Paris Hilton's recent stalker scare has left the socialite so terrified, she has spent a fortune on new security measures to make sure she can keep obsessed fans away from her home.
The hotel heiress and reality TV star praised her bodyguards for their quick reactions as they dealt with a potential threat over the Independence Day holiday (04Jul11) when James Rainford, who is banned from going within 200 yards (183 metres) of the star, was arrested outside her Malibu, California estate.
Rainford, who has pleaded not guilty to a charge of violating a protective order, was the same man who attacked Hilton's then-boyfriend Cy Waits outside a Los Angeles courthouse earlier this year (11).
Although she boasted she has "a great security system and four 24-hour bodyguards" after the Independence Day scare, Hilton now admits she fears no security measures will be able to keep her safe from a determined predator.
She says, "It's scary because you don't know what sort of frame of mind these people are in... I have had to put a whole new security system in, I have to have armed guards on the beachfront and on the Pch (Pacific Coast Highway) to guard my house."
