Alleged stalker Eric Everado has visited Del Rey's home on multiple occasions.
Lana Del Rey has been granted a temporary restraining order against alleged stalker, Eric Everado, after he visited her home multiple times and stole her car.
According to TMZ, Everado first visited the singer's home in February of this year, driving off in her Jaguar. He was criminally charged, but returned in early July to leave her a letter which disturbingly described his feelings for her. He has also texted Lana's sister, and it is unknown how he got access to her phone number.
Del Rey stated in her plea that he caused her "emotional distress", and requested protection for herself, her sister and brother. A judge signed off on the restraining order and set a hearing for next month.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time Del Rey has dealt with having a stalker. Back in 2018, the police arrested Michael Hunt, who made threats to kidnap the 'Summertime Sadness' singer. He was caught on his way to her Florida concert with tickets to the show and a knife, after making threatening posts about her online. He was sentenced to one year in prison.
Before that, a woman named Icess Floyd broke into Del Rey's home in 2015. She stayed in the singers home for days, eventually stealing a Jaguar convertible. Once she got the car impounded, she returned to steal a second car. She was charged with two counts of burglary and felony joyriding.
Also in 2015, Zachary Self broke into Del Rey's home claiming he had a "spiritual connection" with the singer. He stole a book, and left behind a letter containing "ramblings of his infatuation" with her.
All of these events have made Del Rey feel incredibly unsafe and fear for her life. She spoke out at her show in Florida after Hunt was arrested, saying she was "emotional" and "nervous" to be on stage because of what happened.
