Paula Abdul

Rick Diamond/

A woman described as being obsessed Paula Abdul has been found dead after apparently killing herself in a car parked outside the American Idol judge's hillside home, police confirm to E! News.

LAPD officers found the body around 6 p.m. Monday after responding to a call in the 3800 block of Beverly Ridge Drive in Sherman Oaks.

Authorities have not released the name of the woman, who was in her 30s, but say she seemed to be fixated on the "Forever Your Girl" singer. The cause of death appears to be a suicide, and the body has been transported to the county coroner for autopsy.

Abdul's camp tells E! News that she is aware of the incident and plans to release a statement later today, after finishing up some Idol taping.
