Man cleared of stalking Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts

A man has been cleared of stalking Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts outside the Heart radio studios in Leicester Square. Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts told

Croydon Magistrates’ Court she “didn’t feel safe” after the man who believed they were dating turned up repeatedly outside her place of work, a court heard. Lewis Langley,

47, was accused of obsessively pursuing the former Strictly Come Dancing star over five months last year. The court heard he regularly loitered outside the Heart radio

studios in Leicester Square where Ms Roberts works as a DJ, turning up early in the morning and when her show was due to end. It was also claimed Langley sat outside a

residential building in Borough where he believed the star lived, telling people she was “his girlfriend”. He was charged with two counts of stalking but cleared on both

allegations following a day-long trial. But the judge did make made a three-year restraining order, banning Langley from contacting Ms Roberts directly or indirectly or

going within 50 metres of Global Radio. Giving evidence via videolink, Ms Roberts said she was left feeling “very uncomfortable” thanks to Langley’s activities. “I

didn’t feel safe, I felt uncomfortable walking around, looking over my shoulder to make sure he wasn’t around or following me”, she said. “I was told his belief system was

that we were in a relationship together.” Ms Roberts said she noticed Langley as she arrived for and left work, seeing him “staring, smiling, giggling to himself, blowing

kisses”.
