James Blunt probably didn’t expect fame to bring him so much trouble. In 2005, after having served in the army, he embarked on his first passion: song. And as much to say that he made without doubt the best choice of all his life since his song You’re Beautiful, is a real success all over the world. That same year, he even performed this song at the civil ceremony of Sir Elton John and David Furnish. It was the sight of his ex-girlfriend with a new man in the subway that inspired him to write this song. Only, as the Mirror reports, a very big fan is convinced that the singer was madly in love with her and has been harassing her since they crossed paths in 1984.
“It was pretty scary. She’s pretty sure she’s the subway woman I mention in my song. She sent me a detailed 50 page document on how I’m tracking her down, and that’s a little scary “, explained James Blunt, still not understanding how she could have imagined all that. He remembers meeting the fan several times at concerts. Indeed, she did a lot and was waiting for him at the exit either to take a photo or to get an autograph. While she claimed that their meeting dated back to 1984, the artist had no trouble proving the opposite since he was only 10 years old at the time and above all, he went for the first times in the United States in 2002. He was therefore not there in 1984.
James Blunt isn’t in the habit of complaining about his stalkers
“I’ve had a few stalkers, but I don’t feel like I always have to talk about them because they gave me wonderful gifts,” the singer added fondly all the same.
