Craig David films new music video while alleged stalker appeals against a stalking protection order

Craig David looked in high spirits as he was spotted filming his new music video in London’s swanky Primrose Hill on Wednesday. 

The 41-year-old singer was joined by a camera crew as he performed in the park, while on the other side of the city his alleged stalker visited court in an attempt to challenge an order saying she can never see the singer again. 

The Insomnia singer was clad in a denim jacket and joggers as he mimed his new track ahead of the release of his eighth album.

Flanked by a large crew, the Brit Award winner sang directly to the camera as it followed him along the grassy trail. 

Holding his hands out for the animated performance, Craig was later seen holding his heart in an emotional pose. 

Craig’s outing came the same day as his stalker, who believes she is the MOBO winner’s girlfriend, attempted to challenge a court order which says she cannot see the singer.

Tanya Jeal appealed the stalking protection order imposed on her at Bromley Magistrates Court in South London.    

The novelist, 31, hasn’t been convicted of stalking but has an order banning her from seeing David for a year.

According to The Mirror, the court heard Tanya plans to challenge the order and told the court she plans to call the pop star as a witness. 

She was handed the stalking protection order in December when Highbury Corner magistrates’ court in north London heard how she also booked into the same hotel as the singer, contacted his parents and stood motionless while holding up the same photo at the front row of one of his gigs.

The singer-songwriter told the court how Jeal posted on Snapchat: ‘I know you love me’, and that she would repeatedly knock on his hotel room door after climbing fire exits.

The Met Police obtained the interim order on Craig’s behalf.

Michael Rhimes, representing the force, told the court: ‘It is clear she is infatuated with him. It is clear she thinks he is her boyfriend. He is not.’

He added: ‘She has made comments attempting to incriminate his managing team.

‘She seems to think this is a ­Britney Spears-type situation where she thinks his management is exploiting him.’

The record producer found fame in 1999 after appearing on the single Re-Rewind by Artful Dodger.

A year later, Craig released his debut studio album, Born to Do It, which included hits such as Fill Me In and 7 Days.

It sold over 7.5 million copies worldwide, making it one of the biggest albums by a UK R&B artist.

The Southampton native boasts an impressive discography and released his sixth album, Following My Intuition, six years after number five, Signed Sealed Delivered.

Despite his brief album hiatus, it soared straight to number one – his first album to do so since Born To Do It.
