Schiffer's Husband Fears A Fan Will Kill Her

Moviemaker Matthew Vaughn is petrified his wife Claudia Schiffer will be assassinated like late beatle legend John Lennon after a series of obsessed fans targeted the supermodel.
In 2002 an Italian man was sectioned under the Mental Health Act after turning up at the beauty's home in Suffolk, England nine times, while in 2004 a Canadian man had to be deported from Britain twice after also turning up at the couple's property.
But one particular incident left the film producer shaken and fearing the model could be killed like Lennon, who was shot dead outside his New York home in 1980.
Vaughn says, "There was one time when I walked into our kitchen and there was a stranger sitting at the table with a bag. My initial reaction was to tell him to 'Get the f**k out'. Then I thought he might have a knife or a gun and my wife and kids were asleep upstairs. So I ended up offering him a cup of tea. Then I dialled 999 as I put the kettle on. He was a freak.
"A judge extradited him. He got escorted to a taxi which was supposed to take him to the airport. But he just asked the driver to take him over to my house. The police followed him and told him, 'You know the moment you cross that gate we are arresting you?' and he said, 'Yes' and just climbed over.
"Then we had another person turning up with vials of her own blood. We have had some freaks. I am not the famous one, but as a husband you get worried for your wife. With the John Lennon thing - now and again a celebrity gets 'done in' - it is scary."
