Baldwin due to testify vs. accused stalker in NYC
NEW YORK (AP) — Alec Baldwin probably isn’t relishing his part in this scene — a courtroom face-off with a Canadian actress charged with stalking him.
Baldwin is expected to testify Tuesday in Genevieve Sabourin’s (ZHAHN’-vee-ehv sah-boor-EHN’) trial in New York City.
Prosecutors say she bombarded the actor with messages professing her love and showed up uninvited at his New York and Hamptons homes in 2012.
Baldwin told police that he’s had dinner with her but that their relationship was purely professional.
She says they had a 2010 tryst and a two-way exchange of emails. Her lawyer says Sabourin wasn’t stalking the “30 Rock” star — just seeking “closure” after he stopped talking to her.
Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, is also expected to testify.
Baldwin’s spokesman has declined to comment on the trial.
