Dear TMZ, I'm the REAL Paula Abdul Stalker...

A self-proclaimed "Paula Abdul stalker" who was featured on season 7 of "American Idol" is furious with TMZ after a story we posted scared his friends and family into believing he was the one cops found in front of Abdul's house.

Paul Marturano, who sang that skin-crawling stalker anthem on last season's "Idol," wrote us a scathing email yesterday saying: "THANKS ALOT ... I have been getting endless emails and calls from friends and family memebers [sic] who saw your headline about the Paula Abdul Fan Death ... My mother cried thinking I was dead."

Creepy McCreeperton even signed the email "Paula Abdul's Stalker from American Idol Season 7."
