Kylie 'fine' despite letters pest
Kylie Minogue
Kylie Minogue has received unwanted attention before
Kylie Minogue is "fine" despite being harassed by an obsessed fan sending her annoying letters.

Police are investigating the source of mail sent to the singer's west London home and her record company's offices.

A report in The Sun said the letters included death threats and had forced the 35-year-old Australian to "live in fear".

But a spokeswoman for Minogue denied this. She said: "There have been no death threats.

"But letters of an annoying nature have been reported to the police and are being investigated.

Investigation ongoing

"The situation has simply been blown out of proportion. I spoke to her this morning and she is her usual self, absolutely fine and happy as ever."

One of the singer's managers reported the letters, which have a West Country postmark, to police last week.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "An allegation of harassment was reported at Fulham police station on September 18 on behalf of a Chelsea woman.

"An investigation is ongoing at Fulham CID and at this stage there have been no arrests."

In April last year, Minogue said she had been stalked by a fan for five years.

Even her shopping trips were tracked, she admitted, but added: "I'm sure he means no harm."
