Logan Paul has said that he has ’empathy’ for a ‘stalker’ after learning that a man, who once ‘broke into his house’, has reportedly ‘died by suicide’.
Appearing in an interview with TMZ, the WWE wrestler spoke on how the man, reportedly known as Tahj Deondre Speight, who was ‘obsessed with him’, once tresspassed in his home ‘without authorisation’.
According to the YouTuber, the man’s entrance resulted in a confrontation, with Paul ‘detaining the trespasser’ and had ‘wrestled him to the ground’ before calling the police.
Speaking in a video published on the streaming platform five years ago, Paul stated that he ‘was going to press charges’ against the Speight.
But during an interview on ‘TMZ Investigates: Obsessed and Dangerous: Hollywood’s Stalker Crisis’ which will be released on Monday, it was revealed to Paul that the man had subsequently passed away, with the outlet stating that the trespasser had apparently ‘died by suicide’.
