Ariana Grande fan arrested at Connecticut concert after demanding a meeting with the singer

Timothy Normandin is detained on suspicion of criminal trespass

A man was recently arrested at an Ariana Grande concert after he demanded a meeting with the singer.

Timothy Normandin was detained on suspicion of criminal trespass and later released by police on a $5,000 (£3,125) bail bond following the incident in Connecticut last month, reports

Normandin was previously given a warning by police after sending the singer numerous gifts last year, including a 42.5 pound pumpkin.


In November, he was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold after showing up at her record label’s New York headquarters dressed as Santa.

Meanwhile, Grande was one of the big winners of the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards over the weekend.

She was named Best Female Artist and Most Talked About Artist at the ceremony while her Iggy Azalea-featuring track ‘Problem’ won Best Song of the Year.

The singer recently performed a cover version of Whitney Houston’s 1992 single ‘I Have Nothing’.

The track originally appeared in the 1992 film The Bodyguard, going on to receive a nomination for Best Original Song at the 1993 Academy Awards. For her performance, Grande was accompanied by acclaimed songwriter David Foster, who penned the number with his then-wife Linda Thompson.

Grande goes on a four-date UK arena tour in June to promote her 2014 album ‘My Everything’.
