In November 2008, Paula Goodspeed, an obsessive fan of Paula's who had once auditioned for "American Idol," committed suicide in a car outside the singer's house. "She had been writing disturbing letters for 17 years, almost 18 years," Paula told Barbara Walters. "We had restraining orders at times." And while Abdul protested, producers allowed Goodspeed to audition for Season 5 of "Idol" in 2006. "I really like Paula Abdul a lot," Goodspeed told Ryan Seacrest. "She's very cool. I'm a really big fan. I make life-size drawings of Paula. I've been drawing ever since I was a little kid, and my first drawing was of Paula Abdul." After the suicide, Abdul moved to a new home.
