NEW YORK ( - Alec Baldwin took to Twitter to accuse the New York Post, NBC's "Today" morning show and other news outlets of stalking him to get an interview about a woman charged with stalking him.

Baldwin tweets that crews from both organizations -- and others -- have been camped outside his Greenwich Village home in New York City. It is the same home where the Canadian woman, Genevieve Sabourin, appeared over the weekend, prompting him to call police.

"Outside my apt, "journalists" from the Post camped out to talk to me about stalking," he wrote late Tuesday. "They camped out all day. Wait. Isn't that.......?"

Baldwin added Wednesday morning: "Outside my apt today, alongside the other stalkers from the tabloid press, a crew that identified themselves as being with the Today Show. ... I haven't appeared on the Today Show in many years. But did they have to camp outside my apt?"

Baldwin, star of NBC's "30 Rock," tweeted repeatedly about his belief that the network's morning show was among the outlets that sent crews to his home. He finished one "Today" tweet with the hashtag, "#howthemightyhavefallen."

Sabourin, 40, was arraigned Monday in New York City on charges including aggravated harassment and stalking after appearing outside his home and allegedly sending e-mails and messages.

The New York Post has reported that Baldwin and the woman had dinner twice last year. The paper cited a law enforcement source who said Sabourin claimed a sexual relationship with Baldwin, but Baldwin said the dinners were "strictly professional" and denied any "physical relationship."

The denial didn't stop Post columnist Andrea Peyser from speculating that Baldwin's next marriage could be doomed. He is engaged to 28-year-old yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas.   Continued...
