A woman who stalked Harry Styles has been jailed and banned from seeing him perform.

Myra Carvalho, 35, who appeared at Harrow Crown Court sitting at Hendon Magistrates’ Court in London, was said to have stalked the singer by sending him 8,000 cards in less than a month.

She was sentenced to 14 weeks’ imprisonment after pleading guilty on Tuesday to a charge of stalking involving serious alarm or distress, a court official said.

A restraining order lasting for 10 years was also imposed on Carvalho who was also told she cannot attend any event where Harry Styles is performing.

Myra, who had been staying at a backpacker hostel in Kensington and Chelsea, south west London, was also ordered not to contact Harry Styles, directly or indirectly.

She has been told not to enter an area of north west London which was described in the court, the official added.

She was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of ÂŁ134.

Harry was reportedly left ‘shaken’ by Myra’s actions, after she was charged with causing him serious harm or distress.

The hitmaker had recently returned from a romantic Caribbean getaway with his actress girlfriend Taylor Russell, 29, when it is claimed he was targeted by the woman in North London.

A source said: ‘Harry was really shaken up. He had spent the start of the month in Anguilla with Taylor and James Corden and he’d had a great break.

‘This happened not long after he had come back. Harry just wants to carry on as normal, but this has been concerning.’

A spokesperson for Harry Styles declined to comment when approached back in January. 

Myra, who has a partner at home in Brazil, had left without her parents’ knowledge and expressed ‘sexual urges’ towards the 30-year-old actor and singer, the court heard back in February at her plea and trial preparation hearing. 

A restraining order lasting for 10 years was also imposed on Myra who was also told she cannot attend any event where Harry is performing. She was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £134

Her parents both attended the hearing back in February as they wept in court as they saw their daughter appear via videolink from Bronzefield jail in Surrey.

Her barrister, Clementine Simon, told the court her client’s doctor in Brazil believed she was suffering from a ‘manic episode’ and questioned if she was fit to enter a plea.

Judge Karim Ezzat sent her case to be heard at the same court on April 19 as Carvalho was remanded in custody.

Previously, Harry was reportedly left ‘shaken’ by his alleged stalker who is said to have harassed him. 

She appeared at Highbury Corner magistrates’ court on January 23 where it was heard she ‘pursued a course of conduct – namely harassment – which amounted to stalking causing serious alarm or distress’. 

The Sun said the charge added Carvalho’s alleged actions had a ‘substantial adverse effect’ on Harry’s ‘usual day-to-day activities’.

She was also reportedly told as part of the charge she ‘knew, or ought to have known, your course of conduct would cause alarm or distress’.

Harry was targeted by stalker Diana Tarazaga-Orero, 29, in 2022.

She forced her way into his home three years after being convicted of stalking, which The Sun said forced him to upgrade his security, which included employing a night guard and installing a panic lock on his bedroom door.
