Lana Del Rey Obtained Restraining Order Against Two Stalkers
This time could have been better spent getting high by the beach.
Surely Lana Del Rey would rather be getting high by the beach than spending time obtaining restraining orders against nutjob stalkers. Unfortunately for The One True Coney Island Queen, some fans have been getting out of control and she's had to resort to more drastic measures to keep them away.
According to TMZ, LDR feared for her life after two Russian women "have hunted her down, screamed at her in public and even threatened her. Lana says [they] have put rambling letters in her mailbox, threatening suicide and other violence."
Lana went as far as changing her address to avoid Nataliia Krinitsyna and Iuliia Vladimirovna, "but the girls found her new place and resumed sleeping outside her house and screaming her name in the middle of the night."
Lana has contacted the LAPD and even hired a full-time bodyguard to keep her safe. A judge has even declared that the women must stay 100 feet away from her and her home at all times.
Despite (or because of) her reptuation as a badass (who can hold her own amongst biker gangs), Our Lady of Flower Crowns has been plagued by obsessed fans for a while now. According to Jezebel, "in early December  ... an obsessed fan was found hiding in her garage. 19-year-old Zachary Benton Self had traveled from Kansas and broke into Del Rey’s home while it was undergoing renovations. She was not at home at the time of the incident. Self was charged with felony counts for stalking and first-degree burglary."
Stay safe Lana! But is it wrong to admit that we're not-so-secretly hoping for a maudlin track about this whole thing on her next melancholy masterpiece LP?
