Fan sends Ellen Page death threats through Twitter
The 25-year-old actress was so worried about the messages that she has turned to the LAPD for help.
Actress Ellen Page feared for her life after receiving some threatening Twitter messages in June -- enough to file a report with the Los Angeles Police Department.
"Ellen Page if you continue to date Alexander [Skarsgard] I will K-1-L-L you in public in the next year ... Be it in a club, at a game, in a restaurant, or when you're signing autographs," said one of the messages, according to TMZ.
TMZ reported that the search warrant filed by the LAPD asked Twitter for information on the account.
Another message that was sent to the Juno star reportedly said, "I'm going to murder Ellen Page. She's dead."
The LAPD also reported that a non-profit that organizes the LA Film Festival received a “creepy phone call” when To Rome with Love, a film Page stars in, was shown on June 14, said TMZ. “The LAPD claims the caller promised to go to the festival and ‘kill Page.’"
There is no word on the Twitter handle of the offender, but, according to the Washington Post, the messages may have come from two different Twitter accounts.
By the way, Page and Skarsgard were seen out at an LA Kings game in June, but they have not said anything about being a couple. They are co-stars in the film The East, so the outing could just be as friends.
The 25-year-old actress is keeping her plate full these days. To Rome with Love was released June 22, but she already has two other movies and a video game in the works.
It makes you wonder how the tweeter or tweeters could think they have enough time to be a couple at all.
The East is set to be released sometime this year.
