’s gotten into trouble for it. WKYT News reports that 34-year-old Jessica Robbins has been obsessed with Chris Cornell for years, but the feeling is definitely not mutual.
Robbins was arrested on Wednesday in Louisville, Kentucky, near a concert venue where the former lead-singer of the band Soundgarden was performing. Due to the perceived threat of this woman’s alleged behavior, every venue on Cornell’s tour had been given photos of his alleged stalker to prevent her from entering the events. It was because of this that she was recognized, and authorities were called to arrest her.
This is also not the only time in the past year that she’s been in trouble for this type of behavior. Back in May, the Florida woman was indicted in the state of New York on a charge of “interstate stalking.” Interstate stalking pertains to the crossing of state borders with the intent to stalk and/or harass someone.
Rolling Stone reports that Jessica Robbins had been missing since her indictment in May and had removed her ankle monitor bracelet before disappearing and missing her next court date. The Florida woman ended up in Kentucky a handful of months after her disappearance, where she allegedly showed up at a Chris Cornell concert.
The Soundgarden singer and his loved ones allege that the Florida woman has been targeting them for years, both in person and through the internet. Cornell also believes that the alleged stalker even entered his family home in Miami in 2013. The Cornells have also pulled their children from public school out of fear that some harm may come to them at the hands of Jessica Robbins.
Meanwhile, social media posts made by the Florida woman have reportedly shown a consistent pattern of stalking while appearing to target Chris Cornell’s wife. One tweet indicated that she’s had thoughts about death and violence associated with her alleged obsession with the rocker.
“I have overwhelming thoughts of death and feel death is the only way to stop a married man from feeding on my soul the rest of my life.”
This isn’t the first time an alleged stalker has targeted a famous person. In 2014, Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock came face-to-face with an alleged stalker, who had entered her home while she was alone. The man, Joshua Corbett, was dressed in all black and reportedly carried a notebook containing cut-out photos of Bullock along with handwritten notes, one of which claimed that the two of them belonged to one another.
“I will forever be thinking of you and Louie, my son, as you are my wife by law, the law of God and you belong to me and me to you.”
Sandra Bullock’s alleged stalker also had a reported arsenal of assault weapons, which were found in his home after his arrest. However, it’s been reported that he had a loaded machine gun on him when he broke into the actress’s home in 2014.

During the years 2003 and 2004, a woman named Dawnette Knight sent numerous letters to Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. She was reportedly obsessed with Douglas, viewing Zeta-Jones as a romantic rival of sorts. In one of her letters to the couple, she wrote that she wanted to “cut up Zeta-Jones and feed her to dogs.”
