Nikki Sixx Shares FBI Is Now Investigating His Family’s Stalker
Motley Crue bassist, Nikki Sixx, has recently revealed that the FBI is currently doing an investigation regarding a stalker who aimed at his family. Sixx admitted that it was not the first time he encountered such a problem.
In an Instagram post, Sixx said:
“Like many other public figures, myself and my family were harassed and threatened by a stalker. A deranged woman from Tennessee, who I have never met or seen before, targeted my wife and child with threats of death and bodily harm. This was not some internet troll but someone who was convinced that she was somehow connected to me.”
He added that he had to go to court several times and obtain restraining orders as the stalker’s behavior grew “progressively more scary.” However, it was repeatedly violated which resulted in being held in contempt of court and arrested. Sixx continued:
“Now, another stalker from a different part of the country started doing the same thing, going so far as to travel to my house and threaten our lives again. The FBI is currently investigating.
“It’s one thing to threaten my safety, but when it comes to serious threats against my wife and children it just becomes beyond alarming. They do not deserve this. Thank you to the FBI, law enforcement, the detectives and the legal and court system for treating these threats with the severity and urgency they require.”
At the end of his post, Sixx mentioned that he “will go to any lengths to protect my family.”
Sixx has been very busy doing tours with his band, Motley Crue, which has performed throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania. Motley Crue carried out the continuation of the band’s world tour, which started last year, together with Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Last month, the band also released a Shout at the Devil 40th-anniversary box set, Year of the Devil.
