Shania Twain stalker arrested at Junos in Toronto

Shania Twain’s alleged stalker, Dr. Giovanni Palumbo, 50, was arrested Sunday when he was spotted in the crowd outside the Air Canada Centre in Toronto where the Juno Awards ceremony was taking place. At the time, Shania was inside, receiving a place in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Palumbo appeared in court Monday where he was again ordered to “stay away” from the singer. Detective Michael Jander said, “One of her people had spotted him. He said he just wanted to meet her.” The doctor – who is already forbidden from going within 500 yards of the singer — will stay in jail until at least Friday, when his bail hearing will be heard. As Justice of the Peace John Jackson at Toronto’s Old City Hall ordered the man to “make no contact with Shania Twain” Palumbo — who was wearing a Shania t-shirt and carrying a book about her when he was arrested — laughed, saying, “You are all doing a wonderful job, Your Honour. I am in jail. How can I contact anybody?” He has previously stated that he wants to pursue a romantic relationship with the Canadian singer, who recently married.

    I feel bad for anyone who was or will be treated by this doctor. Doctor of LOVE maybe.
