Given the massive career boost she’s experienced over the past year, it’s no wonder Lorde is having a difficult time adjusting to her newfound fame.

However, the 17-year-old “Royals” songstress is convinced that a New Zealand-based photographer named Simon Runting is unlawfully stalking her.

On Saturday (May 3), Lorde took to her Twitter account to make the world aware of her ongoing plight with the paparazzo.

She tweeted photos of Runting along with the message, “This man has been stalking me, photographing me and refusing me privacy. I am scared of him. I refuse to stay complicit and I refuse to stay passive about men systematically subjecting me to extreme fear.”

Lorde, who had to cancel a string of Australian tour dates due to a ‘nasty chest infection’ also wrote, “I understand that this comes with the territory. i do not understand why I should be complacent.”
