A stalker who believed Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts was his girlfriend kissed her as she left the radio station where she works, a court has heard.
Lewis Langley, 47, is said to have regularly ‘loitered’ outside the building in Leicester Square, central London, where he would do exercise routines including high kicks and jogging.
On one occasion in October last year, he allegedly followed the former Strictly Come Dancing star, 41, as she left to get into his waiting car before kissing her through the window .
He is said to have regularly attended the DJ’s workplace in the early hours of the morning when Ms Roberts arrived, during a campaign of harassment between May and October last year.
Langley, of Thornton Heath, south London, is also accused of attending an address in Borough, central London, where he believed Roberts lived, where he would sit in a chair overlooking the building.
He is on trial at Croydon Crown Court, where he denies harassing Ms Roberts.
Prosecutors offered no evidence on another harassment charge against Borough building manager Anna Olivera after the complainant refused to testify if she could be seen by reporters in court.
Prosecutor Alex Alawode said: “The defendant believed he was in a relationship with Ms Roberts, being a member of the girl band Pussycat Dolls and currently a radio DJ in central London.”
He said Langley would attend the radio studio around 6 a.m. when he arrived and wait nearby until he got off work.
“The accused was caught on CCTV on several occasions and was seen doing exercise routines outside the building by high kicking or running,” Alawode said.
Langley is said to have left the property outside the building in Borough, then told police he was in a relationship with Ms Roberts, with whom he had made arrangements via social media, but she was ignoring him .
Langley was arrested in August last year and detained under the Mental Health Act, but began returning to Ms Roberts’ workplace in October last year.
Mr Alawode said on one occasion he “followed her as she got into her waiting vehicle as she left work”.
“He was following alongside this vehicle and blowing kisses to the window, which were believed to be aimed directly at Ms Roberts.”
The prosecutor said: “The accused claims that he was not stalking the complainant but that he had good reasons to be in these places.”
