This means they may stalk you, find out where you live, follow you, and sometimes eenn worse, they may try to attack you. Don’t take our word for it, here are at least 20 celeb stalkers that are true stories.
You’ll come under scrutiny
Have you ever stood on the scales and thanked your lucky stars nobody was looking over your shoulder? Then you might find the celebrity life quite difficult.

Journalists and tabloid newspapers are always willing to pay for an exclusive story about the latest famous celebrity.

They will publish the claims regardless if they think the information will sell their product. There is no getting away from the fact that you will need a large legal team to handle those matters. Also, you need to be in a mindset where you don’t care what other people think.
