Uma Thurman just can't shake this guy.
Jack Jordan, the 39-year-old former mental patient convicted of stalking and harassing the actress is allegedly at it again. He's violated a five-year protection order Thurman won against him by calling her repeatedly from his home state of Maryland, according to the NYPD.
What were his chilling words to her this time?
According to a police source, Jordan phoned the actress twice last week, once at her residence, reaching her assistant both times and warning Thurman that her boyfriend "was not good enough" for her and that she should "marry" him instead. Uma has been on and off with Swiss financier Arpad "Arki" Busson since 2007.
Thurman's assistant got the first call on Friday just after 7 p.m. and the second call the following day at 10 p.m. According to the source, Jordan demanded to know where Thurman currently was and said he wanted to speak with her. The calls were said to have "freaked out" the onetime Oscar nominee, who alerted the police.
"Uma had a criminal complaint prepared against this guy and filed on Oct. 31," says a police source. "No arrests have been made, but he is wanted here. If he shows, he's getting locked up."
Back in 2007, Jordan was busted outside her Greenwhich Village apartment. At that point he had been aggressively pursuing her for more than two years.
During a trial the following year, Thurman tearfully took the stand and testified that feared for the safety of her and her family. She shook as she read aloud a postcard he had sent her and avoided eye contact with him.
Jordan had written her creepy emails and threatened suicide if she saw other men.
"My greatest wish is that I had known sooner that I was putting feat into the heart of [Thurman]" Jordan said at his sentencing. His attorney had acknowledged that Jordan suffered from schizophrenia and is bipolar.
He was found guilty of one count of stalking and one count aggravated harassment of the star and managed to avoid jail after his Maryland-based family agreed to care for him, provided he seek psychiatric counseling and refrain from contacting Thurman.
