Harry Styles stalker who bombarded pop star with 8,000 cards is jailed

A woman who bombarded singer Harry Styles with 8,000 cards in less than a month during a stalking campaign has been jailed.

Myra Carvalho, 35, sent wedding cards to the One Direction star’s home and also penned him handwritten letters, Harrow crown court was told.

She arrived in the UK last December in her pursuit of Styles, and had been staying in a backpacker’s hostel in Earl’s Court.

After pleading guilty to stalking, Carvalho was jailed for 14 weeks and banned from contacting Styles for the next ten years.

Under the terms of a restraining order, Carvalho is also prohibited from attending any of the singer’s concerts or going to locations where she knows he is.

Carvalho, a Brazilian national, travelled to the UK without the knowledge of her family.

She pleaded guilty to stalking involving serious alarm or distress, and was also ordered to pay a £134 victim surcharge.

It is the second stalking ordeal endured by Styles.

In 2019, he was persistently pursued by Diana Tarazaga-Orero after offering to buy food when he saw they were sleeping rough near to his north London home.

Tarazaga-Orero pushed money and notes through his letterbox and tried to grab Styles as he went out for a jog.

Styles told a court he had been left “scared” by the attention and was forced to upgrade his security, including installing a panic lock on his bedroom door.

Tarazaga-Orero then, in 2022, broke a restraining order by barging into Styles’ home.
