Abdul Fan Took Overdose

An overdose of prescription drugs has been blamed for the death of AMERICAN IDOL judge PAULA ABDUL's alleged stalker last week, according to new reports.

PAULA GOODSPEED, a failed former Idol contestant, was found dead in her car close to the star's home in Sherman Oaks, California on Tuesday.

Police have indicated she may have died from a drug overdose, a theory which has been fuelled by new reports on website TMZ.com that "multiple prescription bottles" were found on her body.

Goodspeed is said to have become obsessed with Abdul after her brief audition for the show in 2006 and reportedly overdosed in the same area last year.

On Monday Abdul denied reports she has refused to return to her Los Angeles home since the tragic death because she fears Goodspeed is "haunting her house".

Abdul's spokesperson tells the New York Post, "She's been home since the incident happened. There's no issue with spirits. Paula is shocked and saddened by what transpired. Her heart and prayers go out to the Goodspeed family."
