Influencer harassed Premier League stars after Mason Mount break up
A model who had a one-night stand with Mason Mount stalked the England midfielder and bombarded his team mates with bizarre messages in which she dubbed herself ‘Devil Baby’.
Orla Sloan, 22, admitted targeting Mount, his Chelsea team mate Ben Chilwell and Scotland international Billy Gilmour in a terrifying campaign that began after a house party at Chilwell’s home.
She changed her number 21 times to keep contacting Mount when he blocked her, promising to stop buying food in order to save money for new Sim cards.
Mount, 24, said he was terrified she would show up at Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham, Surrey, and Gilmour, 21, who moved to Brighton and Hove Albion last year, said he was so traumatised he was unable to sleep.
Sloan, a social media influencer, was told she could face prison when she is sentenced on June 20.

Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard Sloan messaged Mount to say she’s ‘not buying food anymore so I can get more numbers’
Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard she met the footballers when Chilwell invited her friend to a party at his home via an Instagram message.
After the party, she and Mount slept together once, Jason Seetal, prosecuting, said.
‘There was communication between them for six months, following which Mr Mount decided that the relationship wasn’t going to progress to anything more and decided to end contact with the defendant,’ he added.
‘After this he was subjected to a bombardment of messages.’
Mount asked her to stop the texts and blocked Sloan’s number, but she began messaging him from different numbers, eventually using 21 in total, the court heard.
In one WhatsApp message, using the name ‘Only God 10,’ she wrote: ‘I found out about Bethany, Esme, and more – I will find out everything.’
She sent him a photo of herself paying £12.99 for a new phone number, saying: ‘I’m not buying food anymore so I can get more numbers.’
And Sloan also wrote: ‘I really want to say sorry and if you could just talk to me and tell me how you feel I would really appreciate it because I’m finding it hard to move on from the situation.
‘You must accept my apology and say sorry to me or you will unlock a new character called “Devil Baby,” so let me apologise and make it right.’
Sloan regularly posts pictures of herself in luxury settings from London nightclubs to beaches in Bali

Mount then began receiving Instagram messages from an account named ‘Devil Baby,’ which also published a collage of photos of the England star with other women, with the footballer, his friends and family tagged in the images.
In a statement read to the court, Mount, who has 36 England caps, said: ‘She knows where I live and where I train.
‘I’m worried as she is unable to contact me she might turn up at my training centre.’
Chilwell, 26, was also bombarded with messages from Sloan, and collages of him with other women appeared on the Devil Baby account.
Photo captions referred to ‘going through abortions’ and ‘being blocked after a few months’.
When he replied asking her to leave him alone, Sloan replied with eight more messages, the court heard.
Gilmour was also sent messages following the party, and raised concerns with Brighton, who put extra security measures in place.
Sloan also made false claims to have fallen pregnant by the midfielder, who joined the south coast club from Chelsea for £9million.
The Scotland international said: ‘This has had a very negative impact on me; I have been unable to sleep and have had to resort to taking sleeping tablets.
‘This has had a negative effect on my performances.

Sloan admitted one count of harassment without violence against Chilwell and two of stalking relating to Mount and Gilmour
‘During the time I consistently received messages from Orla I was in a new town where I didn’t know anyone or have any friends or family.
‘This was a person I met once for a very brief period of time.
‘The change in tone in her messages to try and get my attention was particularly worrying.
‘The attacks from Orla have damaged relationships and friendships I already had.’
Sloan admitted one count of harassment without violence against Chilwell and two of stalking relating to Mount and Gilmour.
District judge Neeta Minhas warned her she could face a jail term for the stalking offences when she is sentenced at the same court on June 20.
‘The starting point for one offence crosses the custody threshold, and it was targeting of three different people’, she said.
Sloan, who has 81,000 Instagram followers, boasted in an interview last April that she had made £50,000 in just four months after leaving her job at Marks and Spencer and streaming videos of herself eating Percy Pig sweets in the nude.
She regularly posts photos of herself enjoying lavish trips out in London, Bali, Mykonos and Indonesia.
