Lana Del Rey is Safe After Attempted Kidnapping Incident
Release a huge sigh of relief. (And also thank the Orlando cops while you're at it too.)
In an attempt to kidnap Lana Del Rey before her concert at the Amway Center on Friday night (February 2), the Orlando Police Department successfully caught and arrested the suspect named Michael Hunt.
Though the 32-year-old singer hasn't addressed or referenced the incident, the Orlando Police Department provided a detailed report on the attempted kidnapping plot set by Hunt.
"ARRESTED: Michael Hunt, for aggravated stalking & attempted kidnapping w/a weapon," the authorities tweeted. "After receiving a tip we deemed a credible threat, OPD got to him before he could get near singer Lana Del Rey last night at her show at Amway Center."
Upon his arrest, Hunt was carrying a knife along with tickets to Friday night's concert.
According to a report from TMZ, the 43-year-old stalker posted "'cryptic and threatening' messages on social media" prior to his attempt. Upon his current arrest, it was also discovered that Hunt already had quite a history behind him serving five sentences with a long criminal record.
Fortunately, the "Lust for Life" singer seemed to be unphased by the incident and continued to perform on Friday night as scheduled.
As mentioned earlier, Del Rey hasn't publicly addressed the situation but has updated Twitter thanking the state of Florida for successful shows.
