Cusack's Alleged Stalker

Tells Her Side

7/20/2006 3:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


John CusackActor John Cusack's alleged stalker Emily Leatherman tells reporters her harrowing tale of sex trafficking, death threats and ransacked apartments.

Cusack claims that Leatherman "is showing an unusual interest by stalking, throwing long letters of interest over my fence in bags with rocks and screwdrivers inside..." Cusack also added that Leatherman "...threatens to commit acts of violence against herself if I do not help her."

The judge ruled that Emily Leatherman to stay 500 feet away from the actor and must not attempt to communicate with Cusack, even by phone or email.

So what does Leatherman have to say about all this? She insists that she was only trying to contact famous people in the media in order to have them tell the world her tale of being sexually assaulted and harassed. She insists that the police refused to help her and that Tom Cruise's PR assistant gave her tickets to see Mr. Cruise.

In any event, Leatherman guarantees she will not bother Cusack again.

Um...why not go to a local tv reporter and tell the harrowing tale of being a sex slave? Or how bout asking free legal aid to assist in the prosecution of these alleged sex traffickers? Someone should tell her about The Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW)...I found them pretty easily...by using google...She's a little off her rocker, for sure. Very sad if all she says is true.

I thnk the girl is not all there. That is right if you want your story out you go to the local news. They do stories like that all the time.

I find it rather stupid and sad that Tom Cruise's PR person would give her tickets to see him (if that is true). I assume those were MI III tickets.
If she had said she was a Scientologist maybe he would have listened. Very sad in many ways.

Tom Cruise tickets.........this surely must have minimized her brain cells. But better than scientology tickets, she might have become rabid after that. Give her K-Fed's number......

The idea that John Cusack--or any celebrity--should act as Emily Leatherman's therapist and that their backyard is made for tossing out her garbage is totally delusional.
