Depeche Mode Star Sued for Stalker Assault
Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan was forced to pay $40,000 to a male stalker who drove him to violence. The stalker, known only as Roy, insisted on holding all-night vigils outside Gahan's house -- until the singer head-butted him and broke his nose. Gahan says, "You'd look out the window at four in the morning and Roy would still be standing there. I ended up assaulting him -- well, I head-butted him and broke his nose. And I actually got sued! He sued me for $500,000 and he ended up getting $40,000. He claimed I gave him brain damage, but he was pretty [bleep] up to start with."
And here I always figured those Depeche Mode guys were pussies.
