Harry Styles Stalker Jailed and Banned from Performances

Stalker receives jail time and a restraining order for stalking Harry Styles with 8,000 cards, causing distress and prompting additional security measures.

A woman named Myra Carvalho, who appeared at Harrow Crown Court sitting at Hendon Magistrates Court in London, has been sentenced to 14 weeks’ imprisonment for stalking British singer Harry Styles. Carvalho, aged 35, sent Styles 8,000 cards within a month, leading to her guilty plea on a charge of stalking causing serious alarm or distress.

Carvalho’s obsession prompted a 10-year restraining order, prohibiting her from attending any event where Styles performs. Additionally, she was barred from entering a specific area in northwest London and ordered to pay a £134 victim surcharge. Court documents revealed that Carvalho, a Brazilian national, had been staying in a backpacking hostel in Earl’s Court, west London, since arriving in the UK in December.

Persistent Stalking and Legal Action

This isn’t the first time Styles has faced stalking. In 2019, a homeless man named Pablo Tarazaga-Orero was found guilty of stalking after spending months camped outside the pop star’s home. Styles encountered Tarazaga-Orero and offered him money for accommodation, but the situation escalated when Tarazaga-Orero began showing up at Styles’s local pub regularly.

The encounters made Styles feel unsafe in his home, leading him to employ security measures. In court, Styles expressed how repeated encounters altered his perception of individuals, highlighting the impact of persistent stalking on his daily life.

Legal Consequences and Victim Impact

Carvalho’s actions disrupted Styles’s life significantly. Her obsession, manifesting in thousands of cards and letters, prompted legal action and underscores the serious consequences of stalking behavior. Prosecutors revealed the extent of Carvalho’s harassment, including descriptions of sexual urges towards Styles, demonstrating the intensity of her fixation.

The court’s decision to jail Carvalho and impose a restraining order aims to protect Styles from further harassment and ensure his safety and peace of mind. Despite the legal repercussions, the incident sheds light on the challenges celebrities face regarding privacy and security in the face of obsessive behavior.
