Beyoncé Steps Up Security For London Gig Over Stalker Fears

Beyoncé has been forced to review security for her performance at the Chime For Change gig this weekend.

Beyoncé is taking to the stage in Twickenham this weekend for the hotly-anticipated Chime For Change gig, but the singer’s excitement surrounding her performance may have been tainted by fear of a stalker.

According to The Sun, Beyoncé‘s security team have been forced to review their procedures for the concert, amid fears that the stalker himself may actually attend.

The stalker, from South West London, is alleged to have sent the 31-year-old singer threatening letters and has been warned to stay away from the star. A source told the tabloid: “Staff have been briefed on the situation, and pictures of him have been passed round. They’ve been told to keep their eyes open and be extra vigilant.

“Security has been increased on a few engagements now, especially for her UK promo. It is believed similar letters to the ones that Essien [the alleged stalker] sent have been received.”

The singer was approached by the Londoner in 2009 and in 2011, she won an anti-harassment order against him in the High Court after he claimed she was an imposter who had killed the “real” Beyoncé.

Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora and Florence + The Machine will all perform at the charity gig on Sunday. Thankfully, it sounds like Beyoncé‘s team have everything under control.
