AceShowbiz - Ariana Grande found herself unable to shake off one persistent stalker. On the "7 Rings" hitmaker's 29th birthday, a longtime stalker of hers was alleged to have violated the restraining order that prohibits him from coming anywhere near the singer by trying to break into her house in Montecito, California.
The stalker, who is identified as Aharon Brown, came uninvited to the "Thank U, Next" singer's residence on Sunday, June 26, as per the report by TMZ. The stalker was reported to have accidentally set off the security alarms when he broke into the property, prompting the police to show up and arrest him.
The incident took place two days before Aharon was supposed to turn himself in for allegedly violating his restraining order in his attempt to reach Ariana. The "Positions" singer, fortunately, was not at home at the time of the break-in.
Following his arrest by the police, Aharon was arraigned on charges of stalking, burglary, damaging power lines, as well as violation of court order and obstruction. He has since been placed in custody, but pleaded not guilty to the charges.
This incident, in the meantime, was not the first time Aharon attempted to get close to Ariana. Back in September 2021, he came up to Ariana's Hollywood Hills home in Los Angeles and threatened her security guards with a large hunting knife. He was heard screaming, "I'll f***ing kill you and her!"
The "Rain on Me" singer pleaded with the Los Angeles Supreme Court to grant Aharon a restraining order. "The fact that Mr. Brown has been regularly coming to my home for over six months terrifies me," she said per the court documents obtained by Page Six.
"Based on his threats, I am fearful for my safety and for the safety of my family," she further added. The singer went on saying, "I fear that absent a restraining order, Mr. Brown will continue to come to my home and attempt to physically harm or murder me or members of my family."
Aharon was not the only stalker Ariana had to deal with. Another man by the name of Fidel Henriquez was also arrested in May 2020. He snuck past the singer's security guard to leave her a love note at her door. After allegedly spitting on the police who arrested him, he was charged with misdemeanor trespassing and felony battery.
