Cumberbatch accuses ‘obsessive’ fans of stalking him

London, Oct 5 (IANS) Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has hit out at the “obsessive” sections of his fan base for “stalking” him and appearing “deluded”.

Cumberbatch, whose fans have nicknamed themselves ‘Cumberbitches’ in the past, laid to rest conspiracy theories surrounding his family life, reports

“There are people who believe that my wife is a PR stunt and my child is a PR stunt,” Cumberbatch told Vanity Fair magazine.

“I think really it’s to do with the idea that the ‘Internet’s boyfriend’ can’t actually belong to anyone else but the Internet.”

“It’s impossible he belongs to anyone but me. And that’s what stalking is. That’s what obsessive, deluded, really scary behaviour is,” added the “Sherlock” actor.
