An obsessed Lana Del Rey fan who was found at her home last year (15) has been handed a jail sentence.

An obsessed fan who was found at Lana Del Rey's home last year (15) has been sentenced to 84 days in jail for stalking the singer.

Zachary Self entered the Video Games star's home in Malibu, California in November (15) while she was out, and he was found in her garage by construction workers on the property next to a notebook allegedly containing disturbing messages.

Self fled the scene but was eventually tracked down in December (15) by police who found pictures of Del Rey's home and obsessive notes on Self's social media pages.

The 19 year old, who claimed he was under the influence of drugs at the time, has now pleaded no contest to stalking and was sentenced to 84 days in prison, according to He will also be on probation for five years and he must stay away from Del Rey for the next 10 years.

The singer has endured further trouble with fans in recent months - she was granted three-year restraining orders against Nataliia Krinitsyna and Iuliia Vladimirovna earlier this month (Jan16) over fears for her safety.

She reportedly told a judge she has been forced to hire a full-time security guard.
