Alec Baldwin's Alleged Stalker Ordered To Stay Away
A Canadian woman accused of stalking Alec Baldwin has been warned to stay away from the actor and his fiancee by a judge in New York.
Genevieve Sabourin, 40, was arrested on Sunday after allegedly turning up outside the 30 Rock star's Manhattan home and she was booked on five misdemeanor counts of harassment and stalking.
She appeared at Manhattan Criminal Court on Monday for arraignment and was released on her own recognizance, but the judge issued a temporary order of protection - warning her to stay away from Baldwin and his fiancee Hilaria Thomas and not to send the actor any emails or text messages.
During the hearing, prosecutors revealed Baldwin had enjoyed a night out with Sabourin two years ago "as a favor to a friend," stating "they met "briefly for dinner in the fall of 2010."
They alleged Sabourin had since bombarded the actor with messages, but her lawyer insisted the relationship was "mutual" and there were "phone calls and texts going both ways," according to the New York Daily News.
Sabourin is due back in court on May 14th.
