Pop beauty Avril Lavigne refuses to let stalkers sour her fondness for genuine fans.

Last month (AUG04), a 30-year-old American man was charged with stalking the COMPLICATED singer, after he showered her with unwanted emails and gifts.

Previously, an over-zealous fan was caught digging up Lavigne's parents' lawn, while another presented her with a wedding dress in a box.

But she insists, "I don't mind them. Nothing bad's ever happened. It's a good thing that I have a whole bunch of fans. It's all peaches."
