Billie Eilish Details The 'Traumatizing' Run-In She Had With An Obsessed Fan

Billie Eilish has sky-rocked to fame over the last year, but sadly, that fame comes at a price.

If you have no idea who Billie Eilish is, don't worry, you're about to.

The 17-year-old singer/songwriter has been working her way up the billboard charts with hits like 'Bad Guy' and 'Wish You Were Gay'.

In her short career, she's already earned seven gold and three platinum singles in the United States.

That's called success, sweetie. Look it up.

She recently made an appearance on the cover of Rolling Stone — a milestone moment for any musician.

In her interview, she dove into details about her rapidly growing career.

Of course, there are a lot of upsides to reaching her level of fame, but it also comes with a few drawbacks.

“I actually had to stop watching horror movies, because everything started flipping me out,” she said.

"I saw creatures outside my windows. I had sleep paralysis. I’m done with the fake s*** — real life is way too scary."

Eilish clarified she's always loved attention, but that some of it has become too much.

“I’ve loved attention my whole life, but I don’t think anyone knows what fame actually is."

"Because if I did want to be famous — it wasn’t this kind.”

However a few weeks ago, she came down with multiple rashes.

A doctor told her that it was her body’s way of telling her she was exhausted and needed to rest.

And recently, her family’s home address was leaked online.

Not long after the leak, three fans showed up in a single day.

This included a "creepy older guy", who drove all the way from San Diego.

Which is an absolutely not.

This feels like a good time to remind everybody that Billie is *only* 17-years-old.

She and her family were so alarmed by the incident that they had a bodyguard sleep on the living room couch.

“It was really traumatizing,” she said.

“I completely don’t feel safe in my house anymore, which sucks. I love my house.”

How awful and upsetting!

Sadly, Billie's run-in with obsessed "fans" aren't uncommon for celebrities these days.

Fortunately, everybody is safe, and all proper security measures were taken.

Here's hoping her career continues to grow without any more traumatizing run-ins with stalkers!
