Lana Del Rey Confirms Well-being After Kidnap Scare

Singer and song-writer Lana Del Rey took to her Twitter account on Sunday to update fans after her kidnap scare in Florida. Michael Hunt, 43, was arrested at Amway Center in Florida, where Del Rey was scheduled to perform, for allegedly plotting to kidnap the artist. Local police were alerted to the threat after an anonymous source called in to say Hunt had put up 'cryptic and threatening' posts on social media towards the singer. He was arrested moments before the singer came on stage.

'Hey kiddos. I’m doing fine thanks for the messages. And tomorrow we’ll be in Hotlanta can’t wait to see everyone. Yachty that means u.', wrote the 32-year-old.

Del Rey, whose real name is Elizabeth Grant, is currently on her LA To The Moon tour and is scheduled to get back to work on Monday in Atlanta, Georgia.  

Meanwhile, Michael Hunt was called in for a courtroom hearing on Sunday and the hearing ended with him being held without bond due to the judge being convinced he is a danger to the public.
