A man has appeared in court charged with stalking South Shields Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall.
Nabeel Waseem, 33, of Broadwater Road, Wandsworth, London, faced the charges at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
He was released on conditional bail until February 23.
His conditions of bail state that he must not attempt to contact Jade, 23, either directly or indirectly, attend any event involving Little Mix, or enter South Tyneside for any reason other than to attend court.
It is understood that Waseem was held last month at a Premier Inn near Jade’s home in South Shields.
When contacted by the Gazette, Jade’s mum Norma did not wish to say anything.
