Shania Twain's alleged stalker arrested after being spotted at an awards ceremony
Shania Twain's alleged stalker has been arrested after he was spotted in the crowd at an awards ceremony she was attending.
Dr. Giovanni Palumbo, 50, appeared in court in Toronto yesterday (28.03.11) where he was again ordered to 'stay away' from the singer following an incident the day before when police escorted the man away from the crowd outside of Juno Awards at the Air Canada Centre, where Shania was receiving a place in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Detective Michael Jander said: 'One of her people had spotted him. He said he just wanted to meet her."
The doctor ' who is already forbidden from going within 500 yards of the singer will now stay in jail until at least Friday (01.04.11), when his bail hearing for alleged breaches of previous court orders will be heard.
As Justice of the Peace John Jackson at Toronto's Old City Hall ordered Palumbo to "make no contact with Shania Twain" he laughed and shook his head.
He said: "You are all doing a wonderful job, Your Honour. I am in jail. How can I contact anybody? I am in jail."
Previously the court had heard that Palumbo had sent the singer letters and flowers and turned up at her Muskoka cottage.
However, the charges were withdrawn because Shania was unable to testify in court at that time.
Psychiatric reports on the medic ' who was wearing a Shania t-shirt and carrying a book about her when he was arrested on Sunday (27.03.11) - have previously stated he wants to pursue a romantic relationship with the 'Still the One' hitmaker.
