LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A judge granted actress Salma Hayek a three-year extension of a restraining order keeping two women who have allegedly pretended to be the “Frida” star to stay away from her, her husband and their daughter.
The order against Liana Geordie Philippon and Odette Bodagh says they must remain at least 100 yards from Hayek, her husband, 53-year-old Francois-Henri Pinault, and their daughter, 7-year-old Valentina.
Bodagh was present in court. She wept and apologized for her actions concerning Hayek.
“I was just being stupid,” Bodagh said. Goodson said Bodagh’s explanation was unacceptable.
“Being stupid sometimes has its consequences,” Goodson said, also adding that stalking someone is not something you can take lightly.
Attached to the 48-year-old Hayek’s court papers are copies of numerous text messages in which the two women allegedly impersonated Hayek while communicating with others.
“In one communication, while posing as Hayek, Philippon made a veiled threat regarding kidnapping and ransoming Hayek’s minor child,” according to Hayek’s attorneys’ court papers.
Philippon has a documented history of mental health issues and also has impersonated actress Angie Harmon, according to Hayek’s attorneys’ court papers.
Both Philippon and Bodagh demonstrated “mental instability” during questioning by Los Angeles police investigators, according to Hayek’s attorneys’ court papers.
