Madonna Stalker Escapes Mental Hospital

Truth rating: 10


Robert Dewey Hoskins, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for stalking Madonna and threatening to kill her in the 1990s, has escaped from a mental hospital and remains at large.

In a statement, The Los Angeles Police Department said Hoskins “is a very psychotic man when not taking his medication and has very violent tendencies.”

According to officials, Hoskins simply walked away from the facility, where he’d been placed after a July 2011 arrest for vandalism following his release for the Madonna-related offenses.

In 1996, he was convicted and sentenced to a decade behind bars after scaling a wall around Madonna’s Hollywood Hills residence, claiming that she was supposed to be his wife, and threatening to slit her throat “from ear to ear” if he couldn’t have her.

He was shot twice by security guards.

Madonna testified during his trial, recounting that she’d had nightmares about Hoskins,

Even after his incarceration, Hoskins continued to threaten Madonna in prison interviews, and has made similarly violent statements about Halle Berry.
