Stacy Beshear, 34, of El Segundo, CA has been charged with stalking the Lakers’ Luke Walton. The forward tells the Orange County Register’s Kevin Ding that Beshear’s behavior went from the merely weird (claiming Jordan Farmar was interested in her) to the downright fucked up (“she contorted her face in anger, stuck her arm out her car window, curled her hand to make it look like a gun and shot make-believe bullets at him”)
“It’s bananas,” Walton said in an exclusive interview with The Register. “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?
“You try not to think about it. But every time I see a black Honda now, I’m like, ‘Is that her?’ I’ll slow down and look. It’s like every day. There are a billion of these cars. Since I’ve noticed her, I’ve noticed these cars are everywhere. It’s like I’m going paranoid like some movie character.”
“When she pulled up to my house and started yelling at me after she fired a fake gun at me, I couldn’t help but to start yelling back at her,” Walton said. “She was in my driveway. But when we were interacting, I could tell by the stuff she was saying that she’s not all there in the head “ which makes me feel bad for her. At the same time, most people who go on killing sprees are people who aren’t all there in the head.”
“She told me that we belong together,” Walton said. “And then she started flipping out about all sorts of stuff. She said she wanted to move to San Diego, but people wouldn’t let her. I was like, ‘What people?’ She’s like, ‘The people! The people in the universe! They won’t let me move, because they say you and I are supposed to be together.’ I was like, ‘Oh, wow. She’s crazy.”
Not to diminsh the seriousness of Walton’s claim, but at least half the women I’ve dated have exhibited similar tendencies. Especially the part about saying Jordan Farmar wanted ask them out.
