Lorde took to her Twitter account on Saturday night to accuse a photographer of "stalking" her and subjecting her to fear.

Lorde has claimed a photographer has been "stalking" her.  The 17-year-old singer took to her Twitter account on Saturday night to accuse Simon Runting of violating her privacy and subjecting her to fear.

She added: "this should not be an accepted standard for young women or anyone in this industry (sic)".

She then posted a link to his private Facebook page before admitting that being photographed regularly comes with being famous, but she won't be frightened in the process. She tweeted: "i refuse to stay complicit and i refuse to stay passive about men systematically subjecting me to extreme fear.

"i understand that this comes with the territory. i do not understand why I should be complacent. (sic)".

It is not known what sparked the online rant from Lorde, but this isn't the first time the photographer has angered a star.

Last year, Rihanna (26) blasted Mr. Runting after he took photographs of her standing in her hotel room in Auckland, New Zealand, wrapped in a blanket.
