- Christian Frattarelli, 36, moved next door to his ex Paola Fasoli in Chelsea

A former lover has been accused of stalking his ex through her video doorbell.
Christian Frattarelli, 36, moved next door to Paola Fasoli in Chelsea after he moved out when their romance ended last year.
But he was hauled to court last week accused of theft and harassment after Ms Fasoli made a complaint about his alleged behavior.
Frattarelli has been given an interim ban on going near his former partner.
Westminster Magistrates Court heard the then couple had been living together in her £ 700,000 flat from October to December last year.
But after the split Frattarelli moved next door and Prosecutor Samuel Rowe said the harassment had started.
He alleges it began when Ms Fasoli went on a break to Dubai for her birthday in February, an occasion Frattarelli had been due to go to but was uninvited after the split.

Mr Rowe told JPs:’Ms Fasoli alleges that … Mr Frattarrelli began contacting her by proxy, by causing her video enabled doorbell to switch on so that it would send her a notification and short video clip.
‘Ms Fasoli says that between February 2 and when she returned from holiday on February 11, Mr Frattarelli continued to send these short video clips to her by proxy including a series of offensive messages therefore he would walk past the camera and swear in Italian’
Then when a man left her home after a Valentine’s Day visit, Mr Frattarelli stood outside and applauded earnestly.

Mr Rowe added:’The following day, he proceeded to tear the video-enabled doorbell from her front door.’
Mr Frattarelli said via his laywer he would deny charges of theft and harassment.
Solicitor Robert Katz insisted:’There has been no contact since February. The doorbell belongs to Mr Frattarelli anyway.
‘He is moving out of his address later this month.’
Frattarelli will face court again on Thursday.
