A Melbourne woman who used the identities of celebrities, including Lincoln Lewis, to stalk women has been sentence to two years and eight months’ jail.

Lydia Abdelmalek, 29, was sentenced today at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court after being found guilty of six stalking charges.

Abdelmalek’s stalking left one of her victims, Emma, suffering from depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. She killed herself last year.

Another of Abdelmalek’s victims claimed she “ruined her life” with years of psychological abuse.
