According to Oprah.com, this summer Erin Andrews' peeping tom video attracted 300 million searches before her attorneys finally demanded its removal. She told Oprah the digusting deed made her feel like a "stalking victim."
While we all have our Hollywood crushes, stalking violates the boundaries of reality. Here's YourTango's Celebrity Love list of the rich famous who recently have dealt with being pursued by fans who actually thought they had a chance at romance. (Worth noting is that the more serious cases are women, and all of them were unmarried when the creepers came creeping.)
Robert Pattinson half-joked all summer that fans who approach him while he's filming freak him out. He's been quoted saying he can't wait to go back to London where he blends in and no one cares about his fame. (And while he's said he's sick of American women, there's one he doesn't seem to mind.) 5 Kristen Stewart Traits That Robert And Men Love
Shawn Johnson. In a much more serious case of celebrity stalking, 17-year-old Shawn Johnson dealt with Robert O'Ryan, a Florida man twice her age, when he showed up last March on the set of Dancing With the Stars in possession of duct tape and two loaded guns. ABC News.com stated, "According to documents filed by [Shawn's mother] Teri, '[O'Ryan] had packed all his belongings and permanently left Florida to drive out here to be with [Shawn Johnson]. He believes that she speaks to him personally through the television set and through ESP and that they will have a child together. He stated he would be with her no matter what.'"
Tyra Banks. Brady Green, 39, waited twice outside the studio where The Tyra Banks Show is filmed, saying he "wanted to do something nice" for Tyra. New York Daily News reported he sent her two dozen red roses with a card that read, "When I see you, I love you." He was arrested last March at a McDonald's near her studio and reportedly sentenced last June to one year probation, anti-stalking courses, and two years banning from contacting Tyra. Reportedly he had moved from Georgia to Los Angeles to be close to Tyra, only to find out her show had moved to New York. (Just a little glitch in the moving logistics.)
