Not funny. This is most certainly the darkest part of being a celebrity. Kate Hudson was lucky enough to have a man who was obsessed with her get arrested before he did any serious damage. According to the Boston Herald,
Neil Bergman, 44, of Whitefield, N.H., was arraigned on burglary charges in Boston Municipal Court the other day and was packed off for a 30-day mental evaluation, the Suffolk District Attorney’s Office confirmed to the Track. Other sources report that after Bergman was apprehended, he allegedly ranted to cops about Hudson and her mother, actress Goldie Hawn.
“This suspect made statements to the arresting officers that indicated the individual had an unhealthy interest in Kate Hudson,” Boston police spokesgal Elaine Driscoll told the Track. “As a matter of caution, we alerted her security.”
To make sure that Kate was safe, her bodyguards were put on high alert and even supplied with a picture of Neil should he attempt to make contact in the near future.
Kate’s muscle, who shadow her while she’s in Boston filming the comedy “Bride Wars” with Anne Hathaway, have a photo of Bergman and have been on high alert, we’re told.
When arrested, police found two axes, computer equipment, a copper weather vane, outdoor flower pots, an Elvis plate, a Christmas tree and lots of women’s clothing in Neil’s car.
