Debbie Gibson now has her very own stalker
Debbie (excuse us, Deborah) Gibson is so popular she's got her very own stalker. The singer filed for a restraining order against Spaniard Bassas Jorge Puigdollers, asking that the 44-year-old be kept 100 yards away, not try to contact her and stop attending her concerts, the AP reports.
"I wanted to use the fan club to help people who can't go see her to get autographs and photos," he told the AP in Spanish, adding that the correct spelling and order of his name is Jordi Bassas Puigdollers. Gibson claimed Puigdollers has attended all her "nationwide performances since 2002 and often tries to get backstage to get her autograph and follows her to her hotel room.
The fun and games ended Sunday, however, when he showed up at her L.A. home on Sunday, prompting a call to police and an emergency protective order that expires Friday. A hearing on her request is scheduled for May 28.
"I understand that she wants her privacy," said Puigdollers, a taxi driver. "I would like to say I'm sorry. I don't want problems and I don't want to bother her so much." That must explain why he plans on attending five of her concerts in Atlantic City in May.
