Jennifer Lawrence Alleged Stalker Arrested After Harassing Star’s Family
Jennifer Lawrence is the latest celebrity to be targeted by a scary alleged stalker — a man who hounded the actress’ brother Blaine and called himself the star’s “husband for life.”
Han Cong Zhao, a 23-year-old Vancouver man (see below), was charged with interstate stalking and repeated harassing phone communications after being held for psychiatric evaluation. The FBI says Cong began contacting Blaine Lawrence in April through phone calls and text messages, demanding to be put in touch with Jennifer and threatening that “bad things” could happen to the Lawrences.
In subsequent emails, Cong allegedly referred to himself as the Oscar winner’s “husband for life” and declared that while he “wouldn’t kill anyone for sure,” he intended to create chaos if Blaine continued to ignore him. On April 18, he flew to Louisville to track down Blaine, reportedly saying, “Either I find out, or you come and see me, okay? You got me really upset. When I’m, when I’m upset, let’s see what happens, alright?”
Cong caught a cab to a local police station in suburban Louisville, asked for the home address of Lawrence’s mother, at which point law enforcement officials detained him for a three-hour interview, during which Cong called himself the second coming of Jesus Christ. He was hospitalized and ultimately arrested and charged upon his release from care. Very scary.
