In another message, Hunt allegedly stated that Del Rey "knows my face in her dreams" and "she's my always and forever to be." In a video, he reportedly said that he'd join Del Rey as she finished her tour, noting that the singer, as well as political figures like Vladimir Putin and Hillary Clinton, knew where he was.

The Orlando Sentinel added that Hunt had been arrested multiple times in the past and had served time in prison for charges including "burglary of an occupied structure, grand theft of a motor vehicle, grand theft with a firearm, forgery and possession and sale of marijuana."
