It's pretty easy to look at celebrities, see the awesome perks that come along with being famous, and then decide that they've lucked into the easiest lives possible. But, we all probably know by now that, even the rich and famous have their troubles, and sometimes those issues come simply because they are public people. Unfortunately, Heidi Klum had a scare recently, which involved her home being visited by a man who said that Jesus had actually sent him there.
Here's what went down. According to TMZ, Heidi Klum was at home in Los Angeles over the weekend when a man came to her house and began pounding on the front door. Apparently, he was also yelling about having been sent to the house by Jesus, which is enough to scare some very not-safe-for-church words out of anyone. Luckily enough, Klum never actually had to interact with the man, because someone else answered the door.
Obviously, the police were called to the scene, but by the time they arrived at Klum's house, the man had gone away. But, once the police did a search of the area, they found him walking down the street, and stopped him to see if he was, in fact, the person they were looking for. After speaking with the unidentified man for a few minutes, the police felt he was suffering from mental health issues and decided to place him under a 5150 psychiatric hold, so that he could be properly evaluated and treated.
Aside from the man now, hopefully, getting the help he needs and Heidi Klum not having to confront him, the police now believe that he was simply confused, ended up at her door randomly, and was not actually attempting to target Klum for any nefarious purposes.
Man, this is all very scary, but it's good that the situation was able to be worked out, and that Heidi Klum and her family weren't actually being watched or followed by this man. Celebrities are no strangers to having stalkers or others invade their lives who have either dangerous intent toward them, have mental health problems and believe they have some right to be with or near those celebrities, or just want to get into their homes to see if they can nab some expensive items.
In just the past couple of years, WWE stars Sonya Deville and Bret “The Hitman” Hart either had their homes broken into by obsessed fans or were actually attacked. In May of this year, singer Billie Eilish had to file for a restraining order against a fan who kept visiting her parents, while musician John Mayer had to get a restraining order against a fan who had been harassing him and his team for several months in August of 2019. And, that's just the tip of the scary iceberg when it comes to dangerous fan behavior.
It's truly lucky that everything turned out alright for Heidi Klum, so she can handle her America's Got Talent judging duties without having to look over her shoulder.
