Gwyneth Paltrow Testifies Against Stalker — The Details Are So Scary!
Gwyneth Paltrow had a carefree Sunday watching Super Bowl 50, but her Monday afternoon was anything but fun. The 43-year-old actress had to go to court to testify against her alleged stalker of 17 years.
Before the jury, the Oscar winner detailed terrifying harassment she claims to have endured for nearly two decades by the defendant, Dante Soiu, who sat mere feet away from her in the L.A. courtroom.
Apparently, the threats got so scary, she bought a guard dog to protect herself, 11-year-old daughter Apple, and 9-year-old son Moses Martin.
She even had a trainer teach the dog attack moves, TMZ reports, noting the actress “broke down” while giving her testimony.
We don’t blame the GOOP editrix, either, after reading some of the threats he would send. The accused apparently sent 66 letters, though he tried other methods of contact as well, including gifts and “sexually graphic material” left at her parents’ home.
In one of the letters, Dante allegedly threatened to “cut out sin” in Gwyneth’s body with a scalpel. Yeah, our skin is crawling, too.
Here’s hoping this trial will put an end to letters of that nature once and for all!
