TORONTO (AP) - A man accused of stalking Canadian country star Shania Twain interrupted testimony in his trial and declared in an outburst that he would plead guilty.

Giovanni Palumbo is charged with three counts of failure to comply with a court order and criminal harassment by watching and besetting.

Twain testified via a video link Thursday that the former Ottawa doctor’s lovelorn letters and unexpected visits at her family cottage made her feel uncomfortable. She says she had to hire security for a family gathering at her Ontario cottage because Palumbo was seen repeatedly parked in his Lamborghini down the road.

After roughly 90 minutes of Twain’s testimony, Palumbo abruptly stood and addressed her by her real name _ Eilleen _ and said he would plead guilty.
