Alec Baldwin’s wife Hilaria tells paparazzi to ‘stay away’ as search warrant is issued

Alec Baldwin’s wife has spoken out in defense of the actor, amid heightened attention to police issuance of a search warrant in fatal shooting on set of his film, Rust.

New Mexico Police on Thursday filed a search warrant and affidavit in Santa Fe Magistrates’ Court, requesting access to Baldwin’s phone as the investigation into the accidental shooting death of the director of Halyna Hutchins photography continues.

The actor’s wife Hilaria Baldwin took to her Instagram story hours later to show her own images of camera-wielding men taking pictures of them as they entered a building.

Accusing them of “trying to make fun” of her husband, with whom she shares six children, Hilaria Baldwin said the constant pursuit affected her post-traumatic stress disorder.

“These people are trying to taunt Alec,” she wrote over footage of a man pointing his camera in her direction. “It’s not good for PTSD. I’m sure it’s no surprise when you see this.”

Speaking directly to the paparazzi, she continued, “I understand that you want to make money… but it’s disgusting. And those of you who pay for these photos, it’s a shame.”

In a follow-up article, the Massachusetts native vowed to “protect” her family “until the end,” as she demands that her nine-year-old husband be left alone.

“Stay away from him,” she said. “Stop right now. Have a little humanity. Stop thinking about money and attention. Let the investigation take place. [its] process and it will play. You don’t need to come and traumatize him more every step of the way. They are my family and I will protect them until the end. “

The posts come weeks after a clip of Jon Levine from the New York Post shared a video of himself meeting the actor and his wife which then went viral on social media. In the clip, Levine was seen bombarding the star with questions as his wife asked the reporter to leave.

On October 21, an Alec Baldwin gun was returned to the set of Rust triggered during rehearsals, resulting in the accidental murder of Hutchins and the injury of writer-director Joel Souza.

In Thursday’s affidavit, investigators investigating the case have since requested access to the actor’s Apple iPhone in a bid to examine his text, email and social media communications, as well as browser activity and other information, depending on The Guardian.

“There may be evidence over the phone, due to individuals using cell phones during and / or after the commission of one or more crimes,” the document said.

“There have been several emails and texts sent and received regarding the production of the film Rust during (police) interviews, ”the affidavit continued.

Earlier in December, Alec Baldwin thanked his wife for standing by his side through “difficult” hours after his interview about the shooting aired.

During his interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, the star claimed the gun he was holding – which he didn’t know contained live ammunition – fired without him pulling the trigger. Production was immediately halted.

After the airing, the actor wrote in an Instagram post, “It doesn’t matter what happens to me. It doesn’t matter what I suffer. Whether I win or lose, anything. Anything. No one can m ‘take away the joy and love you have given me, me, @hilariabaldwin.

“These are tough times. The world is suffocating in the fumes of hate. But you gave me a reason to live. Our life with our family is all that matters to me. Nothing else. must. “

According to a previous search warrant affidavit, the weapon in question was handed over to Alec Baldwin by Rust assistant director David Halls, who indicated that the prop contained no live bullets by shouting “cold gun”.

A week after the shoot, Rust Gunsmith Hannah Gutierrez-Reed said in a statement through her lawyer that she had “no idea” where the live ammunition came from.
