The mere thought of Tyra Banks generally makes me cringe but the latest on her makes me cringe for reasons that are entirely different. Tyra has had her own stalker since January, Brady Green, who has been hounding her with phone calls and letters since the beginning of 2008. He recently showed up at the studio where she tapes The Tyra Banks Show. If that’s not creepy enough, he also brang with him a bag full of newspaper clippings and other paraphanelia that referred to his stalking. From New York Post,
“Cops finally busted the burly ex-con drifter Tuesday for allegedly stalking Banks from coast to coast, but he was released without bail – an act that has added to her anxiety.
Brady Green, 37, has hounded Banks with multiple letters and phone calls since early January, cops and prosecutors said.
He then started sending her flowers and showing up in person at her Los Angeles TV studio, they said.
The Dublin, Ga., native then took a bus to New York with the idea of visiting the studio where “The Tyra Banks Show” is taped. He arrived in the lobby at 4:23 p.m. on Tuesday, asking to speak to the former supermodel, the authorities said.
Green was carrying a large duffel bag stuffed with magazine write-ups about Banks and notes to himself about his various attempts to reach her, they said.
Cops were called to the scene, where Banks said she feared for her safety. Green was cleared from the premises.”
According to a witness, Green lives on the streets despite his clean-shaven appearance. Green was arrested in a restaurant but he was set back onto streets, no bail required, just a few short hours later. As if that’s no bad enough for Banks’ stalker, he already had two convictions against him in 2007. Just another little something that screams, “Put this man behind bars!”
As said earlier, I’m not usually one to jump to the defense of Tyra Banks but no one should have to feel scared when doing their job or at home. And stalkers should serve jail time, especially when they’ve recently had two arrests. Hopefully, there are people looking for this maniac right now to put him where he belongs but with laws as screwed up as they sometimes are, he probably needs to do something else before they can arrest him.
