Fame and fortune is great and all, but being in the public eye and having your name and face known by millions has its downsides, too.

Harry Styles has found that out in recent times, as he claims that a man has been stalking him by sleeping outside his London house and putting notes through his letterbox.

The former One Direction singer has alleged that Spanish man Pablo Tarazaga-Orero has been stalking him for two months and has also made unwanted approaches to him on the street, according to The Sun. Police have arrested him - but as he denies the charge of stalking, it means that Styles will have to give evidence in court during his trial.

The alleged stalker appeared in court yesterday, with the charge sheet claiming that he had “pursued a course of conduct which amounted to the stalking of Harry Styles”.

A neighbour said: “A guy had been sleeping on the bench on the opposite side of the road to Harry’s house and also in the park. I last saw him on the bench in June. He first turned up in April.”

It's believed that Styles will be granted permission to give his testimony from behind a screen. The accused was granted bail and the trial date has been set for October.
