UPDATE: Paula Abdul’s stalker found dead

November 12th, 2008 // 50 Comments

A woman was found dead outside Paula Abdul’s home last night and police believe she is a stalker who they’ve dealt with “numerous times before.” The woman’s body was discovered in her car and a drug overdose is the likely cause of death. TMZ reports:

An LAPD spokesperson said the parents of the victim believe their daughter was a “big fan” of Paula’s. Whether this has anything to do with the victim’s death is unclear, but it seems more than a coincidence her body was found just yards from Paula’s home.

There’s no evidence of foul play. The victim has not yet been ID’d. We’re told Paula was not home and possibly shooting for “American Idol.”

Stalkers today have no heart. There used to be a time when you left your drug habit at home next to the giant bag of toenail clippings. Otherwise, well, this happens which is just embarrassing. I mean, at least drown yourself in the celeb’s pool wearing a wedding dress or something. Show some initiative for crying out loud.

UPDATE: TMZ has identified the woman as Paula Goodspeed who auditioned for American Idol in 2005 and apparently snapped from being rejected.

    The evil genius Abdul strikes yet again…

  2. evainbaby

    Paula Abdul has fans??? @_@

  3. Why cant the same faith happen to my stalkers from this site?

  4. I think I would kill myself too if I was reduced to stalking Paula Abdul.

    I’m with fish on this one. Stalking used to be a classy affair. Now its all about the drugs and the money.

    The stalker was looking for a fix, and the pharmacy was closed. She thought Paula may have had some extra stash, but Paula wouldn’t share, and the stalker got some bad street drugs. Case solved!

    It wasn’t that stupid fucking cat was it ?

  8. Deacon Jones

    She must’ve listened to her latest single.

  9. blp

    FAKE! Paula Abdul having a stalker lol

  10. ChuckleHead

    Paula Abdul… the next OJ???

  11. rollersnakes

    WHERE does she buy her clothes? She always looks like she’s wearing something from Charlotte Russe or some other cheap, teenage clothing store. Can’t she afford a stylist?

  12. Guy

    Its just the way that you love me

  13. flabergast

    SHIT…. I wish you would fix your rss feed to properly display the photos
    its been like this for a month, get off your ass fish

  14. A true passionate stalker would have taken the drugs and died on her doorstep naked..

  15. Dura

    I bet she OD’d on Paula’s left over pills she found lying around.
    That or took her life as she had a moment of clarity realizing that she waisted that much time stalking Paula Abdul.

  16. Miss Kitty

    Jeez, she probably paid for a stalker, then they topped themselves when the check she wrote bounced…

  17. Jrz

    Remember the good old days when stalkers did the murder-suicide thing? Shame this one was a renaissance stalker.

  18. Sport

    The poor lady was camped outside Paula’s home and eventually saw Paula without makeup I am told.

    “The victim has not yet been ID’d” it says. How can that be when “the parents of the victim believe their daughter was a big fan of Paula’s.” I mean, if they know who the parents are, then they should also have been able to ID the girl. Great policework. Or maybe just a stupid journalist. I’d expected you to have picked it up, Superficial writer!

    From TMZ
    We’ve learned the identity of the dead woman, Paula Goodspeed, who appeared on Season 5 in 2006. During her audition she said she’s an artist and the first pic she ever drew was of Paula Abdul. “Idol” produced a 3 minute and 40 second featurette on Goodspeed and her passion for Paula. She did not make the cut, after Ryan Seacrest proclaimed, “And the love affair is over.”

  21. Cash

    She probably got into Paula’s stash and, thinking they were her super awesome Paula pills, chowed down as soon as she got back to her car. Jokes on her I guess.

    Paula’s comments to the fan:

    You were really great. You look wonderful. I love your shoes. I liked the big finish. I think you can win this competition…. I’m speechless.

  23. Here’s the clip…she sucks..

  24. #24 copycat..

    I had to find out who this chick was cause I was hoping it was that crazt sparkle bitch, you know, the one that wanted to be a vet, and yet her dog hid under the bed the whole time, oh well, she’ll probably kill herself soon enough

  25. Balls McCoy

    Paula was her usually superficial cunty self actually. And that Goodspeed chick was kinda pretty and had a smoking body but you could see there was something “off” about her. After Simon ripped her like a 5th grader she got all bi-polar.

  26. Ted from LA

    Did anyone not see this coming? The reason people watch this show is to watch the three judges laugh at and mock the mentally unstable people who can’t sing yet think they can. I’m thinking of starting a reality show were my friends and I go to psychiatric wards and make shit out of the patients. That would be just as humane. Watch that video linked above and tell me that’s not heartless… and that goes for all three of them.

  27. It is a sad story all around but I guess in a lot of ways it could have been worse such as the young lady trying to take Paula with her in the final act.

  28. p0nk

    Goodspeed died of a drug OD? oh the irony.

    and 28, no that final act would have gotten her a posthumous nobel.

  29. Randal

    From early on, Paula showed the world her ability to dance with her talented ability to choreograph a group in early to mid 80′s music videos. From there, her talent continued to grow as she burst out into the music industry with such vibrant and hard hitting songs as Cold Hearted Snake and Opposites Attract.

    Since then, Paula has remained in the musical industry as a staple and inspiration to other artists trying to get their foot in the door.

    You are as beautiful as your music, Paula.

    Randal

  30. #27 – That’s a fantastic idea. Can I be on your reality show?

    I soooo want Simon Cowell’s job! I could make merciless fun of talentless whack-jobs every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

    And you are dead right, (no pun intended) – the reason I watch the show is to see the judges mock and laugh at the fruit cakes. That’s absolutely dead accurate, (okay I lied – those puns were intended). As a matter of fact, I can barely stand to sit through the good singers, and their happy reactions when they hear they are going to Hollywood – boring!

    I wonder if I hang around outside Simon Cowell’s house whether he’ll let me sit on the judging panel?

    And I just knew some bleeding-heart would try to argue that it was somehow the judge’s fault that this girl is a psycho.

    I’m surrounded 24/7 by politically correct mollycoddling arseholes who create these delusional dipshits by insulating them against the real world from birth. So go ahead wuss-boy, you and your limp-wristed mates keep setting them up, and I’ll laugh my arse off as I watch Simon, Paula and Randy knock them down. Self-destructive behaviour by shitty contestants who can’t deal with reality is music to my ears.

  31. bootlips

    Oh my God, I can’t believe Paula Abdul said she was speechless in that video. I’m a genius.

  32. el ces

    That sucks.
    Why with the drugs though? Even being rejected on Idol will make you famous if you angle it right.
    If I had that, I’d bring a clip of Simon shitting on my performance to every job interview. You’d get hired and promoted just on novelty.

  33. meee

    i don’t think you can “snap” due to rejection three years after the fact

  34. timmy the dying boy

    There goes her fan base!

  35. TS

    Darwinism at it’s finest

  36. Here is the video of her audition.

    I mean what is the big secret?
    I found her in less than 5 minutes on the internet where as the TV media trys to make it such a big secret,oh yeah she looks like she had major issues,but seemed to have more of an issue with Simon rather than Paula.
    Im sure it really was a drug deal gone bad,pretty sure both Paulas were lighting the stem together.Just wondering if she turned her down for a one night stand.LMAO

  37. Grandma

    What was this womans name? I had read in the paper that it was a woman that tried out for american idol.

    No overdose….. she died of acute massive alcohol poisoning when Paula snuck up behind her and breathed in her face………….

  40. Brown-Eyed Grrl

    Has anyone questioned MC Skat Kat?

  41. agreee w/ meee

    Yeah, you would have to be a massive passive aggressive basket case to work yourself into enough of a huge slathering metal mouthed frenzy over being rejected by Paula and friends to actually freaking ingest enough drugs to kill yourself on purpose while positioned just outside Paula’s home to make sure you martyrize yourself as the idol contestant who couldn’t take the truth from her unappreciative public since you have no other redeeming qualities in life except dressing like a freakin’ gypsy and calling it “something not everyone can pull off.” Coward. Loser. I can’t take the truth so I’m just gonna kill myself. Loser. I just hate people like that. Paula Abdul is so much better that you. All you did was try to piggy back off Paula then you tried to steal her celebrity with you sick suicide stunt. Don’t feel sorry for this lunatic. Watch the video. This is a cut off my own nose to spite my face type of person. What a harsh, evil heart, it’s even worse than mine.

  42. Marie Martins

    a girl lost her life last night. Two days ago she was alive, like all of us, and now she’s gone. Making light of this tragedy is so wrong.

  43. MichDave

    Guess I’m just old fashioned..but I’ve read most of the comments and this is one cold bunch. That was an actual living human person so troubled that she took her own life. How come we don’t care about that anymore? Are we that angry at our own lives that we need people to degrade just to feel better?

  44. I feel bad for paula I don’t think it was her fault I mean hey the girl couldn’t sing and I am a fan of paula too but I don’t stalk her or any other celeberty that I may like Paula was not the cause of Goodspeeds death it was Goodspeed herself’s fault not paula

  46. This is HORRIBLE. How can anyone make a joke out of this? Its mean! That was a living/breathing person and all of you are making jokes. SHUTUP. Honestly I feel sorry for Paula. That girl had problems and needed help. How would you feel if that was someone you knew? Would you want all these people talking about that person? THINK a little.

    I’m just glad that the stalker didn’t try to kill Paula, too. It’s okay to be a fan of someone, but not obsessively stalking them. I do feel bad for her, though.
