A look at some of the stars who have been stalked

Armed guards, tall fences and the threat of prosecution aren’t always enough to deter an overzealous fan or celebrity stalker.

For decades, stalkers have presented musicians, actors and even reality television personalities with a persistent, and potentially dangerous, downside to their fame. The unwanted attention ranges from unsolicited love letters and social media messages to kidnapping plots and home break-ins.

Madonna, Steven Spielberg, Sandra Bullock, Jeff Goldblum, Halle Berry, Paris Hilton and many other stars have had to contend with stalkers who have threatened their safety and required the intervention of police and prosecutors.

Selena Gomez

In this April 7, 2014 file photo, Selena Gomez arrives at the 22nd Annual Alliance for Children’s Rights Dinner at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. Gomez was at her newly-purchased home in Calabasas, Calif., in late March 2014 when she had to call authorities because a man had broken into her guest house. Che Cruz admitted he trespassed at Gomez’s home in an initial court appearance and was sentenced to jail time and to stay away from the singer-actress’ home, but within hours of his release he returned to the property. He was charged with felony stalking and was ordered to undergo psychological treatment in June 2014 after he pleaded no contest to stalking Gomez. (Photo by Annie I. Bang /Invision/AP, file)
