Celebs Who Have Been Stalked

Hoskins, who previously served a 10-year prison sentence for stalking Madonna, "walked away" from Metropolitan State Hospital on February 3, according to a police statement. The 54-year-old is reportedly "highly psychotic when not taking his medication and has very violent tendencies."

According to internet reports, Hoskins has also threatened Halle Berry, which may have contributed to the actress' desire to move to France with daughter Nahla.
