Filmmaker Tyler Perry has become the victim of a female stalker who contacts him several hundred times a day.
The unnamed woman regularly turns up at the star's U.S. home and has even bought jewellery for Perry - prompting him to employ more security guards and bodyguards for his own protection.
Writing on his online blog, he says, "I'm trying to be careful how I say this without inciting this person, but I have a stalker.
"This person sends several hundred emails a day to my office and has planned our wedding and bought rings and such. She has showed up at my house several times. What's crazy is I've never met this woman, nor have I even responded to her emails. I've had to increase the guards at my house as well as travel with bodyguards and I hate that. I hate to have big guys following me around."
