Los Angeles, Jan 12 (IANS) Singer Lana Del Rey’s stalker has been sentenced to 84 days in jail.
According to court documents, Rey’s stalker Zachary Self broke into the 30-year-old’s Malibu house last November. At that time, though the singer wasn’t home, construction workers found Self lying on a mat in the garage, reports tmz.com.
Tracing the stalker, the police found a notepad with disturbing messages, professing his love for the “Blue jeans” hitmaker along with a “notice to appear” citation for a burglary in Kansas.
When police officials looked up the name on the ticket on social media, images of Self on Del Rey’s Malibu balcony emerged along with creepy messages. In one, he claimed he was “engaged to heaven on Earth with Lana Del Rey”.
The police officials picked him up in December followed by Self’s declaration that he had become obsessed with the singer while under the influence of hallucinogens. His family says he’s bi-polar.
Self will be on probation for five years and has been asked to spend a year in a residential programme. He’s been ordered to stay clear of Del Rey for the next 10 years.
