Earlier this year Nabeel Waseem allegedly visited her grandma’s house in South Shields, after 23-year-old Jade posted on Instagram about spending the night at ‘nana’s’.

Nabeel, 33, was cleared of stalking this week and given a restraining order, meaning he has to stay away from the Little Mix singer.

It’s reported that when police told former Harrods employee Nabeel he would have to go through Jade’s management to get in touch with her, he did just that.

He is alleged to have claimed he was dying of epilepsy and wished to work for Little Mix.

During a hearing at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court this week, prosecutor Clare Irving said: “[Jade] felt nervous, unsettled, scared for her own safety and that of her family. She felt harassed and in fear of physical violence.”

However Geoffrey Forrester, for the defence, claimed Nabeel never intended to cause harm or fear.

He said: “[Nabeel] cannot plead guilty because he doesn’t accept he has done anything wrong. His motives were entirely well-intended. He wishes nothing but the very best for the group.”

Mr Forrester also claimed his client had never been in the same town as Black Magic hit maker Jade.
