Canadian rocker Bryan Adams was pissed when news that he had a stalker was leaked to the British media especially since he was in the grip of fear over the situation.
In a written statement regarding media ethics in the UK, Adams revealed how he turned to police after a male Romanian fan and his mother began harassing Adams at his home in London.
The rocker did not discuss the incident with anyone other than his personal assistant, and intimated that he believes that the cops leaked details to The Sun.
The "Cuts Like a Knife" singer said, "I was shocked to discover that news of the stalking was reported in The Sun… I had not consented to this information being made public and I was very annoyed that what I saw as a private issue was being reported without my knowledge or consent. Although I have no proof, and therefore it is of course speculation, I do not believe that there could be any other explanation than the fact that the source must have been someone related to my call to the police."
He also wrote, "If information of this sort is to be released, it should be done so for proper public interest reasons, not to satisfy a desire for gossip. There should be a proper procedure so that the rights of victims of crime can be balanced against the public interest and any decision to release information can then be justified later."
