Before today, we might have called ourselves supermodel stalkers (seriously, we still obsess over videos of Gisele from 2004) but with this latest bit of news, we think that we ought to coin a new phrase for our fixation. Russian model Irina Shayk, who covered the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue two years ago, and counts soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo as her beau, has filed two police reports against an alleged stalker.
Over the last two years, the man has repeatedly been seen around Shayk’s building. In one instance, she came home to find him inside her apartment, but she managed to escape safely and call 911. Also, in typical stalker fashion, the creeper showers her with gifts, flowers, and other presents she never asked for.
After another run-in this Sunday, she filed yet another complaint and is finally filing for a restraining order. While there’s a part of us that understands why this guy singled Shayk — blame it on that nothing-left-to-the-imagination gown she wore in Cannes — and we can’t help but wonder if the perp headed straight for Shayk’s shoe closet like Woogie from There’s Something About Mary. Here’s hoping justice is served and the lovely lady gets some peace of mind.
