Lorde - Lorde hits out at 'stalker' photographer

Lorde has claimed a photographer has been ''stalking'' her.

The 17-year-old singer took to her Twitter account last night (03.05.14) to accuse Simon Runting of violating her privacy and subjecting her to fear.

The 'Royals' hitmaker shared a picture of the photographer along with the caption: ''this man has been stalking me, photographing me and refusing me privacy. i am scared of him. he frequents central akl (sic)''.

She added: ''this should not be an accepted standard for young women or anyone in this industry (sic)''.

She then posted a link to his private Facebook page before admitting that being photographed regularly comes with being famous, but she won't be frightened in the process.

She tweeted: ''i refuse to stay complicit and i refuse to stay passive about men systematically subjecting me to extreme fear.

''i understand that this comes with the territory. i do not understand why I should be complacent. (sic)''.

It is not known what sparked the online rant from Lorde, but this isn't the first time the photographer has angered a star.

Last year, Rihanna, 26, blasted Mr. Runting after he took photographs of her standing in her hotel room in Auckland, New Zealand, wrapped in a blanket.
