After allegedly bursting into the singer’s home on her 29th birthday, Ariana Grande’s longtime stalker is currently being held in custody.
According to TMZ, Aharon Brown, who has previously broken Grande’s restraining orders, was detained on Sunday, June 26, after breaking into her house while she was gone.
Brown, who was arrested after Ariana Grande’s security alarm went off last September when he pulled up to her home and brandished a hunting knife, was charged with felony brandishing.
Brown has entered a not guilty plea to the accusations of stalking, burglary, causing damage to electrical lines, disobeying a court order, and obstruction and is currently being held by police.
Just days before he was supposed to surrender himself in for breaking a previous restraining order that Grande filed against him last year, the stalker broke into the house again. Aharon was previously detained by the Los Angeles Police Department for making criminal threats after visiting the pop star’s house and yelling, “I’ll fucking kill you and her,” while brandishing a knife at her security guards.
Following the incident in September, Grande appealed with the LA Superior Court to get a restraining order against Brown in court records. In a statement to the Los Angeles Superior Court, the singer added, “I am afraid for my safety and the protection of my family.
I worry that Mr. Brown will keep visiting my house and try to harm me physically or kill me or my family members, Grande said.
Brown was covered by the restraining order, but recently he ignored it. The celebrity stalker had until Tuesday, June 28 to file a self-report for the infraction, but only two days earlier, he went to Grande’s home to make another effort to approach the singer.
