The Canadian woman accused of stalking Alec Baldwin managed to send him all-caps emails, according to the criminal complaint. Genevieve Sabourin's missives to the 30 Rock star allegedly read, "I NEED TO START MY NEW LIFE, WITH MY NEW NAME, WITH MY NEW CARRIER IN MY NEW COUNTRY HELP MY NEWLY HUSBAND, YOU!" and "I NEED YOU NOW, PLEASE ALEC COME AND PICK ME UP NOW. I AM LESS THAN 10 MIN AWAY FROM YOU TONIGHT. SAY I DO TO ME" and "I'M EXISTED ABOUT THAT PORTION OF THE PROCESS, CREATING GENEVIEVE BALDWIN AND GET ALL OF WHAT I WANT IS THE BEST PART."
Sabourin, 40, was arrested after repeatedly trying to approach Baldwin at his home in the Hamptons and at his home in Manhattan (he wasn't there). She apparently served as a unit publicist for the 2002 movie, The Adventures of Pluto Nash, in which Baldwin had an uncredited role, but it's unclear if they met during that film. Sabourin has told police they were lovers (she wanted to have his baby), but according to the Post's sources, Baldwin admitted that he "twice took her to dinner in 2011" but he said their relationship was strictly professional and not at all physical.
Of course, Baldwin is now now engaged to 28-year-old yoga teacher Hilaria Thomas, and that news allegedly sent Sabourin over the edge, bombarding Baldwin with calls and texts (a source said Baldwin changed his number). The Post tried to get a comment but, "Baldwin wouldn’t stop to talk to a reporter from The Post yesterday morning as he pulled his vintage navy-blue Mercedes sedan into his Hamptons driveway, chatting on his cellphone." Driving and talking on the cellphone?! For shame!
Also, Post columnist Andrea Peyser is worried about Thomas:
Here was a poor, misunderstood schlemiel just trying to help the career of a woman so clearly smitten with him. Baldwin had no choice. He had to wine and dine Sanbourin. Platonically, of course!
Baldwin — whose illustrious record also includes screaming at his 11-year-old daughter, “You thoughtless little pig” — seems to have a recurring problem with women in positions of authority, or with the ability to muck up his life.
No telling if this is, as Sabourin alleges, an affair gone sour. Or, as Baldwin claims, just a big, successful Hollywood star helping out a gal in need. No strings attached, natch.
Either way, he’s got a lot of explaining to do to his young doormat-in-training.
Baldwin himself couldn't help but mention his alleged stalker on Twitter:
Isn't it odd when an accused stalker is in handcuffs, being taken away by the cops, yet smiles for the cameras?
