You may have read recently about Frank Tufaro, a 32 year-old unemployed New York artist, who showed up uninvited at Kate Bush's seaside country estate in Devon. Although he appeared at the door on December 26, the story has been kept quiet until now.
Frank came bearing a gift: a $5,000 Tiffany ring made of gold, diamonds and sapphires. His goal? To propose marriage.
The UK media is on the story but some Kate Bush fans have been documenting things for weeks. This is truly bizarre--and frightening.
First, how it Tufaro find the reclusive Kate's home? GPS coordinates he downloaded. He just fed them to the cab driver, who took him to the house on a £240 fare.
Kate wasn't home at the time, so Frank broke a window and let himself in. But then after about eight minutes, he says panic took over so he ran away. Neighbours called the cops who responded in force (including a helicopter) and grabbed Tufaro as he lugged his suitcase down a country road.
When asked what his deal was, Tufaro replied that he'd been obsessed with Kate since he first became aware of her as a teenager.
His appearance at her door wasn't exactly unannounced, either. He'd sent her a long string of tweets and emails proclaiming his love and his intentions of asking for her hand in marriage.
He flew to Heathrow before checking in to the ultra-modern boutique W Hotel in London’s Leicester Square, where the best suites cost up to £6,000 a night.
During his stay Tufaro recorded a video as he danced around his luxury room in a tracksuit while singing along to hip-hop songs.
At one point he unlocked a safe to reveal the gift-wrapped ring as he shouted: ‘Boom! Badda! That’s how I roll.’
Upon arrest, Tufaro was detained until the Mental Health Act before being deported back the US on January 6.
Perhaps someone should look at the tweets sent out by someone with the Twitter handle @frankster411. This sample stream of tweets--available for anyone to see with a simple Twitter search--begins December 19.
are you in london...your neighbor with the alzhiemers and his partner caught me jumping the fence out and said u were in london
was cool to see it in person..i went around and got there and jumped the fence all the doors were locked except for the back car door
car smelled like it hadn't been used in a while...i didn't like that much..it was sad to see the house like that..i envisioned it being
but it was as dead as a door nail
i ended up in a field high above ur house it was freezing rain and wind and i was running in mud and soaked
it looked like there was some baby toys or something...looked kind of rundown..maybe its just summer place or something but i felt sad 4 u
i saw ur easel and some paint stuff

Your security systems are really hilarious. I jumped that fence in three seconds.

Also if u wanna have any imput on tatoos u will have to show ur support with real dollars...I was considering a kb Tatoo but it...
Will u help me with the various cost involved in getting a music career going, once I return to new York?

I'm so in love with u
Danny just texted me and said it's impossible to tell the difference between ur asshole and pussy
well, when ur ready to make a commitment and actually be with me in person ...then i wont let anything bad happen to u ever...i promise
@katebushmusic what happened with all of my christmas presents?
It's time for Kate bush to start investing her own money into this project cause me and my family are really close to totally broke
Could SIr Elton John and Sir Steven Fry reach out to Kate and ask her to either financially reimburse 4 my losses & project expenses moving
Forward or stop hacking into all my devices and accts and leave me alone or let me crash at her house. Thanks for ur help with this
@katebushmusic so dont get it twisted mama.im the star hear & Im only letting u have a piece of my world & when i cut u off its a nightmare
@KateBushMusic where u being truthful when u said u had acquired over 80 gigs of data from me as a result of u persuing me for last 2 years?
@katebushmusic well u cant respond cause uve been oficialy deleted. considering the result id guess u'd opt 4 a diferent batch o baby batter
@katebushmusic if u had 2 do it all over again would u use a different sperm donor to conceive young Arnold Bertie?
@katebushmusic when is u & ur dildo's anniversary? ill send u some disinfectant spray so you can wash that thing off (vomits on keyboard)
@katebushmusic ur just another person 2 me when ur not hacked in2 my stuff. how do u feel about not having privileged access to me? nervous?
@katebushmusic when do i get half of your dough?
@katebushmusic HA UVE BEEN KICKED OUT OF ALL MY DEVICES AGAIN! VICTORY U FUCKIN SCUMBAG!!!
@katebushmusic i seem to have no legal recourse and no one is willing to step in on my behalf and so the longer this continues the greater @katebushmusic the chances that u will end up dead or in the hospital
@katebushmusic im starving...i think if i had the opportunity right now i would put a bullet in ur head and just deal with the consequences @katebushmusic i want the money back that u made me falsely spend and i want u to stop hacking into my personal prop and stop harassing me
