As Gwyneth Paltrow's court battle with alleged stalker Dante Michael Soiu continues, the defendant's attorney told ET on Monday that her client has written letters to many other celebs, who didn't feel threatened.
"We're dealing with a lonely guy who's on supplemental security income, and sits in his apartment in Ohio at his computer and writes letters to Angelina Jolie, Sylvester Stallone, Julia Roberts, President Obama, Michelle Obama," attorney Lynda Westlund told ET. "None of it has ever been perceived by anybody else, besides Gwyneth Paltrow, as threatening."
The 43-year-old Oscar winner has accused the 66-year-old Columbus, Ohio native of stalking her over the last 17 years. Paltrow's recent court testimonies relate specifically to new correspondence the actress says she received from her alleged stalker, which reportedly included messages announcing his intention to marry her, references to her death, pornography, song lyrics and unsolicited gifts.
Soiu has plead not guilty in the case, and the defense denied the prosecutor's pornography claim. They argue that the letters are being taken out of context.
This week wasn't the first time Paltrow faced Soiu in court. In 2000, Soiu was committed to a mental institution for six years after a trial about messages he sent to the actress, but was rearrested last year after allegedly contacting the actress once again.
During day two of Paltrow's court battle on Tuesday, her former bodyguard, Dennis Bridwell, described letters he claimed Paltrow received from Soiu in 1999. Bridwell claimed that Soiu wrote about wanting to "make babies" with Paltrow and also hoped "to get naked" with her.
