Alec Baldwin Cries in Court After Stalker Alleges Sexual May-December Relationship

Alec Baldwin Court Case Genevieve SabourinAlec Bald­win is in the mid­dle of a bit­ter trial, but for once, it has noth­ing to do with his anger issues or run-ins with the paparazzi. The 55-year-old actor is fight­ing to have a younger woman, 41-year-old Genevieve Sabourin, charged for stalk­ing him.

Sabourin is claim­ing that she and Bald­win were once involved in an inti­mate May-December rela­tion­ship, a claim that the celebrity is vehe­mently deny­ing. Bald­win admits that he met the aspir­ing actress back in 2000 through a mutual friend, and that he met her for din­ner in 2010 to offer career advice. But that was it. Sabourin is argu­ing that their din­ner was really a roman­tic date and that it ended in a sex­ual nature, result­ing in a May-December rela­tion­ship that con­tin­ued after that date.

Sabourin is accused of leav­ing end­less voice mails for Bald­win, send­ing e-mails ask­ing him to marry her, show­ing up unex­pect­edly at his home and at var­i­ous events, and mak­ing vicious threats against his wife, 29-year-old Hilaria Thomas. The celebrity cou­ple finally had Sabourin arrested in April 2012 after she showed up unin­vited to their engage­ment cel­e­bra­tion demand­ing that he speak to her.

Ear­lier this week, Bald­win took the stand to tes­tify against his alleged stalker. He, again, denied that he was ever roman­ti­cally involved with the younger woman and admit­ted that her actions made him fear for his family’s safety. The actor even got teary-eyed talk­ing about the day he found her out­side his home. But Sabourin wasn’t buy­ing his sob story, yelling, “Why is he cry­ing? He’s lying,” in the mid­dle of his tes­ti­mony, adding, “I gotta prove that I had a sex­ual rela­tion­ship. I didn’t do any­thing wrong.”

Sabourin later told reporters out­side the New York court­room that she can prove that Bald­win is lying about their illicit May-December rela­tion­ship. “He’s lying to the court, which is per­jury, and he’s prob­a­bly lying to his wife in order to save his marriage.”

Baldwin’s young wife has also tes­ti­fied against Sabourin, say­ing that she con­stantly harassed her via Twit­ter and that she was “ter­ri­fied of her.”

The trial is still ongo­ing, but if Sabourin is con­victed for the 24 counts of stalk­ing and harass­ment against her, she could spend up to one year behind bars.
