Alec Baldwin, Upset at ‘Today’ Show, Hints at Exit From ’30 Rock’; Meanwhile, He and His Accused Stalker Offer Different Versions of Their Relationship

Apr 11, 2012  •  Post A Comment

Alec Baldwin’s alleged stalker, French-Canadian actress Genevieve Sabourin, has declared that she and the "30 Rock" star were lovers and she wants to bear his child, reports the New York Post. Baldwin is now admitting that he took her out to dinner a few times, but said their dating was "strictly professional."

As we reported yesterday, Sabourin was arrested Sunday night outside Baldwin’s Manhattan apartment. Sabourin reportedly has been extremely vexed about the star since Baldwin became engaged to Hilaria Thomas, a 28-year-old yoga instructor.

Baldwin has denied having a physical relationship with Sabourin. He told police he took her out to dinner twice in 2011, but said he was merely trying to help her obtain movie roles, the story reports.

Sabourin has been sending emails to the actor implying a more serious relationship. The newspaper revealed an April 4 email in which she wrote, “I need to start my new life, with my new name … in my new country help me my newly [sic] husband, you!"

Sabourin’s attorney, Julie Sender, told the paper that Baldwin and Sabourin had a two-year relationship, but she did not say whether it was intimate in nature. “They met. They had dinner. They had a mutual relationship, with texts, emails going in both directions,” said Sender.

Baldwin’s press representative, Matthew Hiltzik, said, "We’re not responding to questions about the ongoing investigation."

In a related development, Baldwin unleashed an angry series of tweets aimed at a crew from NBC’s “Today” show for staking out his apartment, Fox News reported. And then he hinted that he may soon leave “30 Rock.”

Baldwin, using the hashtag #howthemightyhavefallen, tweeted today: "The television crew camped outside my apt said they were with the Today Show.” Then in a subsequent tweet he wrote: "A story about stalking sure brings out the stalkers in the media. But, the Today Show?"

Then came the potential bombshell: "I think I’m leaving NBC just in time," a tweet that sparked questions about Baldwin’s future on the NBC comedy "30 Rock," the story notes.

But the story adds: “A report last January in Deadline Hollywood said NBC had quietly re-upped the actor for next season — if there is a next season — and a source close to Baldwin said nothing had changed in terms of his status.”
