Burgess' Stalker Nightmare

Subscribe Tim Burgess

Rocker TIM BURGESS discovered the dark side of fame when a frightening fan began appearing everywhere he went - and insisting she was his wife.

THE CHARLATANS singer, who recently released his debut solo album, admits the obsessed woman had him worried.

He recalls, "I've had people following me around. Proper f***ing stalkers casting spells on me and all that. It f***ed me up a bit at the time.

"There's a girl that always somehow turned up next to me at parties or wherever. When I asked her who she was, she'd stay stuff like, 'Don't you remember me? Are you on drugs or something. Tim, I'm your f***ing wife.'

"I'd say, 'Well I've been married for two years so I think I'd know by now.' But she'd be so serious about it that it'd freak me out."
