Actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw is reportedly living in fear of an unrelenting stalker who placed a tracking device under her car.

Investigators claim that Mbatha-Raw’s alleged stalker has been following her throughout the Los Angeles area over the last two months, thanks to the GPS tracking device police found underneath Mbatha-Raw’s car, TMZ reports, citing a search warrant.

Investigators said that the alleged stalker, a woman whose identity has not been publicly shared and who is said to live on the same street as Mbatha-Raw, has been appearing at the same hotels, restaurants, fitness classes and other public places as the actress, and has even showed up at Mbatha-Raw’s home before. She’s also accused of taking photos of Mbatha-Raw, as well as calling the actress and her boyfriend on the phone and then hanging up, the outlet reports.

The 35-year-old “Black Mirror” actress told Los Angeles police that she’s living in constant fear of her alleged stalker and is worried that the woman may become violent or even show up at her home, according to TMZ.

The Los Angeles Police Department is currently investigating, the outlet reports.

Born in Witney, Oxfordshire in the United Kingdom, Mbatha-Raw began making a name for herself among American audiences with the 2013 historical film, “Belle.” More recently, she’s had starring roles in the 2018 movie adaptation of “A Wrinkle In Time” and three Netflix projects — the 2018 film “The Cloverfield Paradox,” the 2018 TV series “Irreplaceable You,” and a 2016 episode of the long-running British sci-fi series, “Black Mirror.” Mbatha-Raw’s episode, “San Junipero,” recieved high praise from critics and earned two Emmy awards.
