PUSSYCAT Dolls singer Ashley Roberts "didn't feel safe" after being targeted by a stalker who showed up at her work, a court heard.
Lewis Langley allegedly "loitered" outside Global Radio where the singer works and blew kisses at her.
He also believed they were in a "romantic relationship", Croydon Crown Court was told.
The 47-year-old became known as "the martial artist" by security guards in Leicester Square because of his bizarre exercise routines, it was said.
Ashley, 41, told the court today she felt "very uncomfortable" by Langley's behaviour.
She added: “I didn’t feel safe. I didn’t feel comfortable walking around.

"I was looking over my shoulder to make sure he wasn’t around or following me.”
Asked about what made her feel uncomfortable, she said: “His behaviour, his mannerisms. His look and giggling at me, lunges at me.
“Sometimes he was just standing there smiling, giggling. At one point he blew a kiss at my car.”
She estimated she saw him around 15 times between May and October last year after she became aware of him.

But the singer added: “He was there quite often. I didn’t count. I just tried to get in and out of the building.”
Langley was detained under the Mental Health Act in August last year but began returning to Ashley's workplace in October.
Police informed the star Langley believed they were in a relationship it was said.
Ashley said her concerns grew after receiving the information as she did not know what he would be "capable of".
The court was told security measures were ramped up at the radio HQ – including Ashley being walked to and from her car.
Langley also allegedly repeatedly showed up at an address in Borough where he believed Ashley lived.
The court was told he would sit on a chair just staring into the building.
Prosecutor Alex Alawode said: "The defendant states he was not stalking the complainant but had good reason to be at those locations."
The trial continues.
