Lana Del Rey fan jailed after breaking into her home and posting pictures on social media

Zachary Self pleaded no contest to stalking the singer

A man has been sentenced to nearly three months in prison after breaking into Lana Del Rey‘s home last year.

Zachary Self faces 84 days in jail after pleading no contest to stalking. Self was discovered by construction workers in Del Rey’s Malibu home in November 2015. He fled the property but was tracked down by police after he left a court citation for a separate burglary behind.

That burglary took place in Kansas and when police looked Self up using the name on the citation, they discovered pictures he had posted on social media of himself on the balcony at the pop star’s home.


Court documents obtained by TMZ show that Self told police he became obsessed with Del Rey while under the influence of hallucinogens.

After his release from jail Self will be on probation until 2021 and must spend a year in a residential program. He is also barred from going near Del Rey for ten years.

Self’s prison sentence is the latest in a list of troubling encounters Del Rey has had to endure with fans in recent months. Last week she obtained a restraining order against two Russian fans she claims had threatened her and screamed at her in public.

Del Rey moved house to avoid the fans but that her new home was soon discovered and the women “resumed sleeping outside her house and screaming her name in the middle of the night.” She subsequently hired a full-time bodyguard for protection.

Meanwhile, in December last year a man was arrested after allegedly stealing two of her cars.
