Beyonce Knowles can rest easy when she performs at the Super Bowl later today (01FEB04) - a stalker fan who has been terrifying her in her native Houston, Texas, has been arrested.

CHARLES PHILLIPS, 24, was arrested on Wednesday (28JAN04) and ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after insisting he was one of Beyonce's cousins and the subject of her Baby Boy hit.

Knowles' family members called the police when Phillips showed up at a relatives home in Missouri City, Texas, four times on Wednesday, insisting he had a meeting with the pop superstar.

While he awaits an evaluation, Phillips has been placed on $500 (GBP294.10) bail.

Beyonce is back home to perform the National Anthem at the American football clash of the titans.
