It seems as though bringing her television empire to the Big Apple may have turned out to be more than what Tyra Banks bargained for.
According to published reports, the 'America's Next Top Model' diva and daily talk show host is reportedly living in fear of a hulking stalker who's been terrorizing her for months and was set free by a judge last week.
A 37-year-old stalker named Brady Green has been nipping at Banks' heels for the past few months and was arrested last week for doing so.
Cops and prosecutors said that the Dublin, Georgia native has hounded Banks with multiple letters and phone calls since early January. He even started sending her flowers and showing up to the set of her Los Angeles studio.
On March 18, Green showed up at the New York City studio where the former Victoria's Secrets spokesmodel films her daily talk show. Carrying a large duffel bag stuffed with magazine write-ups about Banks and notes to himself about his various attempts to reach her, the tall, dark and husky man asked to speak to her but was immediately cleared from the premises after cops were called.
The New York Post reports that a source spotted Green, just a few hours later, sitting across the street in a window seat at a McDonald's, drinking coffee and flipping through one of his magazines.
Green told police he was homeless, although he appeared clean and dressed in neat, casual clothing, they said. Cops arrested him in the restaurant and charged him with stalking, harassment and criminal trespass.
Adding to Banks' anxiety, Judge Anthony Ferrara released him on his own recognizance -- but issued an order of protection for Banks.
