When the weird yet gifted Icelandic recording artist Bjork started a relationship with music artist Goldie they were an odd couple. When fixated fan Ricardo Lopez read about their union, he went ballistic claiming he was in love with her himself.. He constructed an acid spray bomb that he hoped would kill her and mailed it to the artist’s London home. He then videotaped his suicide by shooting himself through the head, he was sure he and Bjork would meet in heaven. As fate would have it the package took longer to reach Bjork’s home than it took to discover Lopez’s dead body. After following clues from Lopez’s video diary the police intercepted the deadly package before it reached its destination. Bjork and Goldie broke up after that.
Comedian Ken Dodd was stalked by a woman half his age. Ruth Tag would send him love letters and nude pictures of herself.

She went more than a little too far when she pushed burning rags through his letter box. Ken survived but Tagg had caused thousands of pounds of damage to his home. In 2003 she was detained and charged with stalking arson and harassment. She was later confined to a mental home.
