Kylie receives threats on twitter

Threat: Kylie Minogue has revealed that she called the police after receiving threatening messages from a 'deluded weirdo'Kylie Minogue was forced to call the police after being harassed on Twitter by a ‘deluded weirdo.’

The Aussie singer, 43, revealed via Twitter that she had taken action against the individual who had sent her threatening messages.

Kyile wrote: ‘I love 1,033,861 of you LOVERS, but 1 is not a lover, just a deluded weirdo making threats #andthatdoesnotmakeyouspecial SO..police alerted.’

The star was immediately inundated with messages of support from her army of loyal fans.

This is not the first time the Australian-born singer has been victim of harassment.

In 2010 an Australian newspaper published pictures of a man thought to be of concern to Minogue’s security team.

The unidentified male was reported to be a near-constant presence at her parents’ home in Melbourne, carrying flowers and often an engagement ring.

In March of the same year, it was revealed that Minogue was one of a number of celebrities who were victim of lewd letters sent by former postman Mark Taylor.

Taylor was banned from contacting any celebrities after harassing stars including Jennifer Aniston, Penny Smith, Kate Lawler, Fearne Cotton, Lily Allen and Kylie’s sister Dannii Minogue.

And in 2003 a fan sent over 700 letters to the singer that were of an increasingly threatening nature.

Kylie is currently celebrating 25 years in the music industry, and after notifying fans of the stalker she resumed happily tweeting with fans about the ‘K25’ anniversary, posting funny pictures of herself in the Eighties and Nineties.
