    Man arrested over plot to kidnap Lana Del Rey

    Police say man was in possession of knife when apprehended near where singer was performing
    Police in the US have arrested a man on suspicion of plotting to kidnap the singer Lana Del Rey.

    Police in Orlando, Florida, said the man had been in possession of a knife when he was apprehended near the Amway Centre on Friday night, where the singer was performing.

    In a statement shared on Twitter, the Orlando police department said it “received a tip about a possible kidnapping threat” to the singer, whose real name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant.

    The statement said: “The threats were reportedly made by Michael Hunt, 43, of Riverview, Florida. OPD Detectives considered the information a credible threat, and took investigative measures to locate Hunt.

    “OPD officers came into contact with Hunt at Hughey Avenue and Central Boulevard on Friday evening, one block from the Amway Center. When he was taken into custody, Hunt was in possession of tickets to the Lana Del Rey performance and a knife.

    “At no time was he able to make contact with Ms Grant.”

    Officials said that Hunt was being held at Orange County jail and faces charges of aggravated stalking with a credible threat and attempted kidnapping with a weapon.

    The police statement said that, without the tipoff, “authorities might have been unaware” of the threat posed.

    The Young and Beautiful singer, 32, thanked her fans on Twitter after her performance in Orlando on Friday. Along with a video clip from the show, she wrote: “Thank you so much for coming out and making those shows totally crazy and keeping the energy high.”

    One of the (many) pitfalls to being a famous person.

    Glad they caught the man.

    Poor Lana. Hope she's okay.

    Being a celebrity is a dangerous thing no matter how advantageous the life looks from the outside.
    Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

    I'm glad they caught him on time. The last thing we need is another Christina Grimmie tragedy.

    It's scary how people can become so obsessed with celebrities they don't even know.
    It reminds me of the Björk stalker who filmed his suicide after sending her a parcel that was meant to kill her.

    Sometimes I think celebrities should keep a lower profile on social media and not reveal too much about themselves in interviews. All of these things can be used against them in many ways, usually negative. The only way we should know an artist is through their songs, we don't need to know anything else about them. The more they reveal, the more people get attached and incidences like this can occur.
