Panic! At The Disco lead singer Brendon Urie has notified fans on Twitter that he was forced to purchase a new home after feeling unsafe in his old house (that had a public address).
His full Twitter message says:
"Three years ago I bought a house. A dream home, really. I had a studio built in part of the house, wrote an album there, jumped off the roof into the pool countless times. It was incredible.
Also during that time, since my address was public, I would receive letters and/or gifts from fans. This never bothered me. But as time progressed, so did the amout of letters. Not just letters and gifts, this soon changed into visits and constant harassment from fans. It got so bad that I didn't feel safe in my own home.
So it's with this statement that I'm announcing I have moved on from what was once a safe place.
I only hope this sheds lights on what inappropriate behavior looks like. Boundaries are boundaries for a reason. Everyone has a right to feel safe and everyone has an obligation to be happy. So I'm taking my family somewhere that might make this a possibility.
Thank you, old house, for giving me a creative space and for lending me a place of rest, even if just for short periods of time.
That being said, I would LOVE to continue reading your letters and gifts. So I leave you with an address nowhere near me that I'll have checked periodically. Thank you, love ya.
901 N Fairfax Ave, #176, Los Angeles, CA 90046-7203
Farewell, old house.
