Earlier this week, for those who missed the story, a 45 year old woman was arrested attempting to break in to actor John Cusack’s Malibu home, claiming she and the well-known star of Say Anything were soul mates. Though little information was released initially, we have just gotten word that the woman, named Elizabeth Diane Pahlke was officially charged with one account of attempted burglary and one account of attempted stalking, both of which are felony counts and could hold a four year, eight month prison sentence if she is found guilty. No word yet on whether or not she tried to sing In Your Eyes to him.
The story is that the woman was caught by John Cusack himself when he found her trying to enter a window at his Malibu home, at which point he called the police. By the time the police showed, they found the woman attempting to scale a fence to get to the actor. While details are still scarce, rumors abound that the woman suffered from some mental problems, and is said to have claims that she speaks directly to angels. As with most stalking cases, we have to wonder what kind of physical danger John Cusack may have been in had the woman actually been able to get to him. Just glad she didn’t.
For now, John Cusack can rest assured knowing she is in custody and waiting trial. We will release more information as it is made available to us.
