Uma Thurman Due In NYC Court Tomorrow To Testify Against Her Stalker
UPDATE: JACK JORDAN, UMA'S STALKER, CONVICTED AND SENTENCED TO 1 YEAR IN JAIL. (MAY 2008)
Actress Uma Thurman is due in Manhattan Criminal Court in NYC on Thursday to testify against a man who has been stalking her for the past 2 years.
Yesterday, Thurman's parents testified in the courtroom and made clear that the stalker Jack Jordan, a former mental patient, needs serious psychiatric help and they hope he receives just that in lieu of jail time.
Dr. Robert Thurman is Uma's father and a professor at Columbia University. Dr. Thurman testified yesterday to receiving more than 20 e-mails from the alleged stalker regarding his famous daughter.
Brigitte Thurman, Uma's mother, testified that she received lots of phone calls from the stalker and that she explained to him that her daughter Uma has no interest in him and that he is living a fantasy.
The stalker, Jack Jordan is 37 years old and has been very irate toward the media in front of the Manhattan Criminal Court when approached for questioning.
Yesterday (April 29) was Uma Thurman's 38th birthday.
