Celebs tremble as stalkerQuest takes off

Call for star spotter map site to be shut down

The essential guide to IT transformation

New York celebrities are quaking in their collective Ugg boots at the launch of gossip mongers Gawker.com's new Gawker Stalker site.

The site allows Manhattan star spotters to instantly post up the location and description of their targets on a Google steet map, according to the Daily Mail's foreign service. Critics are concerned that the precious stars might be mobbed everywhere they go. Unlikely-dubbed star agent Ken Sunshine, whose clients include Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck, fumed that the Gawker site is "outrageous".

Gawker editor Jessica Coen rejected Mr Sunshine's argument, chillingly warning: "If people are truly intent on doing some sort of sick harm to a certain celebrity that information for finding them is already out there."

Among the latest spots are learning difficulties-exploiting gagsmith Adam Sandler heading to the gym on the Upper West Side, and camel-larynxed gangsta rap artiste Jah Rule hopping out of his bimmer with entourage in tow. Riveting.

Gawk, and possibly stalk, for yourself here. ®
