Lana Del Rey addresses the sentencing of her stalker

Lana Del Rey addresses the sentencing of a man convicted of stalking her.

Shawn Hunt, 43, was arrested in possession of a knife while outside the Del Reys’ concert in Orlando concert in February. Apparently, police were alerted to a string of “cryptic and threatening” messages posted on social media.

Now, Hunt has been sentenced to serve one year in prison because of the threat he caused.

Reacting to the news, Del Rey said: “I am actually just feeling a little more emotional than I thought after what happened in Orlando, but I just really wanted to be here with you guys tonight,” she told an audience who attended her recent show.

“And actually I was feeling totally fine, and then just got, I don’t know, a little bit nervous when I got on stage. So I just want to say that I am super happy to be with you guys, and if I’m a little bit feathery, just bear with me.”

Now, taking to social media, Del Rey added: “I’m just saying bringing weapons into the mix is on another level.”
