Alec Baldwin appeared in court Tuesday, where he gave a teary testimony in the trial against his alleged stalker, Canadian actress Genevieve Sabourin. She claimed they were lovers and he jilted her.

CNN reported that Baldwin had claimed Sabourin's alleged stalking of both him and his wife have left the couple anxious and worried.

During his testimony, Baldwin was reportedly interrupted by Sabourin who screamed "you're lying!" as he described her as a stalker. Sabourin claims the two had been in a relationship and she was only trying to rekindle what she says they shared through her repeated attempts to reach the actor.

Baldwin cited several instances in which Sabourin allegedly appeared unannounced at this home, at one point ruining his engagement to his now-wife, Hilaria Baldwin, a 28-year-old yoga instructor from Mallorca, Spain.

The veteran Hollywood actor also alluded to numerous e-mails and voicemails the Canadian actress allegedly sent to Baldwin.

In one of those email messages obtained by CNN, Sabourin allegedly wrote, "I am less than 10 minutes away from you tonight. Say 'I do' to me," while another read, "I need to start my new life with my new name ... in my new country, help my newly husband, you!"

At some point the alleged stalker appeared to have come to the realization that the 55-year-old Baldwin was out of reach when she allegedly wrote: "I may have lost all the battles to win your heart over in the past two years, but I've learn (sic) so much."

Sabourin spoke with reporters outside the courthouse on Tuesday.


"I'm still in court because I refused that the only option was to destroy my future," Sabourin said. "I'm not gonna take a reduced plea for a crime I have not committed."

Sabourin was released from jail last year after having been arrested for violating a court order when she reportedly sent Baldwin and his wife multiple tweets.

"Ms. Sabourin has done nothing wrong," the actresses' attorney Todd Spodek told reporters outside the courthouse. "She never had the intent to harass, annoy, alarm, stalk or cause any inconvenience to Mr. and Mrs. Baldwin. She merely sought closure for a crumbling romantic relationship."

Baldwin repeatedly denied on the stand that the two had ever been involved in a romantic relationship.

Sabourin and Baldwin had both worked on the 2002 film "The Adventures of Pluto Nash," though according Baldwin's testimony, the two had first met in 2010 when he was introduced to her by a mutual friend at a dinner party.

If convicted, Sabourin faces up to a year in prison.
