Alec Baldwin’s alleged stalker Genevieve Sabourin has been jailed following court outbursts.
The French-Canadian actress angered the judge presiding over the case with her constant flare-ups during proceedings on Wednesday.
Genevieve, 41, was then placed in contempt of court and she will spend 30 days behind bars for her interruptions.
“I can’t hear the attorneys. I can’t hear anyone speaking. I have warned you repeatedly. You have made it impossible for the court to proceed and for the proceedings to occur appropriately,” reprimanded Judge Robert Mandlebaum, according to The New York Post.
“You have been treated in this courtroom with respect. Like every other person in this courthouse you are not permitted to scream out loud,” he continued.
The trial is taking place at Manhattan’s Criminal Court and Genevieve is scheduled to testify in her own defense.
30 Rock star Alec accuses Genevieve of bombarding him with emails and phone calls after a platonic meeting between the pair.
After turning up to his East Hampton’s home in March 2012 Alec chose to get a restraining order. Genevieve supposedly violated the court mandate when she tweeted Alec’s wife Hilaria Baldwin and she was subsequently arrested for this contact in November 2012.
Recalling the experience, the 55-year-old actor called it “nightmarish” and “like something out of Hitchcock”.
To which Genevieve shot back, “You’re lying! Why are you lying? That’s not true!”
The case continues.
