Due to high-profile celebrity status, she has many fans who want to approach her for “selfie” pictures and to speak with her. Ms. Z is very open to this and has been known to “wade into the crowd”, to be with her fans. In a visit to Philadelphia last year, to attend a similar awards show, she was accidently knocked to the ground as the fans surged past her 1-person protection specialist. She suffered cuts and bruises, but was very embarrassed by the photographs published of her lying on the ground writhing in pain. She has indicated this level of security was unacceptable and can’t happen again. She has received far more fan letters that are positive than those that are negative but recently starting be “stalked” in NYC by an overly aggressive female fan who wants to “work for her”. Ms. Z is known to invite people she meets to either have a meal with her or ride in her car to events.
