New York, NY (AP) — Prosecutors say a self-described celebrity stalker sent e-mail and Twitter messages threatening to kill himself in Ivanka Trump’s New York jewelry store and “commandeer” her husband’s newspaper.
Justin Massler was released on $10,000 bond after his arraignment Thursday on stalking charges. The 27-year-old didn’t enter a plea.
Manhattan prosecutors say Massler dispatched alarming messages for about two years to Trump, the daughter of Donald and Ivana Trump.
She co-hosts Celebrity Apprentice and is a vice president at her father’s real estate company.
She declined to comment.
Defense lawyer George Vomvolakis says Massler never intended to harm Trump or her husband, Jared Kushner. He’s the publisher of The New York Observer.
