Lana Del Rey is recovering after a stalker planned to kidnap her. As Papermag shares, the singer had a recent on-stage moment of nerves that she shared with fans in Atlanta last week. "After what happened in Orlando," she told the crowd, "I just really wanted to be here with you guys tonight. I was totally feeling fine and then I just got... a little bit nervous when I got on stage."
The "Love" singer thanked her fans for supporting her through this time. "I just want to say that I'm super happy to be here with you guys. But if I'm a little bit feathery, bear with me."
On February 2, a Florida man was arrested for allegedly threatening to kidnap the singer at her Orlando concert. As The New York Times reported, 43-year-old Michael Shawn Hunt of Riverview was arrested outside of the Amway Center. The singer was performing there.
Hunt was carrying a ticket to the concert as well as a knife. He was arrested on charges of attempted kidnapping with a weapon and aggravated stalking with a credible threat.
As Fader shared, authorities said that Hunt posed a "credible threat" to 33-year-old Del Rey. He apparently made "cryptic and threatening" posts on social media that reflected an obsession with the singer. “Well folks I can barely touch the electronics anymore it’s probably my last day on Facebook. I hope to see y’all on the walk about in your life be good and Ill see you on the other side everybody ...” one post read on Facebook. “Our Queen Forever in both Worlds xoxo I love you so much Lana I can’t wait to be back in your arms in a few days baby."
Prior to the arrest, Orlando authorities received a tip off about Hunt. He never came into contact with the singer.
Following the incident, Lana Del Rey seemed to be in good spirits. She joked off the issue and shared on social media: "Hey kiddos.
I’m doing fine thanks for the messages," she tweeted. "And tomorrow we’ll be in Hotlanta can’t wait to see everyone. Yachty that means u."
