Paige Spiranac, the sexy golfer: “Threatened, I’m not going out anymore”
Maxim magazine named her the sexiest woman in the world, but golfer Paige Spiranac is now afraid to leave the house. In fact, there are too many episodes of harassment and stalking with which she found herself having to deal. Like what happened at the recent American Century Championship, where a fan of her threatened her after accusing her of cheating him for $ 10,000.
During the last episode of her podcast "Playing A Round", as reported by the NYPost, Spiranac explained that a fan approached her to ask for a photo, but the threats soon began: "Apparently, this 'man was scammed by a fake profile created by someone […] It was a very scary situation and luckily I had my team there, so I called my agent who tried to manage it ”.
It is not the first time that the golfer has faced a difficult situation involving "angry" and "hostile" male fans. "I've been dealing with these security issues for a while and things have gotten worse in the last couple of months. These men are being scammed by fake profiles, fake numbers […] and then they come to see me or contact me and they are very hostile, very angry because they have been scammed for a lot of money, or they think we were having an affair and that I am gone. And the scariest part is the fact that all these profiles are anonymous and it's hard to find out who these people are […] ”.
Spiranac explained that she has changed her social media habits to increase her confidence, especially when she is in public: “I have gotten to the point where I will go to events and not publish my position. I don't publish where I am […] because I'm so afraid that someone will turn up like what happened at ACC ". Also for this reason he declared not to leave the house much, just to avoid scary encounters with fans: "I'm starting to feel that I live in this bubble and this is something I've never really experienced before and I don't have the resources or the money. to always protect myself with safety ".
