Letterman's Former Hookup Banned from CBS Set

10/7/2009 5:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Stephanie Birkitt -- the woman at the center of the David Letterman sex scandal -- has been banned from setting foot on the CBS set where the "Late Show" is filmed.

Birkitt used to be David's assistant -- appearing on the "Late Show" numerous times -- and later became his personal attorney. It was Birkitt's ex-boyfriend -- Robert Halderman -- who discovered Letterman's secret relationship with her ... and then allegedly threatened to release the scandalous information unless Letterman forked over $2 million.

Sources tell TMZ that security at CBS is well aware of Birkitt's ban from the set.

Worldwide Pants just issued the following statement: "Stephanie is on paid leave of absence ... she has not been banned from the Ed Sullivan Theatre."

But TMZ just spoke with someone associated with security at Letterman who just told us, "Security got a verbal order that she is 'banned' from the property for the time being."

David is older.David was HER boss. They both had sex. David OK. Woman loses her job. It is like the dark ages at CBS.

David will go free. His wife will keep him, if not only for the money. And the poor girl at the studios will be banned. Go figure.

She should sue David Letterman. She should be given a medal for helping expose Letterman for the coercive date rapist he seems to be.

WHY The BAN ??? She had nothing to do with it, right?

CBS can't ban her. She's not their employee. She is an employee of
World Wide Pants. David Letterman is not a CBS owned show. World Wide
Pants and David own it. Thus it is not a CBS set. CBS can't do
anything to her because she is not their employee. She works for
David's company which is separate from CBS. And considering that WWP is headquartered in the building above the theater, I would think they would own it and CBS would have no say in who can be banned. Besides, A rep told Gossip Cop that their is no banned and she is on a paid leave of absence.

If this is true, then CBS has a lawsuit on their hands, punishing one employee but not the other. Highly biased to the successful man who brings in the dough for them. They can't be that stupid, can they? Um, yeah, probably.

"Stephanie is on paid leave of absence ... she has not been banned from the Ed Sullivan Theatre."

Really is it? And this is quoted by Worldwide Pants, Inc. (lol) Hmmm.. David Letterman must still have that itch to bang it with his ex flame, Stephanie at the Ed Sullivan Theatre then. ;-]

He's just another Idiot    

Dave is a PERVERT, besides being a creepy old man. Conan is a complete bore. In our town there are reruns of Two and a Half Men" at their time so I don't watch those two pathetic. unfunny deadbeats. NBC really goofed when they fired Leno on The Tonight Show. I want him back at that time.

Can't believe what a sleazebag Dave has turned out to be. No wonder he's a Democrat.
