Madonna - Madonna Feared For Kids' Safety After Intruder Scare
Madonna was left feeling "alarmed and distressed" and fearing for the safety of her children after a man broke into her London townhouse, a court has heard.
The pop legend said Grzegorz Matlok's break-in was "extremely unsettling" in a victim impact statement read aloud at England's Southwark Crown Court on Monday (24Oct11).
The Polish national was arrested in March (11) after he was allegedly discovered in the singer's London home, nine months after breaking into the country house she shared with ex-husband Guy Ritchie.
In her statement, Madonna said, "I do not know the defendant, have never had any relationship with the defendant. I have never had any contact with the defendant, either by phone or by email, or any other way. I have never given him permission to enter the premises or any of my other premises.
"I feel alarmed and distressed by the actions of the defendant. It's extremely unsettling to know that despite the extensive security I have he has been able to break in to two residential properties owned by me. I am worried about the safety of my children, all of which are under 18. I am also worried about the safety of my staff and naturally I am also worried about my own safety."
Matlok has admitted burgling Madonna's office in London's Marylebone, but denied two charges of burglary relating to her house which is connected to it.
The two charges he denied were ordered to lie on the court file after prosecutors accepted his plea and Judge Deborah Taylor ordered Matlok to be locked up indefinitely under the Mental Health Act after doctors found he posed a "serious risk" to Madonna.
The 30 year old was also banned from visiting or contacting the star or her family.
