Alec Baldwin can sleep easier at night knowing his stalker is behind bars.
On Thursday, a New York City judge found Canadian actress Genevieve Sabourin, 41, guilty of stalking, attempted aggravated harassment, harassment and attempted contempt of court. She was sentenced to six months in jail.
The trial was dramatic, even by New York City standards. The two did seem to have some history: Baldwin admitted on the stand he had dinner with Sabourin three years ago at an Upper East Side restaurant but said it was to give her “career advice.” She claims that afterwards, the two had sex and then “cuddled,” which the “30 Rock” actor denies (both the sex and cuddling). Baldwin allegedly said, “I make the best omelets in the world and I’d be happy to make you omelets every morning for the rest of your life.” He also promised her a trip to meet Richard Gere. Hello single girl fairytale! But then once he met his current wife, Hilaria, the fairytale ended. And that’s when her stalking began, with frantic calls, emails and even uninvited appearances at his house.
Sabourine says she just wanted to figure out what happened. “It’s not because he’s rich and famous that he can take advantage of women and throw them in the garbage,” she said.
