Beauty queen lived stalking nightmare as ex-partner followed her for 100 miles
September 1, 2021
A beauty queen lived in a stalking nightmare for 18-months as her ex-boyfriend bombarded her with calls and followed her for over 100 miles.
Rehema 'Remi' Muthamia shared her story after proudly being crowned Miss England 2021 on Friday.
In her brave acceptance speech, Remi said she wanted to open up about her story to try and help other women who are stuck in abusive relationships.
The health technology consultant said: "I would have to say that the most difficult experience that I've had in life is having gone through an abusive relationship and it's not something that people speak about, especially in young women – I am only 25.
"But knowing that I was able to come through that experience, learn more about myself and my worth, who I am as a woman and be able to now use this platform in Miss England to help other women that may be in my position."
The northwest London woman was harassed by her former boyfriend Lorenzo Dixon, 27 after they broke up in 2019.
Trainee lawyer Dixon reportedly followed her for nearly 100 miles on a train and bombarded her non-stop with calls, letters, texts, emails, and gifts.

He was given a 12-month community order, 30 hours of rehab, a restraining order, and was asked to pay Remi £500.
Describing her nightmare, Remi said: "Calls came in every few seconds.

"I'm scared I'll always have to look over my shoulder."
Remi reached the final under the brand new category of Miss All African Colours, and was able to clinch the title in Coventry after beating hundreds of hopefuls.
The proud winner bagged £2,000 in cash, a wardrobe of evening wear, a photoshoot, a personalized website, and luggage.
Remi is due to represent England at the 70th Miss World in Puerto Rico later this year.
Remi, who speaks four languages, said: "My family are so supportive, they can't stop talking about it, and the Kenyan community has really got behind me and wanted to support me and loved seeing someone from my heritage being represented."
