Harry Styles locked himself in his bedroom and felt unsafe in his own home after he was allegedly stalked by a homeless man he took pity on.
The former One Direction singer claimed at a hearing at Hendon Magistrates’ Court in London on Monday (14Oct19) that 26-year-old Pablo Tarazaga-Orero harassed him after he offered to pay for a night in a hotel after seeing him sleeping by a local bus stop.
According to London’s Evening Standard newspaper, Styles alleged in court that Tarazaga-Orero posted notes and cash through his letterbox, followed him to the local pub, and tried to grab him during a late-night jog.
“I thought it was sad someone so young was sleeping rough, that anyone was sleeping rough at a bus stop, when it was cold,” he said of meeting Spanish-born Tarazaga-Orero. “I felt sorry for him.
Styles claimed he then offered to buy food, driving to find a vegan food shop when he was asked for edamame beans. However, when he returned the next day with two sandwiches, two salads, and two muffins from a vegan cafe, Tarazaga-Orero asked if they could go to a restaurant – with Harry noting there was “something not quite straight-forward” about the situation.
The Sign of the Times singer recalled: “He made me feel pretty uneasy, I felt watched and I could feel him watching me as I entered and exited my residence.”
Describing the jogging incident, Harry said he was out running when Tarazaga-Orero saw him and “lunged” to try and grab hold of him leaving the singer feeling “pretty scared”. When he turned to run home and saw Tarazaga-Orero again, and told him: “I tried to give you the money. Now you have to stop, please move.”
The 25-year-old musician fitted a panic lock on his bedroom door, strengthened his at-home security, and now checks for “weak spots” in his property, after being left feeling “unsafe at home”.
Asked if he regretted trying to help the defendant, Styles added: “I would like him to get some help but I would also prefer to have no contact with him going forward. I would like to feel safe at home.”
Tarazaga-Orero denies stalking the star between April and June this year.
The trial is ongoing.
