A man has been arrested for attempting to kidnap singer Lana Del Rey in Florida on Friday.

43-year-old Michael Hunt was arrested near the Amway Center in Orlando, where Lana Del Rey was about to perform, The Guardian reports. Prior to his arrest, he had posted “cryptic and threatening” messages about the 32-year-old songstress on Facebook.

“When he was taken into custody, Hunt was in possession of tickets to the Lana Del Rey performance and a knife,” the Orlando Police Department said in a statement.

The Washington Post reports that a day before Lana del Rey’s Florida concert, Hunt had commented on a 2012 music video in which she sings of an ex, “I love him, I love him, I love him… I still love him.”

“I love you too,” Hunt replied above the video, according to Orlando News 6. “I’m so sorry I did this to us.”

He is now being held at Orange County Jail.
