The Los Angeles Police Department have launched an official investigation after an obsessed fan bombarded Ashley Tisdale with more than 18,000 Twitter messages, and then showed up at her home. The 27-year-old actress was said to have been 'freaked out' after receiving 18,888 tweets from the stalker dating back to 2012. TMZ reports the LAPD have now launched a probe into the situation, and have already identified a potential suspect.
The mystery tweeter, who is believed to be a man, bombarded the High School Musical starlet with a series of creepy messages, which seem to insinuate that he is in some form of relationship with her.
One said: 'Let it all out on me u can have my heart put a lock on it throw away the key & my soul is yours to keep.'
Another added: 'My body is yours & even as friends I f****g love how I make u feel like mom maybe we both got issues cuz nobody’s perfect.'
A further message stated: 'I’ll never lose u baby even in 20 years til infinity you’ll always b my best friend.'
The obsessive stalker is even believed to have turned up at Ashley's Los Angeles home, but it is not known whether he was able to make contact with the former Disney star.
Police have since identified a suspect, and are now looking to talk to the person in question to identify whether they pose a serious risk to the Hollywood starlet or not.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Ashley Tisdalde for comment.
In spite of the drama surrounding her personal life, Ashley seemed to be in good spirits as she took to her Twitter page on Monday, writing: 'Don't stop. Get it get it #happymonday.'
Ashley has been dating Annie Automatic rocker Christopher French since late 2012, and recently cited 'communication' as the key to the success of her current relationship.
She said: 'I'm definitely old-school when it comes to dating. I'm not into the 'game' so much. If I like you, I'll confront you and be open about it. Then I expect you to come after me.
'Communication is so key. Especially in this business, I'm always traveling and doing something else. So I think communication is the foundation of it all.'
