Orla Sloan, better known as 'Devil Baby', stalked and harassed three Premier League footballers

A model who stalked Premier League footballer Mason Mount has avoided prison.

Orla Sloan, who is better known as 'Devil Baby', was sentenced today (20 June) after pleading guilty to stalking and harassing several players, including Mount, Ben Chilwell, who both play for Chelsea, and Brighton midfielder Billy Gilmour.

The 21-year-old, from Exeter, had briefly dated Mount, and became upset when he ended their relationship.

She then proceeded to contact the players through different social media platforms, and even claimed that she had fallen pregnant with Gilmour's child.

Sloan had previously pleaded guilty to stalking England star Mount, as well as stalking involving fear of violence or serious alarm or distress against Gilmour, and another charge of harassing defender Ben Chilwell.

Orla Sloan was sentenced for stalking and harassing three Premier League footballers.

Presiding over the sentencing, magistrate Alison Gowman described it as a ‘sustained and deliberate attempt to harass and stalk these individuals’.

At a hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court, Sloan was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison, which was suspended for 18 months.

She was also ordered to carry out 30 days of rehabilitation sessions and 200 hours of community service.

Sloan must pay Mount and Chilwell £300 each, as well as paying £500 to Gilmour.

During a hearing last month, it was heard that Sloan inundated Mount with messages, having changed her number 21 times as he kept blocking her from contacting him, before also rebranding herself as ‘Devil Baby’.

At one point, she sent him a screenshot showing she had paid £12.99 for a new number from Apple, writing: “I’m not buying food anymore so I can get more numbers.”

Sloan also told Mount: "You must apologise or you will unlock a new character - Devil Baby.”

She created an Instagram account with the username @DevilBaby_10, which she used to message Mount.

"I can morph at any time so let me apologise and set things right," she told him.

Mount became ‘concerned she had an obsession or fixation’ with him, having been unaware of ‘what she was capable of’.

He added in his statement: "Miss Sloane knows roughly where I live and where I train. I'm worried as if she is unable to contact me she might turn up at my training centre."

Gilmour told the court how the stalking continued even after he moved to Brighton and Hove Albion, with his new club forced to put safety measures in place due to his concern over Sloan.

He said: "I have not been able to sleep and I have had to take sleeping tablets which has affected my performance."
