'Scream' Producer

I Was STALKED

by My Ex-Boyfriend

It's the stuff horror movies are made of -- "Scream" producer Marianna Maddalena says she was stalked for six months by her ex-boyfriend ... and she may not be the only victim.

Sources tell TMZ ... Maddalena -- who is Wes Craven's producing partner -- was dating a contractor named Derrick Toole in August 2010.

Law enforcement sources tell us Toole allegedly put an "E-blaster" on Maddalena's computer and a tracking device on her car -- which means he could read EVERY email she sent, every website she visited and GPS her location at any given moment.

Once Toole's tricks were discovered -- following an investigation -- a felony complaint was filed against Toole by the L.A. Deputy District Attorney for wiretapping, computer access and fraud.

The docs, filed this week, reveal the hacking and tracking shenanigans weren't JUST happening to Maddalena. Toole was also accused of pulling the same high-tech tricks in other homes.

A judge issued a restraining order against Toole, barring him from going within 100 yards of Maddalena and the other victims listed in the complaint.

Toole's lawyer had no comment had this time.

Ok aside from the stalking thing how did he do as a contractor and would she recommend him?

Why was a contractor:


Whose last name is "Toole"


- on her home computer?


-Getting a weird scent here.


...On the other hand she's hot.


-Produces with the greatest of them all -


...Wes Craven.


-So maybe she simply trusted the wrong guy.

The most interesting thing about this story?


We simply can't tell who-people-are.

The seemingly gregarious and trust-worthy?


Will slit our throats for ten cents.


If it even takes ten cents.

The only things I let into my house?


-Are the entries I can't control.


A spider through the back bedroom window, etc.


People?


People I don't let in.


Contractors I report.

If I even SEE one on my street.

Racial-profiling needs to change.


Police need to start pulling-over.


ANYONE with a suspected contractor's license.


-Vans with lettering, etc.


Stallone had the same problem -


Dude took a check for ten grand -


Dropped off a kitchen cabinet three days later.


Hasn't been seen since.

If I were her, I'd hire one of those tech savvy guys on the under and have them level the playing fields 10x over with this guy. I mean have him tied up into some domestic terrorism bs with connections to international terrorist groups. So much so, the FBI, CIA, and DHS will know everytime he farts or jacks off while watching porno on the computer. Besides, LA county will let him out in a jiffy anyways. She's just wasting her time with the "local" justice system.

"...she visited and GPS her location at any given moment. "

This is the first time I've seen "GPS" used as a verb.

Physically installing a piece of software on someones computer is NOT 'hacking' in any way shape or form. Get a freaking clue TMZ.

You guys are a bunch of idiots!! They dated for 2 years and he dumped her because she was psycho and a slut. She stalked and persued HIM. Derrick actually is a great guy and a terrific contractor. It's amazing how lies can spread.

I agree with Jane R. I have known Derrick for many years and he is a fantastic guy. He was dating Marrianne for a while and she was crazy. He left her because she lied to him and was dating other guys even though she was wanting to get married to Derrick!!. She couldn't take rejection and was real vindictive! Stacking can go both ways, its not just men that do it!
