A man allegedly obsessed with impregnating singer Miley Cyrus was arrested at one of her concerts over the weekend after her security team spotted him at the venue.
David Rumsey, 42, was taken into custody after showing up at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday night, where Cyrus performed at the iHeartRadio festival, TMZ reports. The 26-year-old singer’s security team was apparently already on the lookout for Rumsey that night; he’d allegedly made threatening statements concerning Cyrus in the past, leading her security personnel to make a point of keeping an eye out for Rumsey at the show, even handing out his photo to staff at the venue so that they could do the same, according to the outlet’s anonymous sources.
After Cyrus’ team saw Rumsey in the audience, they alerted police and he was arrested, the outlet reports.
“It’s my life's mission to impregnate Miley,” Rumsey is alleged to have told members of Cyrus’ security team at some point, according to TMZ.
Rumsey was booked at the Clark County Detention Center on charges of making threats and sharing false information regarding an act of terrorism, as well as a burglary charge, online records show. His bail was set at $100,000 and he was still in custody as of Wednesday. He is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 7.
A Twitter feed attributed to Rumsey contains a wealth of disturbing posts that mention Cyrus. On Saturday, he replied to Cyrus’ tweet regarding her upcoming performance at the festival, writing, “Can’t wait. Been here since Thursday hoping to maybe meet up before if you where in town early. Love you and hope you give me time. We have a lot to talk about.”
He again referenced his intention to meet up with Cyrus in another tweet, writing, “just an fyi I would have spent more on concert but didn't want to be sitting next to someone trying to get with me. I myself don't want to be next to anyone but you. I do hope we can meet up like I've been asking before the concert just to talk about your music lyrics.”
In other posts that seem to be addressed to Cyrus, he wrote that he was staying at a Motel 6, provided his room number, and suggested that he planned to meet with her at some point.
TMZ reports that Rumsey posted a tweet on Sept. 13 that reads, in part, “I know after we are together we can party it up with 2pac, biggie, Prince, Michael Jackson and all those we lost."
In a previous tweet, he apologized for “hurting [Cyrus] before” and blamed President Donald Trump. He then accused her of having “played with [him]” and getting him “locked up” before referring to himself as the “king of kings.”
Cyrus has not commented publicly on Rumsey or his arrest.
