The “Adore You” singer had to take out an emergency restraining order against a delusional fan.
Devon Meek, 24, was arrested on May 16th by LAPD’s Threat Management Unit while attempting to get past security to meet Cyrus. While in custody Meek reportedly confessed to officers that he believed Miley says she “adores” him in one of her songs. We’re guessing the delusional fan thought “Adore You” was actually dedicated to him.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Meek went further and also told officers he heard screaming voices in his head. He also said that the officers should shoot him in the head if he couldn’t meet Cyrus in person.
Soon after Meek was placed in custody at a mental health facility, where he still resides.
“Mr. Meek stated that when he is released from the hospital, he will not stop seeking Ms. Cyrus and that he will continue to go to Ms. Cyrus’ residence until Ms. Cyrus accepts him or he dies,” a detective wrote in a statement obtained by the Associated Press. Sounds like some scary stuff for the pop star.
Because of his threats, the old singer decided to take out a restraining order requiring Meek to stay at least 100 yards away from her at all times. We think she definitely made the right call.
A hearing to extend the restraining order is set for June 16.
Cyrus is currently hitting Europe for her Bangerz tour which is set to make its way to the United States in August. Until then, we hope her creepy stalker obeys the restraining order and leaves her alone.
