Lana Del Rey wiped away tears as she talked to fans about the recent arrest of her stalker. 43-year-old Michael Hunt was arrested on February 2 after police foiled his attempt to kidnap the pop singer.
Del Rey performed in Atlanta on February 5 where she addressed the incident from the stage. “After what happened in Orlando, I just really wanted to be here with you guys tonight,” Del Rey said, visibly upset.
“I was totally feeling fine and then I just got … a little bit nervous when I got on stage. I just want to say that I’m super happy to be here with you guys. But if I’m a little bit feathery, bear with me”, she added.
Hunt, was carrying a knife when he was arrested close to the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. Del Rey had been due to perform at the venue later that evening. Police said the man posed a "credible threat" to Del Rey and reported that he had made "cryptic and threatening" posts on social media.
