Carvalho has also been handed a 10-year restraining order. This will prohibit her from attending any event where Styles is due to perform at in the next decade.

The Brazilian national was also told to to contact him directly or indirectly, and has been told not to enter a specific area of north west London. She was also instructed to pay a victim surcharge of £34.

It comes after Carvalho wrote a number of handwritten letters to the Watermelon Sugar singer, as well as ordering a number of cards online to be sent to his address. The court heard that of the 8,000 cards sent to Styles, some included wedding cards, with two hand-delivered to his home.

According to court documents, she had been staying at a backpacker’s hostel in Kensington and Chelsea during her time in London. The court was also told that her family were unaware that she had travelled to the UK.
