Luke Walton’s Stalker Wanted to Marry Him

by Marcel Mutoni

Last season, Luke Walton had to worry about more than just keeping Phil and Kobe happy; he literally had to sleep with one eye open because he was being stalked by a deranged fan (who claimed the two were supposed to get married).

A 34-year old woman was arrested last month and charged with stalking the Lakers forward. After months of harassment, Walton finally decided to get the cops involved after she made a menacing gesture towards him. From the OC Register:

“It’s bananas,” said Walton. “I’ll be going to sleep at night and just randomly look out the window. Just to check. Just because. She has been out there at 12:30, 1:30 in the morning. She would park outside my house for hours and hours.”

“I would drive out, and I would see her peeking through. It would suck, because I know I’m leaving my home, and I know she’s still there. What am I supposed to do? Is she planning on breaking in? Am I going to come home one day and she’s sleeping in my bed? Is she going to steal my dog?”

As wild as that story may be, I’m actually surprised it doesn’t happen more often. The world is certainly not lacking crazies.

    I’m more surprised he’s not the one doing the stalking. Who’d a thunk a dead-head offspring is hot? We need pics of this stalker …

    Isn’t that what stalkers do? Want to marry the object of their obsession?

  • andrew

    Froggie – he must seem more attainable than the rest of the squad. Which begs the question, why not go for anyone on the Clippers?

    from the same article:

    Here are a couple posts from an Internet message board about Walton:


    From Luke’sgirl4ever: “wow those eyes that adorable smile. every time i see Luke dribble down that court i totally melt. i have been a Luke Walton fan for a while now and i want to meet him so bad and go on a date w/ him. we would be perfect together.”

    He’s just so dreamy! And he’s got the hook up to some sweet greenery.

    Has he had his dog stolen before? What a bizarre thing to worry about.

  • Squirrel7

    I think I may need a new keyboard, I spluttered Diet Coke all over it after reading his fears for his dog!

    This is really stupid. I, for one, will make sure to drug and kidnap Luke and bring him to Vegas to marry him, not just sit outside his house.

    It’s actually not 34 years old woman. It was Britney (Spears).
    This was all just a PR move

    who stalks Luke Walton? And if somebody appreciates him that much, then why didnt Luke marry her.

  • jay

    this is breaking the stalkers’ code of conduct,on so many levels. the lady is obviously an amateur.

    it doesn’t matter if you guys think luke walton is hot or not. he’s a celebrity; there are bound to be crazies out there. maybe lamar odom sicced the girl on him so luke would want to be traded?
