An obsessed fan traveled across the U.S. to pursue Miley Cyrus and warned in social media posts of a “horrific act” he was planning before police detained him in Los Angeles. This is seriously terrifying, fam.
TMZ reports that the fan, who has not been named, is from the Milwaukee area and has been posting to social media for some time, apparently thinking that he and Cyrus are going to start a relationship together. He also claimed in posts to know her address and the best way to get into her house and at one point thanked her for “getting rid of” her longtime boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth.
“OK I HAVE BEEN RESISTING THIS FOR YEARS,” one post reads. “THE LAST UMTINE [sic] MILLION PRESIDENTS CHOOSE ME TO BE THE ONE WORLD LEADER. I HAVE FINALLY GIVEN IN AND I FEEL A LOT BETTER. THINGS ARE ABOUT TO MOVE FAST STARTING TOMORROW WHEN WE FINALLY GET TOGETHER MILEY. I LOVE YOU AND WILL SEE YOU SOON. THE WHOLE WORLD IS NOW OURS.”
In another post, the fan wrote, “I GOT YOUR ADDRESS LIKE YOU INSISTED. I KNOW WHICH WAS [sic] TO ENTER AND THANK YOU FOR GETTING RID OF LIAM. I DONT [sic] WANT YOEUR [sic] MONEY OBVIOUSLY… THIS IS HOW WE FALL IN LOVE.”
That post goes on to describe the act the fan reportedly planned, saying, “I HAVE THE MOST HORRIFIC ACT I MOST [sic] COMPLETE. IT WILL BE ON THE NEWS AND IT IS SAD.”
Another post read simply, “I love you Miley.”

TMZ reports that a concerned citizen saw the posts and reported them to police. Milwaukee police contacted several law enforcement agencies in the Los Angeles area, and the fan was picked up Monday. He’s now being held by police for psychiatric evaluation. Cyrus’ team didn’t respond to requests for comment, and it’s unclear if she knew anything about the man. We’re just glad that after all that, she’s safe and sound.
